It’s made of aluminium but feels flimsy, much like an empty can of coke which is also made of aluminium. It introduced me to their LightScribe technology, and although wasn’t stated as Mac compatible, worked fine. LightScribe burning comes with three settings, and is as fast or as slow as is LightScribe standard despite the speed, the result is well worth it and looks much more professional than handwriting the contents of the disc with pens! The best deals on laptops, tablets, PCs, gaming and much more! Act like your business depends on them Backups:

Newegg keeps the Black Friday spirit alive with more deals for Cyber Monday.

This product was an excellent investment and much cheaper than having to upgrade the internal dvd recorder. While you’re waiting for it to come up, the rest of the computer slows down to nil speed and even when it does come up, it’ll still say that there’s nothing in there when there is! The option to use Firewire or USB2. So this can be considered useful as a truly portable drive, more so than the larger external drives you can buy.

Customer reviews

There was a problem loading the comments at the moment. I really dvdd emphasise how strongly I recommend this drive if you’re in the market for a portable DVD drive – not only does it do the essentials, it is extremely well designed, robust, stylish and comes with extras, such as LightScribe. The device takes up a very small footprint on the desk which, for my situation, is truly excellent. LightScribe xvd is in built, meaning if you use specific LightScribe discs – 5 free ones from Philips are included – you can design and print images onto the disc, using the laser to ‘burn’ the image onto the top of the disc.

I connected the dvd recorder to my mac desktop with a firewire and no icon appeared on the screen. I rang again a few times later only to get the same person so I gave up.

As stated in the tech spec this drive works with both Windows and Mac systems.

Not fast, but I even managed to update my operating system on the mac using it to read the instal dvd. Disabling it will result in some disabled or missing features.

Dgd you ring a helpline I would expect a better service than this, I could hardly hear or understand the person. Try to run this from a machine with a weak power supply and it’ll sap the life out of it.


Then I opened up cover designer and effortlessly designed a nice label for the disk, complete with image, to test LightScribe. At first I was confused: It’s made of aluminium but feels flimsy, much like an empty can of coke which is also made of aluminium. In my environment that isn’t a big problem but if you are looking for primarily a DVD player as opposed to burner then perhaps another choice.

It filled one of the 5 included LightScribe CDRs within 3 minutes with mb of data which is much faster than my old one. Reads discs with a diameter of 8 and 12 cm CD: It works without any problem. Although it had some use to begin with, it became very picky about whether or not it was going to bother to read the DVD slotted into its wobbly tray. Get a 4-terabyte USB 3. I’m looking at replacements now, but this one wasn’t worth the money. Only just bought this and it was ‘Dead on arrival’.
