LITE-ON eTAU208 slim external DVDRW

Overall Score

Nice packaging.. and very informative! LITE-ON supplies all the information you could ask for on the outside of the box without getting too flashy about the design of the packaging.

The external drive is pretty small measuring about 142mmx19mmx143mm (5.5″x.75″x5.6″, WxHxD) The eTAU208 uses a single USB cord for power and connectivity. It uses a mini USB connector for plug in, while a standard Type-A USB plug is used to connect the device to your PC. The cord measures about 280mm (~10 inches). Using a single USB adapter for power and data eliminates the need for an external power supply/plug to power the DVD drive. You also use only one USB port on your PC and leave the others, if available, open.

This unit seems built for a netbook. Netbooks are small, lightweight and portable, as is this drive. Lets see how it performs when paired up with an Atom based netbook.
