Introduction

Product on Review: ASUS Extreme Slim DVD-RW Drive
Manufacturer and Sponsor: ASUS
MSRP: £43.99



There has been a big push recently, especially for home users and those on the go to invest in netbooks. Smaller than the traditional notebook, a netbook has various aspects removed entirely. The optical drive being one of the key features absent. Instead, netbook users are forced to opt for a portable solution, one such solution we are taking a look at today.

ASUS don't only provide us with phenomenal motherboards and graphics cards but they are a forerunner in many other categories. We have seen their ambition in the portable media division, today we are taking a look at the ASUS Extreme Slim DVD-RW Drive otherwise known as ESEDRW-08-H. One of the slimmest DVD-RW portable solutions on the market to date.



ASUS Take:
You need extra storage and playback but canít spare the space and weight. Not an issue, the new Extreme Slim External DVD-RW Drive offers reliable, full DVD read/write functionality thatís so thin at 14mm, it fits anywhere. With USB connectivity and no power adapter needed, it also works effortlessly every time, and looks truly chic in brushed metal and a slender square form thatís cool to carry.
