I picked this up to create image and backup discs of several netbooks. The drive is sleek and portable, needs no external power and is reliable. The fact that is has lightscribe is a great bonus for such an affordable and reliable drive.

These devices are for those desktop user who don't have a dvd drive or the hot new Netbooks which by design don't include a DVD (or CD) drive. But my 2 different manufacture netbooks (Toshiba & Eee)don't supply enough power to the external dvd drive to load as a usb device or to spin a cd. Therefore it's a paperweight. Unless you spend extra money (per instructions) to buy a power adapter from Memorex. Look at the box or other manufacuters to see if it comes w/ a power cord.

DVD Recorder

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

It works well, and the price was great. I love the size and weight of the equipment and it will serve me well. I searched many stores in the area and they had products that were more in price and in my opinion not as good as the product I purchased. Staples is a great place to shop . This is especially true when the store is having a sale. The prices for an item like mine was low and the price for the performance is unbelievable. I would recommend this product and people going to Staples to purchase it. The store personnel were very helpful and gave me honest advice about the items I purchased.

Memorex External DVD Recorder

By Dennis

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

I recently purchased a new Toshiba computer from Staples and knowing it did not have a DVD reader or recorder, I looked at the variety available to me at the same Staples store. I settled on the Memorex External DVD Recorder due to several factors:
. Compact Size
. Media Variety
. Ability to increase power by using two USB ports
. Speed

I have used the device to read some older DVDs and also used it to create my system back up discs. With the variety of media supported, I was able to create my system backup with only two DVD discs.
