Nice Portable External CDRW Writer
I had just purchased a new ASUS Eee PC netbook, and an ASUS N10 Series Notebook that don't have an internal CD. I've been looking for a portable USB External DVD/CDRW Writer at a reasonalbe price, and found one in the Addonics DVD Write/CDRW. The ASUS Eee PC is a great little Netbook, but the USB ports have very low voltage for external devices. I learned this when I purchased an external floppy only to find out that when I plugged in it would kill the netbook due to the lack of power. To solve the problem I found and tested a Sony brand external floppy, and it worked just fine. That experience made me realize that I now needed a USB combo DVD/CD writer with an external power supply. Although I have not tested the Addonics DVD/CD Writer on the Eee PC without the power supply connected assuming it needed to be powered up, I did test it on the on the N10 Series 10.2 inch Notebook, and it worked great. Like all external DVD/CD devices it was a bit slow, but I anticipated that in advance. I had really hoped I would find an external DVD/CD writer that I could use without a power suppy when I traveled. Although the unit is a little more bulky than I had hoped, it worked well. I'd recommend the Addonics DVD/CD Writer to anyone with an ASUS Eee Network, and the ASUS N10 Series Notebooks because you will need an external DVD/CD at some point.
