LiteOn eTAU108 External Top-Load DVD/CD Writer Review

Review Score:
1 Flares 1 Flares ×

At KitGuru we review a plethora of different products but it’s not often that we look at things like optical drives which are reasonably homogeneous in design and don’t differ greatly in terms of performance.

Today we are going to look at LiteOn’s latest external DVD/CD writer, the eTAU108, which is designed with portability in mind.  It draws all the power it needs from a single USB port meaning it can be used with a laptop on the move.

    Liteon are a good optical drive maker, always buy them for internal DVD drives for my system builds. This time however id like to get a usb 2 powered blu ray unit, like the one zardon reviewed last month in the HQV article. seems to make more sense in 2010 for media options also.

    This is a very good product, interesting to see more of these reviews on kitguru, rather than just the high end cpus and graphics cards. monitors and these little items are great reads.

    Very cool idea of using macintosh computers now and then. like to see a balance on tech sites.

    Seems the first thing to go on Netbook and ultra light Notebook computers is the DvD R/W. This small USP plug and play fills my need for a DvD on both a Netbook and a Ultra light.
