Thanks, have added it to the title

Shame I forgot to use it myself...

Great price - I bought the white one from ebuyer a while back and paid a few quid more including delivery.

Ordered myself

to those who have this, can you give me a review. or can someone explain to me which one is more durable among external optical drive especially between the top loader and the slide out one. thanks:)

What gb hardrive can be used with the usb? Dad got a dvd player and it can only use 160gb or less

It's personal preference more than anything.

I prefer a top loader as I don't need a slide-out drive as it'll be on a low flat surface (on my TV cabinet).

It also removes the chance of snapping the slide-out tray off, and if the top hinge falls off a top-loader (for some reason) you could still use the drive.

That version can only read discs, not write to them.

Great price for a USB DVDRW!! Ordered a white one to match the netbook.

Had one of these for ages. Great drive. Very useful how the USB cable fits underneath the unit when not in use.

Excellent deal ordered to go with my netbook.

No. I'm waiting to hear back from them. Should be interesting

Mine arrived today. Unfortunately it didn't come supplied with any Motown but the only thing I was concerned about was whether it was bootable on my Acer Aspire One netbook. I can confirm that it is bootable.

Mine has just turned up, brand new, everything working ok.

Cheers again OP

just to confirm it burns dual layer disks fine

6x max though,
