The MediaStation 8x Portable DVD Drive DVSM-PC58U2VB is an affordable, portable DVD writer with a sophisticated LED power indicator. This external DVD writer is the ideal companion for a laptop or Netbook and is a high quality alternative to laptop manufacturers' pricey options. The MediaStation 8x Portable DVD Drive includes two integrated USB cables that snap to the chassis for easy mobility. Powered by your laptop USB ports, no AC adapter is necessary. If the power from a single USB port is insufficient, the red LED will glow, indicating additional power is required. In this instance, the convenient USB Y-cable allows you to connect to a second USB port to power the unit. The MediaStation 8x Portable DVD Drive also includes CyberLink DVD software suite for Windows, letting you create CDs and DVDs with music, pictures or videos with ease. This portable DVD writer is covered by Buffalo's 2-year warranty.
Compact, all-in-one solution 3/6/2013
This is one of the most compact external DVD+/-RW DL drives out there due to the integrated cords. Only negative, for some, might be the short length of the cords... but these are fine for my setup. Great travel drive to sneak in the bag.
