If you are using a
netbook you learn to appreciate the all the benefits that you can get from that
platform, however there may come a time that you need to burn an audio or an
mp3 CD which is the first disadvantage of a netbook. The easiest solution is to
get a portable USB powered optical drive. In this review I will be taking a
closer look at the eSEU206 BD Combo drive from Lite-On. The eSEU206
is a USB2 slimdrive that can read Blu-Ray discs at 6x, burn CD-R/RW at 24/24
and write on DVD±R at 8x, DVD+RW at 8x, DVD-RW at 6x and on DVD-RAM media at
5x.
