An external DVD writer can be a great idea when your computer lacks the room for an addition optical drive. These portable drives are a bit more cumbersome to carry than a USB flash drive, but blank DVD's make them cost effective.
Today we take a look at Samsung's new WriteMaster SE-W164 External DVD writer. The SE-W164 features a slim compact design, can be used both horizontal and vertical using the vertical stand, and can burn 8.5 gig DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media.
The WriteMaster SE-W164 is a sleek looking device that comes with a power supply, USB cable, vertical stand and a copy of Nero Express burning software. The stand is a great addition allowing the unit to be placed on its side and thus taking up less desktop space.
The WriteMaster SE-W164 is USB 2.0 compliant device with 2 megs of cache memory. It supports a wide variety of Discs including the following: DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW, DVD-Video, DVD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, CD-ROM/XA, CD-Audio, Video-CD, Photo CD, CD-I(FMV), CD-Extra, CD-TEXT.
