ASUS External Slim SDRW-08D1S-U DVD Burner

While not nearly as intriguing as ASUS' recent tie-up with Garmin, the outfit's newest external optical drive is still a looker. The stylish External Slim SDRW-08D1S-U measures in at just 6.1- x 5.5- x 0.8-inches, arrives in black or white and burns both writable CDs and DVDs. The unit also comes bundled with a stand for those intent on showing it off, and ASUS has also tossed in a CyberLink-based burning program to handle those duties if you're currently in need.

As expected, the drive gets both data and power via a single USB 2.0 plug, and there's also Disc Encryption technology tossed in, which allows users to password-protect an entire disc or its partial contents with 128-bit encryption. ASUS has yet to come forward with pricing, but you can have a glance below to see if the burn rates are even up to your standards before you start hunting one down.
