    Great Optical Drive, but Price is Ridiculous

    By keiranranran

    from Missouri


    • Good performance
    • Metal Finish is BEAUTIFUL


    • A little noisy
    • not as portable as I'd like
    • pretty bulky AC cord
    • Price (found the plastic version for about 70 bucks)

    Best Uses

      I am satisfied with getting this because it gets the job done for the x series I just bought, but I wish I had seen the plastic one on Newegg before I went and spent $140 bucks on this one. Is the metal finish REALLY worth $70 more dollars? come on.


      DRX-S70UW is a high ...

      By Anonymous

      from Istanbul, Turkey

      DRX-S70UW is a high performance DVD writer. But it has a separate power supply for 5VDC. USB cable is for data only. f you use a standard USB cable with power, it does not work with it. Thus you are obliged to use a separate power adaptor. If you are on the way with no access to mains you cannot use this DVD writer. I am disappointed !

      Requires AC Connection - not a portable DVD Drive!

      By Jaffrey

      from Falls Church, VA

      If you are looking for a portable DVD drive for your X-Series Notebook (like I was) then this is not it! I paid $90 after the $30 offer with my purchase, so the cost for this drive is pretty low for the very good performance, excellent Nero software and solid build.
