Product details

With its scintillating black cut-diamond design, the Asus SDRW-08D2S-U LITE External Slimline SATA DVD Writer works with both PC (including Windows 8) and Mac to make disc burning more efficient and multi-faceted.

Blending technology with aesthetic appeal

The precisely-rendered lattice-like black diamond motif adorning this Asus DVD Writer mirrors the cutting-edge technology it contains.

From advanced disc encryption, extended file functionality and an easier disc burning method, this computer accessory has it all. Achieve 8x speeds in a chic, portable disc burner that offers better environmental performance in addition to top-flight optical storage.

Improved disc security and operability

The Asus SDRW-08D2S-U LITE is able to provide double security on the discs you burn, including password-controlled access and hidden-file functionality for greater protection.

It offers a unique and highly convenient Drag-and-Burn facility, which gives you a friendly Interface that requires only three simple steps to burn a disc. Now you can intuitively create new optical discs with the minimum of hassle.

Saves power

Green technologies contribute to a healthier environment, so the SDRW-08D2S-U LITE DVD Writer employs an E-Green engine to conserve energy.

Its E-Green Mode automatically closes drive applications when the drive hasn't been run for two minutes. This can help save up to 27% power consumption over similar drive models. Elsewhere, QuieTrack allows the drive to run far more quietly, lowering noise pollution.

E-Green also displays detailed information on how much energy you've saved and the corresponding amount of CO2 saved, helping you stay more energy-conscious.

Get up to speed with the Asus SDRW-08D2S-U LITE External Slimline SATA DVD Writer – great for all your optical storage needs.
