Lite-On announces the external slim DVD/CD writer, eTAU208. Created for optimum portability, the external eTAU208 is USB-powered, lightweight.

The eTAU208 is a great travel companion for any netbook without a built-in optical drive. It is powered directly from the notebook through the enclosed USB cable, so there is no need for an AC adapter or nearby outlet. Weighing less than 0.7 lbs, the lightweight device fits easily in any notebook bag and is ideal for travelers, busy professionals and students.

The eTAU208 is a compact, sleek, and round corner designed portable device. With the distinctive built-in USB cable holder, you can neatly store the USB cable and also be certain the cable is in place every time you use the drive. It is also integrated with a top-loading mechanism for convenient CD/DVD backup and playback.

This unique top-load design has no tray, which not only makes it lighter, but reduces the risk of mechanical and electronic malfunction as well. The mechanic lock on the top-loader makes it easy to retrieve or place a disc without the drive plugged in, and when on the go, it can be opened from any angle even with a little amount of space.
