I am in the market for an external DVD Burner. I am currently using an HP laptop and am looking to get an Asus EEEPC, so I want something external USB that I can use with both computers. I have been doing some research and been using newegg's review center to find out alot of things. It just seems that every External DVD Burner has some bad reviews and it is hard trying to pick through DVD drive failures and some computer ignorance. I have checked out a lot of big brands like LG, Samsung, Sony, HP, Pioneer. I am leaning towards the Sony DRX-840U, but everywhere I check it is almost $100 USD. The samsung and LG are about $50. I am just wondering if the extra $50 is worth it, or should I stick with something else. Does anyone have any recommendations on an internal DVD burner comboed with an External 5.25 enclosure? thanks for any help in this matter. It is greatly appreciated.
