The new Extreme Slim External DVD-RW from ASUS combines attractive aesthetics with the advanced optical media features demanded by portable PC users in a single slim, USB-powered package.
Marking a departure from the bulky and bland appearance of typical external optical drives, the Extreme Slim External DVD-RW continues the emphasis placed by ASUS on innovative design. The extremely thin and compact squared form factor offers a refreshing take on this class of accessory, revitalizing the work and play spaces of PC users with a fun, easy to carry device.
It makes optical media accessible and effortless, fitting easily into any bag. The Extreme Slim External DVD-RW offers a high degree of portability, with its 14mm profile and lightweight construction. This extends full DVD read and write data and content handling to any Windows PC, being particularly helpful to users of netbooks, as those computers often do not have a built-in optical drive.
Slim and Practical
Despite its compact form factor, the Extreme Slim External DVD-RW delivers a full range of optical media functions and uncompromising reliability. It has DVD and CD read and write with support for every major format. It is constructed with brushed aluminium throughout, lending the device a sleek, stylish look.
To complement its compactness and high degree of portability, the Extreme Slim External DVD-RW uses a USB 2.0 interface that works with any Windows PC through instant plug and play. No drivers or installation are required, and the device forgoes a clutter-causing power adapter. It gets power directly from the PC through the included USB cable, making it easy to use on the go even in environments where space is at a premium.
