Lite-On IT got its start in 1995 when its parent company, Lite-On Technology, gathered a group of scientists and engineers to start an optical storage research and manufacturing business. Lite-On Technology quickly established itself as Taiwan’s largest CD-ROM drive manufacturer and by 1999 the business had spun off into a separate company, Lite-On IT. Since then, Lite-On IT has continued to grow. By working closely with companies like BenQ and Philips, they've expanded into the consumer and automotive electronics markets, becoming the world's second largest ODD manufacturer.
With the growing popularity of ultrabooks and tablets, Lite-On has set its sights on the portable optical drive market. Over the last few years, the company has introduced a number of external slim DVD writers. One of the latest additions to this line is the eNAU708. This stylish and compact drive is capable of 8x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW, 6x DVD±R DL and 5x DVD-RAM writing speeds and a maximum DVD read speed of 8x. The eNAU708 is also USB powered and features support for Lite-On's various SMART technologies. To top it all off, the drive comes with Nero Essentials as well as Lite-On's own MyDisk Suite which includes applications for the PC, iPad and iPhone.
Needless to say, this is only a taste of what the eNAU708 has to offer.
