Portable dvd writer

I am looking to buy a portable dvd writer for my laptop. I would prefer one that could be powered via the laptop if possible. Any recos. Thanks

I'm looking, too; apparently the HP dvd300e and the Sony DRX500UL are the ones to look out for (check out the American version of pc advisor - I think its pcworld.com -'s website for a top 10).

Good luck!

Oh, yeah... The new Freecom models come with rechargeable batteries; I *think* if you connect them via PCMCIA, they do work from the laptop itself. I'm not too sure, though... check it out at click here.

The Sony gets best marks but doesn't solve the power issue. Trying to find a review of the Freecom Traveller Plus is like looking for the proverbial needle....

Try click here. Even if they don't have a review of the specific model you're looking for, they might have some other freecom reviews to give you an idea.

Any suggestions of where to find a burner at a good price? My budget is kinda tight, and I could do with some advice.

Hi ar333

Hope u got note re stores.

If cash is tight (and when isn't it) u might review NEC 1300 when it arrives next month, or NEC 1000 and 1100 get good reviews (£120 - £175). Also Ricoh MP5125 is in this band.

Next band includes Pioneer AO5/AO4 and HP. Then the Sony 500.

Hope this helps - also try dvdrhelp.com for reviews too
