Excerpt: The HP dvd556s multiformat DVD writer is ideal for small, portable computers like Netbooks that often don’t include an optical drive. Though its diminutive size and weight suggest traveling, it’s also terrific for less mobile computers that might have a less versatile CD/DVD burner or for those who need a second drive. This is a remarkably versatile little external DVD burner that’s priced well within range of just about any consumer.
Pros: This device can burn CD and DVDs into multiple formats.
Cons: This DVD burner does not support Windows 7 configurations.
