Summary: The HP dvd556s isn’t the fastest external DVD burner that we’ve reviewed but it makes up for that in its portability. This unit is ideal for carrying in a backpack along with a netbook or other portable computer that doesn’t have an optical drive. It can also be used as a secondary drive for a computer that already has one installed.

Pros: This device can burn CD and DVDs into multiple formats.
Cons: This DVD burner does not support Windows 7 configurations.
