Conclusion: The eNAU608 is a great choice for anyone looking for a compact and lightweight DVD writer. Along with a good looking, customizable design, it offers a long list of features as well as some of the fastest reading and writing speeds available on a portable drive. The eNAU608 performed relatively well when writing to DVD+R and DVD-R media. In our tests, the drive took about 11 minutes to burn an entire 4.7GB DVD.

Summary: LITE-ONeNAU608 delivers performance on par with similar drives on the market. Similar drives, however, can be found on the net for around $35 the cheapest we were able to find the eNAU608 for at the time of publication for is $47. This means the yes, there are cheaper options are available so what you essentially paying for is looks. The USB cables could also be longer as the secondary power cable is actually longer than the main cable.
Lite-On eNAU608 External Slim USB DVD/CD Writer Review
14 March 2011
Summary: Final Thoughts
This being one of the first Lite-On products we’ve been able to review we are very impressed. This drives does everything it is supposed to do, so if you purchase it you will not be disappointed. This drive does offer a little bit more than other similar drives. First off it does have the changeable top covers, there are 4 doubled sided covers included and you can print your own as well.
Pros: Sleek and slim design, Changeable top cover, LabelTag Technology
Excerpt: It's nearly impossible to make a DVD burner stand out from the pack these days, but Lite-On comes close with its portable Lite-On eNAU608 USB 2.0 burner. The unit is small and light, and supports personalization via a graphics insert on the top of the drive. Even better, the drive supports both LightScribe and LabelTag - two laser-etching technologies that let you label your discs without resorting to cumbersome, unbalancing labels or a disc printer.
Summary: Det er jo litt pussig, men ellers er det snakk om en helt ordinær dvd-brenner. Den kobles til pc-en med USB og kan for eksempel brukes sammen med en minibærbar pc uten optisk stasjon. Brenneren er ganske kompakt, men den mekaniske kvaliteten er ikke imponerende. Den klarer seg uten ekstern strømforsyning siden den trekker strøm direkte fra USB-porten. Det er ikke nødvendig å installere drivere før den kan brukes.
