Lite-On eTAU108 DVD-Writer Review

2 August 2010
  • Conclusion: I’d recommend the Lite-On eTAU108 portable drive to any netbook owner looking for a small, lightweight, re-writable DVD drive to use on the go. Being powered by just a USB port, it makes a perfect travel companion, as there’s no need for any additional plugs to go with it for power.

Expert Review

29 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Last but not least, the support for Book type and overburning with CD-R discs could offer greater compatibility for your discs as well as worry-free burning of large files on your CD-Rs. We would like to see the drive support overburning with DVDs too. The LiteOn eTAU 108 drive can be purchased online for about €50.
  • Pros: Ultra portable and stylish CD/DVD burner, USB- powered, Great writing quality with DVD+R/-R/+RW and CD-R media, Reads/writes DVD-RAM (5x), Supports Book type with DVD+R/+R DL and DVD+RW discs, Supports overburning with CD-R discs
  • Cons: Generally unstable reading of DVD9 discs (DVD-ROM DL and DVD+R/-R DL), Average handling of defected CD-Rs, Weak error correction with defected DVDs, Questionable writing quality with DVD+R DL /-R DL and DVD-RW discs, No overburning with DVD recordables
