Samsung SE-218BB: Extrem flacher DVD-Brenner für Ultrabooks & Co.

9 October 2012
  • Summary: Wer ein MacBook Air oder ein anderes ultraportables Notebook ohne integriertes optisches Laufwerk besitzt, muss sich für das Einlesen und Beschreiben von CDs und DVDs auf eine externe Lösung stützen. In einem solchen Fall hilft ein portabler DVD-Brenner wie Samsung SE-218BB. Er ist nicht nur eines der dünnsten und kompaktesten – und rein subjektiv attraktivsten – Geräte seiner Art am Markt, sondern auch noch relativ preisgünstig.
  • Pros: kompakt und schlank, belegt nur einen einzelnen USB-Port
  • Cons: unterstützt keine Blu-rays, hat eine Laufwerks-Lade (keine Slot-In-Technik)
