The new tray-type DVD writer is a slim portable device, available in seven color choices. Samsung’s new external DVD writer is designed to meet market demand for external DVDs to complement mini-notebook and netbook PCs, a fast growing sector in the PC industry.
The SE-S084B series adopts a single interconnect cable for both data transmission and power supply. The DVD writer is connected through a USB port without the need for a separate power cable. This tray-type slim DVD writer weighs less than a pound (0.4kg) making it an attractive easy to carry portable device.
