CCE Reviews take a look at the LiteOn eTDU108 External Slim DVD ROM, an ideal drive for many netbooks:

With netbooks becoming increasing popular, external drives like the eTDU108 will start seeing a demand. Being small, light, and only drawing power solely from a USB cable, the eTDU108 is a very strong product for what it was built for: a portable solution to the missing netbook optical drive.

The access times are faster than the advertised speeds. However, having no external power source and very small size is limiting the reading speeds. The slower results from the DVD and CD reading tests show that drives with a dedicated power source will be faster at the end of the day. But this does not make the eTDU108 an obsolete product, it can still do its job of reading discs perfectly fine. Those looking for a very portable solution to an optical drive should take an in-depth look at the eTDU108.
