Amazingly thin and lightweight, the Asus SDRW-08U5S-U External Slimline USB DVD Writer is designed to join you on your travels.

Slim and stylish

The slim silver SDRW-08U5S-U DVD Writer is highly portable, making it ideal for use with your laptop or Ultrabook™. It is only 12 mm thick, and even includes a hidden built-in stand which can be used to save space - simply choose between using your drive horizontally or vertically.

Easy to use

There's no need to spend your time trying to burn discs - the drag-and-burn design of the SDRW-08U5S-U means that you can create discs in only three steps. Simply drag and drop your files and burn them to the disc to back-up and protect your data, whether it's important documents or multimedia.

The speedy 8x DVD writing speed means that you won't need to wait long for your data to be written.

Secure your data

Protect sensitive data from prying eyes thanks to the data encryption features and password control included with the SDRW-08U5S-U. It can also encode file names, meaning only you have access to your information.

A green drive

The SDRW08U5SU uses E-Green, which automatically closes the drive application when you're not using it. This can help to save up to 50% in power consumption, and means that it won't drain your laptop power when you're not using it.

Compatible with Windows and Mac, make the most of your storage space and time with the stunning Asus SDRW-08U5S-U External Slimline USB DVD Writer.
