I spend a lot of time on my computer and most of that time is spent burning dvd's. My hobby is taking family picuters and creataing movies set to music. It is all for fun and for family. It has become a passion of mine.
I love my Mac computer and the dvd burner is great but I really wanted an extra dvd burner because when I create these dvd's I like to make copies of them. I think all of my complaining (which was really a hint to my kids) worked and last Christmas i received this TDK dvd buner.
This is one of th best additons I have added to my computer. The speed on this is great. I can copy a movie that I have created in about 1/2 hour. It really does make it easier to copy dvd's when you have two. I don't have to copy it to my hard drive and then copy on a blank dvd. I can now just copy from one dvd to the other.
I didn't give this a high rating for porability because it is on the larger side and a little bit awkward. I don't think this particular model was made to be portable and since that wasn't my intention it doesn't bother me at all.
If you are looking for an extra dvd burner this is a great little machine. I don't know the price because it was a gift but if I know my kids it wasn't terribly expensive LOL!
