    I bought an Asus Netbook for a gift on Christmas, and I would like to chase down an external dvd r/wr for it as well. Im trying to stay in the $75 and less category and there are a ton of options. I dont even know where to begin. Any recommendations?

    We have a couple at work, they use 2 USB cables, one is power, the other is data. Kinda cool, no need to haul around a power adapter and shit. It's thin and compact too.

    So i google what you both wrote and came up with this which seems to fall right in my price range and get favorable reviews. Anyone else have any thoughts?

    I got a Samsung for around $50-something... never had any trouble with it.
