SHM-165P6S Dual Layer DVD Writer

Strengths: Easy installation, Small size, good burning speed, DVD-RAM

Weakness: Plastic external case, sometime noisy

I bought it from local Officedepot three months ago. Overall it is a good external burner. It is quite to setup. You can place it horizontally or vertically with the attached holder. It support DVD-RAM disc with was easy for daily backup for small file. You can just drag and drop on the DVD-RAM and it will be function as hard drive.

Very Good for the Price

Strengths: It does a great job in burning the DVDs/ Nero software

Weakness: None encountered so far.

It does a great job in burning movies to the DVD, it burnt the 4.3b DVD disc in around 6 mins. and the dual layer (7.9gb) in 11mins. it does not have the lightscribe feature(of course i do not care about this), it's well worth the money. paid around $40 after rebate.

I've not tried all the capabilities provide by this portable unit, but my quick review of the...

Nice product

Strengths: Easy to use, usb connection

Weakness: A little bit noisy

I bought a Lite-on SHM-165P6SX external DVD burner from a local store. It is quite easy to install and use both software and hardware. I tested both CD and DVD burning, which work very well, and the speed is fast. I also like its outside style. An attached holder enables me to horizontally or vertically place it according to space available. But it would be better if the size could be smaller. I...
