LG Electronics GE24NU40 24X External DVD Drive
This model has solid read/write speeds for strong overall performance. The maximum DVD burning speed is 24x though its maximum write speed is only 6x for a dual-layer disc. It can also read DVDs at 8x speed which is great for installing games/programs or just watching movies off a disc. The CD read/write speed maximums are both 48x which is about as good as you'll find. This model has 0.75MB of buffer memory, which helps prevent errors from occurring and keeps your data from being corrupted when you're creating a disc. The sleek design is also simple and easy to use and it works with both PCs and Macs through a USB 2.0 connection. While a USB 3.0 interface would be better, this one is still a great choice for an external DVD burner.
