The TDK 440N Indi DVD is a competent multimode drive that's best for burning movies. Those seeking superior overall performance and a bit more polish should turn to the Sony DRU-500AX.
Pricing not available
If you need an external DVD burner and can live with a somewhat rocky installation process, the Backpack's fast 4X performance will serve your purposes.
