PRODUCT COMPOSITION & PICTORIAL (cont'd)



The front of the unit shows off this super fly cool clear bezel. The power light is blue, which will please the modders out there. There's also a headphone jack, volume control, green activity LED, manual eject hole and eject button.



From this angle, you can see the writing at the back of the unit. I really don't like this, but it's not a huge problem. I understand that it helps users find the connection they need quickly if looking at the unit from the top or front, but I still think it's ugly.



There's the power input and switch, USB and Firewire ports (and switch), as well as audio outs. Sadly, there isn't an s-video out like on the Phillips Jack Rabbit external DVD burner. I feel that would have greatly increased the value of this unit. It would be great to hook this baby up to a TV and stereo wherever you please… say in a hotel room during a business trip.



Finally, there's the clear stand. Some people will want to set this burner up vertically, depending on the space available on their desk. Myself, I wouldn't trust it, simply because it will allow a certain amount of movement which would not otherwise be present if the unit was laid horizontally. Movement is bad when burning, mmmmk.
