    A bit expensive to go with most netbooks (not that that's a complaint - it will presumably cost more to manufacture and equally R&D probably wasn't all that cheap), but certainly perfect for the ultra-portables without optical readers.

    Hmmm. Good idea. And yeah, there's a price premium but not an insurmountable one. I don't need one, but if I did, the price sure wouldn't be much of an obstacle. In fact, it's priced cleverly .... high enough to ensure a god return but not high enough to put off those that really want/need one.

    Re: News - Pioneer announces world's most compact DVD writer

    Is it reasonable to assume that its USB powered? I've not bought an external optical storage since a Yamaha 4x CD-ROM so I am not sure if USB can power them, but I've come across more than one device where the power converter is bulkier than the device itself.

    You can get USB powered drives yeah. I've got a DVDRW at work, though it does require 2 USB cables to supply that little bit more juice (1 might be sufficient, and the 2nd just there to make sure, like the 2.5" Icyboxes have).

    Looks like it will go with my netbook nicely. Might even fit in the netbook sleeve
