I am going to be reviewing the HP slim DVD burner. Hewlett Packard always Prodi mentally makes quality computer related peripherals. Pros: This is an affordable product! Attractive Design Smooth booting speed- nice cord quality Cons: It is lacking in brand quality, fell off my table at Starbucks when someone hit it with their bag and left a nice size dent in the side of the unit *Loudness could be improved, and the overall unit runs warm Would I recommend yes, only if your on a budget. There are far better and more versatile products out their for around the same price.
