I am looking for a slim, portable DVD burner and have the choice locally between the LG GP08LU10 and the LiteOn eSAU208. They seem to spec. out quite closely, and was wondering if there were any other factors, like reliability or support, that I should consider before making a purchase. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

i earlier today ordered the gsa e50l which is identical to the lg drive you mentioned
i chose this drive as the top has the same finnish as the sammy, Looks Good together
i had first wanted a slim bus powered plextor but nowhere has stock of the model i wanted
i look forward to receiving the lg late next week

I am assuming tha you have a black NC10?

Well, I bought the LIteOn drive yesterday. It reads discs with power from just one of the USB ports. For those that care, its burgundy and black, but they make it in white if you want to match it to your white NC10.

I’ve got the white LG without lite scribe and it has never failed on any of my netbooks. Ha! Shame my Sammy’s black…December 29, 2008 at 9:11 pm #177412rallysnapperMember
I’ve just bought the lighton external drive you mention so far its running well,you get nero 7 burning software,lightscribe software,drive stand, and if needed power plug. My drive is the red one a nice colour to go with the white sammy NC10. I got the burner from Microdirect in manchester. cost Â£46. If you are looking on microdirects website do NOT buy the samsung burner at the same price as the liteon, I did and it does not run on the sammy netbook.December 29, 2008 at 9:19 pm #177410AlfiharParticipant

Are you referring to this optical drive?
MicroDirect: Samsung DVD RW S084B/RSBN
As that’s the one I bought from MicroDirect and it’s been working perfectly with my NC10.
EDIT: Odd I can’t get the link to work, its the Black Slimline Samsung drive Â£49.11 inc vat.December 30, 2008 at 4:31 pm #177413rallysnapperMember
Yes thats the one, I do not know why the Samsung drive would not play for me and for some reason I had a mini nightmare trying to load the bundled nero software. Anyhow went back and Microdirect swapped it for the Liteon burner and everything went smoothly.December 30, 2008 at 6:41 pm #177414andydajoMember
I’ve got the White LG one, Â£47ish from PCWorld. Matches the White Sammy and runs happily from one USB cable.
