Combining practicality and aesthetics, this slim external drive encompasses the Scenario-Based Design model, to better address the needs of users, Asus claims. User-friendly software interface allows for disc burning by allowing users to drag-and-drop data into the thumbnail layout when writing documents and media onto a new disc. Drawing power from the computer and with USB 2.0 transmission speeds, data transfers are swift with minimal power consumption. Using power from the USB port of a PC means the SDRW-08D1S-U does not require an additional power adapter. The SDRW-08D1S-U also offers enhanced data protection with Disc Encryption technology, allowing users to passwordprotect an entire disc or partical contents with 128-bit encryption. Furthermore, connection performance between the USB cable and optical drive is increased with the SDRW-08D1S-U integrated Turbo Engine component. Traditionally, computer’s bandwidth slows down conventional optical disc drives while reading or writing data. With Turbo Engine, the SDRW-08D1S-U is able to read and write data at the highest speed.
