I was warned against USB-powered burners when I went looking last year, so I bought an enclosure and stuck an IDE burner I had lying around in it.

The thing is huge though. Let us know how this burner works out for you.

Heh... I forgot to give my traditional "I'm buying one of these this week, so wait a couple of weeks and it'll be on sale for half the price...." warnings when I bought this.... ;)

NCIX.com - Buy Samsung SE-S224Q/AMBN 22X External DVD Writer W/ Lightscribe USB 2.0 - SE-S224Q/AMBN In Canada.

Only 37 left at that price when I last checked.

Burner works well. Not so sure about the lightscribe function though... mine seems to have a repeatable blur issue on text at the outer edges.

Will have to keep this in mind for any folks who are looking for a burner without a mess of cables.
