Initial Thoughts:

This is no ordinary CD burner.  It may just be a laptop drive in a nice shell, but it's a damn nice shell that is put together splendidly. Design is impeccable with solid, substantial feet that mount nice and tight to keep this unit fully upright. The slimline incoder won't lay down until you tell it too, and when it does, it has a thin silicon anti-vibration pad to keep it nice and comfy.  So, take it with you if you need your burner on  the go. USB and FireWire cables are supplied so you can even impress you MAC friends or enemies.

Even the power plug was nicely designed to take up only one slot on the end of your power strip or wall plug. Everything is very well thought out with regards to design. Plugs are kept small, cables are thin and manageable. Cables are lengthy enough to reach under desks and short enough to fit in the palm of your hand when bundled.
