Slim is good, especially when you’re already lugging around a laptop.  NU’s EBC100 is apparently the World’s slimmest and lightest external Blu-ray player.  It measures just 17.6mm thick and in addition to playing back hi-def discs it can also burn DVDs at 8x.  No external power source is needed as it draws juice from USB, which makes it all the more portable.

Update: Amex Digital’s external Blu-ray player and DVD burner is just 16mm thick.  No word on the weight, though.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
