asus-external-blu-ray-player

Perhaps taking a cue from the PS3 or Xbox 360, Asus has introduced an external Blu-ray combo drive that can stand vertically or lie horizontally.  Better yet, no external power source is needed since the Asus SBC-04D1S-U draws its power from your computer’s USB 2.0 port.  Sure, Blu-ray read times peak at 4.8X, but at least you can burn DVDs/CDs and that blue X, it glows ominously as you watch your flicks, which can either be cool or just straight up distracting.
