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.
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."
