This LG 8X USB 2.0 ultra slim portable external DVD writer is down to $19.72 on Amazon. It normally sells for $25. This price is a match for a deal we saw in mid-December and Black Friday weekend.

If you've bought a laptop at any point over the last few years, you know they no longer come with optic drives. If you've decided you need one, this would be the perfect solution. An external drive like this would be a great way to make music mixes for a long road trip so you don't have to listen to the radio, or to make some DVDs to watch at home with your favorite digital movie downloads. It's useful for installing software and operating system drivers, too.

Features include:

  • 14mm Height Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer Drive
  • USB 2.0 interface (up to 480Mbits/s, USB 3.0 Compatible)
  • Max 8x DVDR Write Speed
  • Max 24x CD Write Speed

The drive has 4 stars based on more than 2,700 user reviews.
