The ROM Drive
With the package out of the way, it's now time to have a closer look at the drive itself and Lite-On clearly have the "Slim" part down pat with it taking up only slightly more room than a notebook ROM drive would take.
We can see the particular unit we have is burgundy and has a bit of design to it with the black strip running down the right side and around the back, while also have a bit of a round cut-off at one end. It's nice to see that Lite-On hasn't just strapped a ROM drive inside some plain casing.
Looking at the back of the unit, there isn't a whole lot going on here. We have two connectors; the USB one which is needed no matter what, along with the AC adapter plug which is needed in the event that you don't have USB 2.0 ports. It's worth noting that Lite-On said the performance isn't impacted if you don't use the AC adapter, so if the drive powers up with the USB cable then you're ready to go at full speed.
Having a look at the bottom, we can see the standard ROM information here. We have a number of logos along with information on the model, serial number and manufacture date. We can also see in each corner we have four little rubber stoppers that help the drive stay in the one spot when it's sitting on your desk.
Finally, looking at the front of the drive reveals nothing that you probably haven't seen on a notebook ROM drive before. To the right we have the CD logo, while the left side has the RW / DL logo and in the middle we have the DVD one along with an LED and eject button. We also have a small hole here in the event you need to open the drive without power.
