The LaCie d2 DVD+/-RW is an external DVD Rewriter that features Lightscribe technology. This means that when using Lightscribe media, once you have finished burning the disc, you can flip it over and use the drive's own laser to burn an image onto the top. It should be noted that complex images can take between 15-30 minutes to burn. There are two versions of this drive, the cheaper uses USB 2.0 while the more expensive uses USB 2.0 and Firewire 400. The drive is made by Samsung (Model: SH-S203N) and housed in a brushed silver aluminum case designed by Neil Poulton and there is no internal fan. Software for Windows and Mac is included and the Reading and Writing of Dual-Layer DVD's is supported(Rewriting of Dual-Layer DVD's is not). Although their products may be pricey, LaCie makes up for it in quality and design.
