furthermore, a "tv linkable" dvd drive is not much of a feature. unless youre prone to renting redbox movies without having a dvd player.. then this is great what a coincidence you can play your rental now.
otherwise if your tv can support these dvd external drives then it can support a usb thumbdrive with movies on it.... so... yea, im not sure why a dumb optical disc would be a feature creep
I have always had bad luck with the external dvd drives that are just laptop drives in an external enclosure... like this one seems to be. (Ones that slide on rails like on a laptop).
When I bought my Eee PC 1000H many moons ago (wow netbooks were the thing 6 years ago? time flies!) I needed a drive with it to load things, so I picked up a Lite-on DVD *clamshell* external burner... and let me tell you that thing has been amazing. I am still using it to this day, where the Eee just sits in my closet collecting dust.
Now I use my optical drive less and less I plan on popping the DVD burner out of my Thinkpad and using it as a hard drive bay with the enclosure adapter I bought - and I'll just keep the clamshell external in my bag in case I need it while I'm out.
