Hello guys, today we are going to be talking about the best external DVD drive for the Microsoft surface pro 4.
Best External DVD Drive for Surface Pro 4
The Microsoft surface pro 4 is an excellent high-end tablet that can permanently replace a laptop and do more than a laptop ever can. It was launched four years ago and has since been replaced with two of its successors, but not before capturing a large part of the tablet market. Unfortunately, the surface models lack a DVD drive, as is usual in the tablet form factor. This is an issue to some users who uses the surface pro 4 as their primary device. This is where external DVD drives come in, and today we are going to review 5 of those.
1. LG GP60NS50 External Drive
The LG GP60NS50 External Drive is the one that tops our list. Priced at just under 30$, this model comes with a silver variant that really impressed us. It supports an M-DISC, connection to a TV or a photo frame and is compatible with all of the operating systems and form factors.
2. Dell DVD Drive-DW316
Dell is a trusted name in the PC hardware industry because of the durability and efficiency of their products, and this one is no different. It is very thin at just 14mm thickness and has a sleek and compact design. It also comes with a 1-year limited hardware warranty.
3. LG Electronics 8X
This is very premium looking device from LG. It comes in four colors, Black, Gold, Silver, and White. The gold colour variant looks good, and that will definitely be my choice if I were to buy this model. Priced at just under 30 dollars, this checks all the necessary checkboxes for a DVD driver.
4. Roofull External DVD Drive
This is a cheaper option than the LG and also gets the job done efficiently. It supports the plug and play technology, which means that you can easily connect this device using a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port to any device from any manufacturer and not just your surface pro 4. You will need to connect the device’s power cord to another USB port for the drive to work.
5. LG Super Multi Ultra Slim Portable DVD
As the lengthy name suggests, this ultra-thin device from LG is only 14mm thick and has a high transfer rate up to 480Mbits/s and comes with a USB 2.0 interface which also supports the latest USB 3.0 technology. It also supports an M-DISC or Millennial Disc. Priced at just under 30 dollars, this device can be a great attachment to your Surface.
Personally, I would recommend you to buy the LG GP60NS50 drive. It has more features than the rest of the models and has a reasonable price. You can find the products link in table.
Will the power from my Surface pro 4 (through the usb cable) be enough to run all of the above models? Also, all of the above state they have usb2.0, but the surface pro 4 has a usb 3.0. Will that not be a problem?
