The best sales pitch for your gadget instead of all those specs:


"Need to reimage laptop/netbook which does not have CD/DVD? - Use this external drive and one of the imaging tools (e.g. Acronis/Clonzilla) and you'll be fine .... :-)

Tempted. But they're about that delivered from Aliexpress. Busy ditching all my internal drives - haven't used optical media in years (5?). Having one that can easily plug in would be somewhat comforting. But wonder what the odds are of actually ever using it...
