The Drive
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

SE-S084 is very small as it is based on a slim optical unit originally developed for laptops, not on a unit targeted to desktops. It measures ¾” x 5 ½” x 6 3/16” (1.9 cm x 14.1 cm x 15.7 cm) (H x W x D) while a typical desktop internal unit measures 1 ½” x 5 ¾” x 6 11/16” (4.0 cm x 14.5 cm x 17.0 cm). On Figures 3 and 4 we compare SE-S084 to a typical desktop internal DVD writer.
