Haven't seen this product before, but I wouldn't bother. If you just need the ability but not the portability, get an external 16x DVD Dual Layer burner from LaCie w/LightScribe for the same price. Comes with Roxio Toast Titanium, and it's FireWire. Flip the disc over and burn yourself an image on to the label side. I ordered one three weeks ago, it should be here next week (backorder).

Definitely go with what Ian said, in my opinion. Don't bother spending your money upgrading and going through the long process...Just get an external drive instead, somtimes even cheaper, and you can have more power than you can want, also for a nicer price.
