Based on what your telling me, your only looking at external burners.

Ok after googling that model I came up with the following.
It has lightscribe, this feature will alow you to burn images onto the flip side of a CD/DVD, however only special discs that cost like 15$ for packs of 5, the cost is something like that.
It supports double layer DVD's, what these are, are DVD's that support two layers of information effectivly doubling the amout of information that can be placed onto one disc.
It can also burn on typical DVD's and CD's

18x stands for the speed at which it can burn. If a burner burnt at 1x for a 1hour movie, it'd take 1 hour to burn, a 2x burner would take 30 minutes to burn or a in this case 3.3 minutes to burn.

Before you purchase this, I strongly recommend you look into your computers specs. If you don't have USB 2.0 it'll be unbearable slow and your only option would be to get an internal drive or else be stuck with something that underperforms.

Is there anything else you'd like to know?
