Summary: My laptop CD drive was having problems and could not read some game disks any more. So the easy thing to do was to get an external drive. I saw this one was on sale and so I got it. For the price its wonderful. I plug it in and there were all ready drivers for it in Windows Vista.
Pros: Quiet, just as fast as my internal drive, not cheap feeling, for the price its perfect!
Summary: This is a great deal for those who need an external drive for installing software on a netbook. Started to build my own from components, but this price could not be beat. I did not need a drive to carry along with the netbook
Pros: Great price. Very fast. Works with netbook and laptop
Summary: Love the fact that it has an external power supply, Just plug into a usb port and go.....,
Pros: Beefy Drive, very sturdy and works great on all my Laptops, 2 using XP and another using Vista.. All recognized the drive immediately after hook up and installed instantly. This drive is exactly what I was looking for. I really had no need for a small lightweight and portable drive. This will pri...
Pros: Cheap good quality dvd burner. cant go wrong with this buy. i assume u already read the specs so i dont need to go through them. run good so far no probs or issue. it dose every thing i want a dvd drive to do. burn dvds/cds and litescribe my image of chioce. and it do it fast.
Summary: This is my first drive that isn't OEM. I normally don't use drives, but as I just bought a M11x, which has no drive, and I need a drive for some work use, I had to buy one. A test for you to om nom nom on: 2 year old CD-R that I burned and haven't used with 18 audio Mp3 files.
Pros: Very fast. Lightscribe. External.
Cons: Doesn't do Blu-Ray. Can't cure cancer. The USB cable is a tad short, but the power cord is, so no worries. A little bit bigger than an internal drive. Drive spin up isn't as quiet as a mouse on the night before Christmas.
Summary: Strange to admit, but the drive arrived with an adult film DVD in it. Assumed to be left by previous owner. This is more of a forewarning to anyone who may be purchasing the device boxed for another individual.
Pros: Fast shipping, clean finish (after you remove the thin plastic), and acceptable burning/reading performance.
Cons: Drive seems to go into an "infinite spin" mode from time to time after burning or reading a disc for a period. Nothing can be read/burned in this time, the light blinks continuously, and the disk cannot be ejected (neither through the button or software-wise through drive managers). Even powering...
Summary: I asked New Egg to get it to Mom fast...they did it like as if they lived next door...THANKS NEW EGG!!! Mom had a happy Mom's Day!!!
Pros: I know PC Hardware faily well, but I know my MOM, and Mom needed a ODD...so I took care of it. I have one of these so I know it is good...so I can only say...time will tell if Mom will need an RMA...I think not though.
Cons: None yet...and if it is...not an Egg issue, it will be just another hardware issue as it CAN happen...test it good before the warranty runs out.
Summary: Running great, wouldn't know it was a refurb. I got the little warranty with it too, to avoid any issues with DOA or a short lifespan - after all, it IS portable and that increases the chance of early failure.
Pros: Does everything it's supposed to, just like a new one
