Does the trick

Jennifer B., Newegg
8 March 2014
  • Summary: I haven't installed the Super Multi Drive Install Disc at this point. I just plugged it in and tested out playing a DVD. So far so good. I am glad to have it.
  • Pros: Lightweight, easy to use.
  • Cons: If you plan on using the included cable and nothing else, you need two side-by-side USB ports to power this little baby. There is only about 4 inches of cord between the USBs. My only USB ports are on either side of my laptop but I was able to get around this little problem with a port USB expans...

Very Good Versatile Burner

Dennis S., Newegg
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought it for these reasons: 1-Wanted a portable for a netbook & a mini pc 2-Wanted a backup burner 3-Wanted an alternative media player for my TV (via usb) 4-It was a steal at $9.99 So far I've burned & played discs on my main pc, installed linuxmint on a netbook & used it as media player through...
  • Pros: Cheap (I got it for $9.99) Does what it's supposed to. Plays media files via tv's usb (see other thoughts)
  • Cons: It's so light that you have to hold onto the tray to put in or remove discs. *DHL Eggsaver shipping. Slow & it takes days before they even start to track it. Newegg even started a claim for it as lost, but then it finally arrived & I cancelled the replacement.

Works Well

Victoria M., Newegg

  • Summary: Newegg customer service is absolutely fantastic!
  • Pros: It's a dvd player, not much to say. It does what it does, and it does it well. I don't burn or rip, so I can't say how it performs on those tasks.
  • Cons: -None

Nice portable rewriter

Rick F., Newegg
15 December 2013
  • Summary: Came in very handy for computers with no optical drive. Used it to install Windows on my netbook without a problem.
  • Pros: Small Portable USB power I got it for $9.99!
  • Cons: None really. Some knock it for being plastic, but being metal wouldn't improve it any - all DVD/Bluray/CDROM drives have plastic internals.
