Worked Flawlessly

  • Summary: Have three different machines, 2 win 7s and an XP. Worked without a hitch on all three. I use the XP to copy and burn DVDs, the 7s t burn - and the drives has worked with no problems. I like the fact that it has only one USB cable whereas the one it replaced had two and could be a hassle.

  • Summary: I wanted an external DVD drive for my ultrabook, this was one of the cheapest options with good reviews, so I bought it. It is exactly what you would expect from a DVD drive. It is thin, light, works with both USB2.0 and USB3.0 with Windows 8.
  • Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality

Does NOT work on Chromebooks...no matter what the questions/answers say!

Kindle Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This does NOT work on the HP Chromebook with Windows 8.1 or on the Acer 720P Chromebook. Save yourself the trouble of reading all the questions to see if it will work. This is the second external DVD writer I have purchased. The other was a different brand but behaved exactly the same.

  • Summary: So people are not expecting miracles for the value of the device. Yes, dependent on the DVD. It may get a little load when reading/spinning, etc. But it is a small device. And I do currently have it very close to where I'm at.
  • Pros: Fast, and on time shipment. Product was intact and not damaged. And worked right out of the box. Used on newer Windows 8.1 based tablet PC. And older laptop used as a desktop. And running Linux (obviously the Linux as to have the right driver/software). But the product did come with CD and softwa...
  • Cons: None for what I needed/expected. But see "Other Thoughts" for other info.

Disgusted!!

E. Kinane, Amazon
27 June 2015
  • Summary: Worked once great...then came the heartache. It says it's making a dvd...says it completes the dvd...but Gee I can't play the dvd. The software is not all that complete either....The program I received did not contain the video portion in the menu...just directed me to purchase more software.

Does not come with DVD Player software

Sreenadh S. Jonnavithula, Amazon

  • Summary: Drive appears to function well enough, but my peeve is: it says it comes with software, but does not include a DVD player!! I guess this is a feature, not a bug, but BUYER BEWARE .. who'd buy a DVD drive that doesn't let you watch movies??
