Good Stuff

Alan J., Newegg
25 April 2015
  • Summary: Bought this when I took the optical drive out of my laptop (as I hardly used it since Netflix) and replaced it with a BU HDD (mechanical, to go with the main SSD). I still occasionally need a CD DVD drive and this does the trick.
  • Pros: Slim, fast enough. Price was right.
  • Cons: M discs are expensive and hard to find.

Not bad!

  • Summary: Have only used it to install windows 7 so far. Haven't tried writing yet, and I hope it lasts a long time.
  • Pros: Reads faster than the last USB powered optical drive that I've used. Sounds and performs almost as fast as an internal drive!
  • Cons: Haven't noticed any Cons yet.

  • Cons: As other reviewers have said this device draws more power from the USB port than the standard allows. When used with the surface this led to a "power surge on the usb hub". The drive would start to spin up and then abruptly stop with the error displayed. As others have said this overdraw of power...
