Works fine.

Aleksandr V., Newegg
7 January 2016
  • Summary: Will keep using with my micro HTPC, few computers that have cases with no 5.25"
  • Pros: Cheap alternative to internal drives. Works fine, not loud. No need for drivers. Reliable so far.
  • Cons: No writing to discs, don't remember last time I needed that though Plastic scratches easily, I don't care. Cable is a bit short.

Great way to play DVD's on the go

Nicholas C., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: I love this external DVD drive. If you want to watch your movies on the go, or even install windows and not want to purchase a internal DVD drive then you will love this product. I have installed windows 7 professional on my computer and it took about an hour.
  • Pros: USB plug and play, no drivers needed. Easy to use and setup. (Note: if you want to play dvds this doesn't play Blue rays)
  • Cons: Doesn't burn DVDs... but I bought a slightly more costly external drive for this exact feature.

Good at what it is designed for

FRANCOIS A., Newegg
9 September 2015
  • Summary: Thinking of this item, it is just designed for notebooks or laptops without CD/DVD readers. You don't expect to burn when the only power is supplied by the USB port and it is fine, it is not a feature! 2 day shipping, I am so happy yet!
  • Pros: Light, lighter than an old style diskman ... no power supply to manage Small, does not take a lot of space on the desk No tray, you do not have to make space (always not enough) on your desk for the tray to open properly, it opens by the top Small cable, not lost in how to manag a too long cable,...

Works well

Ethan J., Newegg
15 January 2015
  • Summary: This thing is pretty sweet. Yeah it's a little noisy and it's not exactly lightning fast. But lets be honest, it's operating a on USB 2.0.. For $15 as well.. This thing is great. Perfect for small builds with no room for a CD-Drive (that's what I ran into).
  • Pros: Works well with a simple USB 2.0
  • Cons: Noisy Slow

Felton M., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: Thought maybe it was my lack of knowledge so I waited until I visited my son who is a computer tecvh for a large national CPA firm. He tried to get it to work without success and finally told me there was something wrong with it .
  • Pros: None-it didn't work
  • Cons: Wouldn't work with windows 8.1.

Good external dvd drive

Sze C., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Summary: Overall, decent drive for the price. There was a newegg discount when I purchased this, which is part of the reason for getting this one.
  • Pros: Decent external dvd drive size, not heavy, works with most of my dvd disks. Great for desktop builds that do not have internal drives like mine, since I built a mini-itx gaming rig.
  • Cons: The cover that opens does not seem to have good quality, but this is an inexpensive drive. The USB cable holder on the bottom of the drive is angled 90 degrees, which is a bit rough to place the cable in, will be a tight fit as well.

Nice Little Drive

Charlie G., Newegg
24 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought this from Newegg's e-B-a-y store. I would like to see purchases on that site become part of my Newegg account on the main site.
  • Pros: Inexpensive at 14.99 and does what it's supposed to do. A single USB connection is all that is needed. Most others I looked at needed two.
  • Cons: Like others, the 3 or 4" USB cable is kind of absurd. I think the mfg was thinking the only use would be with it lying on a table directly beside a laptop computer. I solved the issue with a USB extension I have. Not crazy about having to slide a button to the side to open it and a mechanical dra...
