Samsung - Poor Customer Service - These drives are Bad New in Box

Summary: This is the second SE-208 Drive I have ordered ... one back in 2012 and this one around October 2013. Both units are bad and cannot read CDs or DVDs. This 2012 was sitting in the box for a year ... wouldn't work at all. So I ordered a second one (my bad for not testing the 2012 unit when it first came). The second unit does not read ... doesn't matter if it is a factory disc or a disc I've burned. I do computer repair ...
Not happy with it. I had 2 both broke after a few use

Summary: My computer does not have a DVD player. My son bougt this one for me as X-mas gift. I used a few time and broke. I thought I didn't use it with causion. I bought another one jsut like this one. But after maybe10 use, it broke again.. it is a bad design. i will never buy it again.
Summary: I purchased this DVD drive early December 2011, and had to send it in for repair in June, now again in September. It's been a different failure each time. The first service order was easy to file, the second has been incredibly frustrating. I no longer trust this particular product.
Summary: I had to get a new optical disc drive. My old 1st generation Mac mini bit ths dust and my new Mac mini doesn't come with one. I did some online comparasion shopping and found this one. It had a lot of favorable reviews on several different websites including here (thanks, "Farscape 1"!). I reserved it from MicroCenter.com and picked it up at one of their local Chicago area stores (that's cool being able to do that BTW).
Summary: I bought this instead of the Apple Super Air Drive because it was significantly cheaper. So far, it works great. I was concerned that it wouldn't work because I only was able to plug it into one USB port due to the design of the MacBook Air, but it works just fine with only one usb port.
