Dependable little external burner

11 January 2014
  • Summary: I recommend this Samsung writer 100%. If I had to get another external burner, Samsung would be a brand I'd consider first.
  • Pros: Small, Reliable, cheap (PRICE, not quality), Works on WindowsXP+ and many Linux's I have tried
  • Cons: Quality could be better; Noise (on some) discs

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

Brett in Denver, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • 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 ...

ITs OKay

Heather C., Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: When I got it, it felt kinda felt cheap and I had a hard time getting it to open. After messing with it for a few minutes it finally opened but I don't know what I did any different to get it to finally open other then continue to push the button a dozen or so times. Hope it is not a sign of problems to come. I have made DVD's and CD's and it worked well for the past month or so.

functional despite initial probelms

JB123, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: Keep in mind that this entire product category has fallen to a $30 price range. So I do not view this as a bargain basement item. Especially since this is a name brand Samsung item versus a generic enclosure. The enclosure is light weight glossy plastic on top and sturdier textured plastic underneath. Light weight is probably good if you want to carry this around.

Would not open!

jklw, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this burner because it had 4 out of 5 stars for over 95 reviews. My Macbook burner has been very off and on lately, so I just wanted to get something that would be reliable. When it arrived today, I opened the box, plugged it in, got excited because a little light came on making think - wow, this is going to work, and then got extremely frustrated when I pressed the button to open and it made some funky noises and then did not open. I pressed it again.

Great burner

Isaiah Smalley "Drake", Amazon
8 October 2012
  • Summary: Does exactly what I needed. Burns efficiently without being too loud. It's sleek and small and all around a good deal for what I paid for it. Way easier to burn a bunch of DVDs than to lose all my stuff on external hard drives.
