Summary: first of all, it's bigger than it looks in the photo but my biggest complaint is the cable that comes with it. I wanted to use this with my little Zenbook, which has one usb port on each side. Well, the cable that comes with this DVD, which requires the use of TWO usb ports, is a single Y cable and the Y is not long enough to go to both sides of my little 11" Zenbook, so I can't use it. REally disappointed.
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.
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.
Summary: This product is decent. It performs well. I have been able to read and write CDs, and play a DVD. I have not tired burning a DVD yet. The reason why I give this product 3-stars is because when it arrived, the tray would not eject. The drive would make a horrible grinding noise, and never eject the tray. I was going to return it, and maybe buy an alternative. However, for some reason, I picked the drive up to move it to another table.
Summary: I have a ultra laptop that does not have room for a DVD Drive. This drive does not require DC power. However, it does require two USB ports (1 for electricity and 1 for data). The drive works great but is quite slow.
Summary: Funktional - jedoch auf meinen XP-Rechnern wurde das Gerät nicht erkannt - wollte damit defekte DVD-Laufwerke ersetzen. Die Klappe ist zwar wacklig und das Betriebsgeräusch nicht leise - stört jedoch nicht, da ich den Brenner nicht zum Filme-Gucken einsetze.
Summary: Bisher hab ich noch keine wirklichen Probleme mit dem Gerät. Allerdings ist es sehr billig verbaut. Ein häufiger Gebrauch macht dem entsprechend auch wenig Spaß. Zum importieren/konverteiren und brennen absolut in Ordnung, für mehr reicht es aber auch nicht...
