Brilliant product but installation is difficult and time consuming

Excerpt: The product works well as an external CD/DVD reader and writer. There is no manual on the disc, only a link to an expired website with a for sale notice on it. The Samsung site has a manual on it, but it is full of information of no use to a user - mainly compliance.
Excerpt: The sales info implied that this device can be accessed wirelessly via pc, android and iOS devices. It can, but you have to change your wireless connection to it, thereby losing your internet connection.
Excerpt: This is my second review it seems like Scan will only publish good reviews and not truthful ones, The writer is rubbish it will only burn at 2 speed with Nero on a machine running any version of Windows.
Excerpt: As a stand alone USB optical drive it works. + Not expensive - It's noisy and slow. - Audio discs have a tendency to start at track 2. As for the other 'features' Don't even think about it. Just don't that's all.
Excerpt: The drive looks great, and is much cheaper than Apples super drive, unfortunately you can't install the software to use it wirelessly on a macbook pro (or Macbook Air), so it just becomes a USB disk drive, and it isn't the highest speed USB disk drive i have ever seen due to only being USB 2.0.
Excerpt: I'm only using the item as a usb dvd drive, but it's nice to think that the device offers additional features I might use in the future. Difficult to use fully unless your desktop pc is wifi rather than LAN.
