Excerpt: Purchased to serve as an external drive for those rare occasions when needed (software installation), etc. Works perfectly as intended. Only minor issue is the design makes it a little difficult to push the eject button. The unit is very light and the protruding top makes is a necessity to use two hands, one to hold it steady, the other to reach the button.
Excerpt: Easier to install than I thought. Didn't need to use the installation CD at all. A basic unit that's compact and draws power from the USB cable so it's simple to hook up. Can't attest to long-term reliability as I've only had it for a week, but it worked first time out.
Excerpt: I purchased this drive with my new iMac. It was recommend to me by my B&H sales representative. Plug and play, great price and works perfectly so far. I have not burned anything yet, but I have installed my photo software and put several CDs on iTunes. The small footprint works so well with my small desk area. Thanks again for the recommendation B&H!
