Summary: MBP late '97, 2.6 Ghz. Initially this drive worked great. Light, thin and fast. It requires a Y-cable for working with this MBP. I go on the road for the winter and it no longer works. Online support is very poor. Firmware upgrade protocols fail and lock up the computer.
Pros: Light, thin and fast.... when it works.
Cons: Where it counts, out on the road it stops reading discs. They show up in the finder but the drive reports there is no data. Online support is very poor. Firmware upgrade protocols fail and lock up the computer.
Summary: After buying a Obsidian 750D I wanted an external optical as I didn't want to spoil the front of my new case. This little Sammy drive just plugs in via USB with no separate power supply needed, it just works great and has a brushed aluminium finish that matches the 750D perfectly and less cables in your case is always a good thing.
Summary: Not much to say about it. The drive works well, doesn't need external power source and doesn't need drivers. Perfect for laptops without optical drives or for a desktop that doesn't have enough SATA ports or drive bays.
Summary: Dies ist mein erstes externes DVD-Laufwerk für ein Ultrabook und ich bin positiv überrascht! Alles sitzt gut, besteht halt aus Plastik und daher ist es schön leicht! Es wirkt dennoch ziemlich hochwertig und nichts klappert! Perfekt zu dem Preis!
