Eggcellent

Philip S., Newegg

  • Summary: When you close the drive it clicks into place using an interference fit design... This is why the lower plastic rim bumps up against the drive tray when closing it. ..don't expect an external optical drive to transfer data as quickly as a fast usb drive or hard drive.
  • Pros: Works flawlessly as a boot drive for my laptop. This model uses an external power supply rather than usb power. Quality solid metal enclosure is very sturdy! Interesting non slip rubber "feet" which extend the entire length of the drive.
  • Cons: Somewhat louder than I expected. The small power brick is rather light and plastic-y, I think They would have done better to incorporate the power brick into the plug, or the drive enclosure itself, rather than have it in the middle of the cable.

Don't Think Twice

  • Summary: This great product comes in other colors. I wish it came in a hot pink or hotrod red.
  • Pros: You know when you buy Sony you buy with confidence. The stylish look of this drive and the performance are worth the price. With an actual power source, this drive offers stability and reliability that most slim drives lack. Also the metal enclosure of the drive (the shell) provides the sturdines...
  • Cons: From time to time the tray might sound like it is jammed but as far as performance it doesn't affect it

  • Pros: I've used and abused this drive. When writing, it works as if I was using a regular SATA optical drive. No complaints from me.
  • Cons: Burns DVD's, but it doesn't actually set them on fire. I'm disappointed.
