Summary: It works as it is supposed to. I avoid putting dvd's or cd's into my computer's narrow slot for fear that any stickers, such as those on library cd's, will cause them to get stuck inside, as happened to my car's cd player. This cannot happen with this unit.
Summary: I ordered a brand new DVD-ROM. However, the one that I received was a used one with broken package. There was even a CD inside it that shows the last user has forgotten to take it. I do NOT recommend this seller AT ALL.
Summary: I have a newer laptop now, but I originally bought this for my netbook and really liked it. It seemed a bit cheap and easily breakable, but I never had any problems with it. I also never used it a whole lot either so...
Summary: The price was right at the time but since that time the product has gone up therefore when I need another I will be searching for the best price. The product is serving my purpose right now. This should be three (3) stars not four (4))
Summary: While this was packaged as brand new I am unsure if it was. It works ok but the entire top of it has deep scratches - it was not in good condition. I had a project and needed to use it so I kept it but I was very disappointed.
Summary: This product was to replace a similar drive that had lasted 3+ years. The Targus drive just stopped reading and writing, but the drive letter does still show up. It's like the laser or the motor servo died. Far too short a life-span.
