Stopped working after 3 months

Smittles, targus.com
23 September 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: worked great for 3 months
  • Cons: stopped working after 3 months

  • Summary: This item is ok if you don't transport it ever, don't let your kids near this, springs break easily. Invest your money wisely, be careful if buying it used.

  • Summary: This was a great dvd drive till it completely stopped working after just 2 weeks. Even a brand new DVD would no longer play in it. Very poorly made.

"the biggest rip off since the pet rock"

  • Pros: nothing whatsoever.
  • Cons: the software does not work. to get the device to operate, you must buy the nero 10 software at 79.99! don't waste your time money or energy! buy a different companies device!

Great for the Price

Amatuer author, Amazon

  • Summary: The Targus external drive is awesome! It runs CDs when I need 'em, sounds reasonably quiet, doesn't break the bank, and even has a little cord that tucks underneath when you need to plug it into the computer.
