Summary: Purchased this drive at the same time with my Aspire One. The targus is small, quiet and performs as advertised. I especially like the rubberized coating, keeps it from sliding around and I imagine offers a little more protection if knocked or dropped.
Summary: While this drive did exactly what I intended it to do, it just didn't do it enough. Often times when it is plugged into my computer and a disc is inserted, it just refuses to play my movie/game/cd. Very rarely it will actually play anything.
Summary: I purchased this item about a year ago and while I'm not super fond of the two cables and the way they sit kinda horizontal to each other out of the ports, I know that it allows the DVD-player to not need external power and I figured, okay fine it does its job, no problem.
Summary: I bought the Targus PADVD010U to load software onto an ACER Net Book. The device was plug and play with no problems at all. Seems to be well made and the wires/cables seem substantial and sturdy.
Summary: I bought this item and it didn't work right out of the box. I returned it and got a replacement - it worked great for about 6 weeks, used only about a dozen times. It no longer works and the return period has expired. I do not recommend this product, seems to have significant quality issues.
Summary: This drive has very few pros and cons. For a positive aspect, it is small and light. For a negative aspect... it doesn't work. At least not for me. It was able to read four or five CDs, but nothing since.
Summary: I've been using this drive for about a month and so far it has functioned flawlessly. It's light and slim enough to carry in my briefcase and the added feature of not needing an AC adapter is noteworthy. In sum, highly recommended.
