5 out of 5 eggsNot bad!

Pros: Reads faster than the last USB powered optical drive that I've used. Sounds and performs almost as fast as an internal drive!

Cons: Haven't noticed any Cons yet.

Other Thoughts: Have only used it to install windows 7 so far. Haven't tried writing yet, and I hope it lasts a long time.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT work with the Surface Pro 3

Pros: Good cord length

Cons: As other reviewers have said this device draws more power from the USB port than the standard allows. When used with the surface this led to a "power surge on the usb hub". The drive would start to spin up and then abruptly stop with the error displayed. As others have said this overdraw of power is dangerous and can lead to damage of the computer.

Other Thoughts: Went with the EBAU108 which works great with the SP3

2 out of 5 eggsArrived DOA

Pros: Attractive looks
Included USB cable

Cons: Unit would not power on

Other Thoughts: This unit arrived DOA. You will read some descriptors pointing out how in the past it was sold with a two-to-one USB cable to provide additional power to the unit. The unit as is sold now arrived with a one-to-one cable and the unit did not power on.

I attempted to power on the unit attaching it to a 2.1amp charger, and it still would not power on.

I've had good experiences with LG in the past, but this was a disappointment.

If the unit did actually work and merely required the two-to-one cable, it is inexcusable to sell the product without it, but I cannot determine this.

5 out of 5 eggsWho needs a 5.25" optical drive now?

Pros: - Comes with everything you need to run on any computer with USB
- Cheap
- Installed Windows 8.1 pro fine
- doesn't need a power adapter
- UEFI bios boots off it no problems
- LG quality

Cons: - Slower than an internal drive
- No blue ray

Other Thoughts: In these modern times, a fast internet connection is more important than having an always-mounted internal optical drive. I have tried some of my old CD-rs and DVDs in this drive and it reads them just fine.

No more 5.25" drives for me.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the greatest

Pros: Cheap. Compact and portable.

Cons: Seems pretty flimsy. Upon arrival could not get it to work, even trying different cables. Only after I kind of tugged on the USB cable at the point where it enters the drive unit, did I manage to get it to work. This seems to suggest the connection or internals are a not entirely solid, as I would not expect the "connection" to be so sensitive to moving the cable. This does not bode well for the long-term viability of the unit, I fear.
