5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: - No need for wall adapter with USB 3.0 (4.5 Watts compared to USB 2.0 with 2.5 Watts)
- Optional power adapter
- Small/Lightweight plastic
- Easy to install and remove a drive
- Sleek design
- Two screws to hold drive in place
- Windows 8 compatible
- Got it for $17!

Cons: - Mislabeled ON/OFF switch
- Instructions

Other Thoughts: It is not difficult to get the drive out! Simply remove the screws, power it on, eject the tray, turn it off, then pull from the tray. No need for pliers.

The enclosure does not include a face-plate (this was to be expected).

AnyDVD HD 7.3.1.0 seems to scan the Blu-ray disk every 15 seconds (unmounting and mounting each time). This is likely not the enclosure's fault.

3 out of 5 eggsRetracting 8/18 review

Pros: Sleek looking
Easy to install my brand new laptop's Blu-Ray writer (BD-RE) (UJ260)
Windows 7 recognized it immediately
AC Adapter included
Burns all of the media that the BD-RE drive supports (see HWiNFO)

Cons: Difficult to remove ODD once installed, will need pliers.
Instructions are unclear in some spots.
Included USB 3.0 was defective on my unit (had to spend ~$20 incl. S&H to replace it)

Other Thoughts: Just as I thought, the USB 3.0 cable was defective leading to coasters. I would give this product 5-stars, but I cannot overlook the fact that the manufacturer decided to ship their product with such a shoddy cable.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not burn Verbatim Blu-Ray (BR-

Pros: Sleek looking
Easy to install my brand new laptop's Blu-Ray writer (UJ260)
Windows 7 recognized it immediately

Cons: Burns coasters of Verbatim's BD-R's (97457) ("semaphore timeout period has expired" messages).
Burns coasters of Taiyo Yuden DVD-R's (Failed to Write Sectors 1122272 - 1122303 - Reason: The semaphore timeout period has expired.)
Difficult to remove ODD once installed, will need pliers.
Instructions are laughingly unclear: "...and then screw ODD on the enclosure"

Other Thoughts: I purchased this unit from another reseller for the express purpose of burning BD-R backups of my laptop's HDD. I was dismayed that the unit kept burning BD-R and DVD-R coasters. Is it a bad USB 3.0 cable they included in the unit? Disappointed customer here and this will influence my decision when considering products from BYTECC in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality option

Pros: Firstly... USB 3.0 (still rare for external enclosures)
Light weight ABS plastic
Comes with all screws needed
Quick and easy install
Quality USB 3.0 cable
Comes with external power cord just in case
No driver disk/silliness in windows 7

Cons: As mentioned in previous post, the power switch *IS* Mislabeled. (seriously, it takes 2 seconds to figure out I couldn't care less)
Not that it is difficult to figure out inserting the drive but the instructions could maybe use some diagrams for special people.
Possibly would have better "feel" if aluminum
Difficult to remove drive once installed.

Other Thoughts: I have only had it for a day but have been using it non stop with burning/verifying DVD's. I don't have any Bluray disc's laying around to test. I imagine being USB 3.0 that with the added mAH rating most drives should work fine without the external power adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat device with a few small annoyances

Pros: - Drive is easy to install
- USB 3.0
- High quality feeling USB 3.0 cable
- Works with every Slim Drive I installed in it.
- Plays Blu-Ray discs without the power adapter installed when using a high-powered USB port

Cons: - Blue LED is annoying and always on when the device is on
- On/OFF switch inverted (Off=On)
- Difficult to remove drive after installed.
-Only mounted using two screws on one side.

Other Thoughts: If I could have given 4.5 eggs I would have. Functionally, this device is a 5/5. It works with two DVD/RW drives I had lying around and a BD-RE I tried. All drives worked fine without using the included power adapter as long as I was using a powered USB 3.0 port. (Using a Sager NP9150 Laptop) The DC adapter Included is specified for 2000mA @ 5v.

The blue led is annoying and somewhat bright in a dark room, but I usually keep the device powered off unless I need it in order to keep the LED off. Speaking of which--The on/off switch on the back of the device is labeled incorrectly. The Device is 'off' in the 'on' position and vice versa. No big deal--just a little sloppy.

Installed drives are incredibly difficult to remove from the enclosure once installed. Don't plan on using this to swap slim drives frequently. Overall, I would totally buy this item again so long as it remains reliable.
