More than a simple DVD writer device, Samsung ‘s new optical SmartHub is an exciting and innovative product for today’s digital consumers, enabling wireless multimedia streaming to and from your storage devices to your smartphones, tablets and TVs simultaneously.
Pros: Plays dvds and music from cd or dvd in drive to all mobile devices. Watch a movie on your droid, or tablet! Got dvds that arent ripped, play them on the smart hub.
Cons: Doesnt work right out of the box. It seems samsung didnt give it enough press, so the drives sat on the shelves at newegg.com. Took me 2 minutes browsing www.samsungodd.com for the newest firmware, download firmware to a usb thumb drive takes about two minutes, then plug thumb drive into smart hub. The smart hub does the rest once powered on.
Other Thoughts: Doesnt work just on usb power, needs to be plugged into wall wort to work.

Fun toy but some compromises required
Pros: Reads optical and flash media wirelessly
Cons: Connects over WiFi, not Bluetooth
Other Thoughts: I bought this to use with an iPad, so that's the perspective from which I write.

Cons: No instruction manual, sheet of paper or even on the box. A definate "plug and pray" device!
Other Thoughts: I got this via a special deal here on Newegg. I guess it's going to stay in it's box on the shelf, as I can't seem to get it to work fully.
