4 out of 5 eggsOK For Limited Use

Pros: If you are doing a build without an optical drive this is a good solution for light work when you have to use a CD or DVD. I'd be nervous if I were relying on it for a big project (e.g., burning 100s of disk to a cloud storage solution).

Cons: The supplied cord is unusably short and the drive is finicky with other USB cords. I had success with a robust one that had a ferrite core; a couple of other thinner ones without it wouldn't work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking with no issues

Pros: Functional with no issues.

Cons: standard laptop speed drive [may be too slow for some]

Other Thoughts: I don't have much to say on the drive, but it has performed exactly the way I had expected and I've had no issues with it. I use with my computer case that has no drive, I do not travel with it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Supports fast error skip
Nice price.

Cons: Cable is literally like 4 inches long.

Other Thoughts: Unless your computer is on your desk AND the USB port is very near the bottom, you will need to include a decent length mini USB cable.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great under ESXi 5.5

Pros: Bought this for installing VmWare ESXi on a few boxes that were lacking an optical drive. ESXi can be a little picky but I had no issues detecting this drive.

This drive has since migrated to my laptop bag and works great with my Dell XPS 12 convertible tablet. There have been no power issues with the one USB connection.

Small and slim compared to older models of external optical drives.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Very please with this purchase. We have two other brands sitting around here that are hit of miss with a few of our tests.

USB cable was a little short so I swapped it out with one already laying around here.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with the Surface Pro 3

Pros: Works great with the Surface Pro 3. Does not overdraw power from the USB port like some other drives do.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as described!

Pros: -Super slim
-Reliable reading and writing
-Price is reasonable

Cons: -Slow-ish burning, but this is to be expected from a device with such a low profile. I'll take slow and reliable over a fast drive that generates coasters.

Other Thoughts: This external DVD-writer was perfect for what I needed. I have a mini laptop with no disc drive, and this did the trick for all of the CDs and DVDs I wanted to read and burn.
