5 out of 5 eggsGood Dvd Burner

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Fast and reliable Dvd burning, Small size compact so you can sit it almost anywhere when not using.

Cons: it takes up 2 usb ports, not really a problem if you do not leave it connected when you are not using it.

A slight problem with putting a disc in the tray, it sometimes is slightly difficult inserting a disc as it feels as if the tray would break, but i use it all the time and it always gives great results.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this as a drive to burn data because I purchased a hard drive caddy that goes into the dvd drive slot on my laptop, and I needed an external drive to replace it.
The drive works great and like I said when you do not need it, it fits in a drawer out off the way. it has fast burning speeds too! 8X Dvd + R and -R, 24X Cd + and -R it even does DL discs too but I do not use them... A great Drive for the money, if you do not mind taking up 2 usb ports while in use...

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Hooked it up, works great. Does what I need it to.

Cons: Takes up two usb ports, which is not stated anywhere in item details that I could see

Other Thoughts: I purchased this item for my girlfriend because she purchased a Sony Vaio all in one touch computer from newegg, and she failed to realize there was no disc drive on it until she went to burn a cd. Funny right?

3 out of 5 eggsDecent drive, requires 2 USB ports

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: read and writes discs

Cons: requires 2 usb ports (thought it'd work with only one). This renders it useless with my Macbook Air unless I use a usb extender to connect it to the ports (one on each side of laptop) as the built-in cable is not long enough.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Got one of these to burn backup discs for my wife's netbook. This thing worked about an hour before it started vibrating and making loud noises. It then wouldn't read or write discs.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Marc57,

I’m sorry to hear about your DVD Burner issue, but how are you using this DVD Burner? What type of discs are you using for reading and what type of discs are you using for writing? Which CD Burning software are you using? In case you have not contacted Newegg, please email me at cl-celeste@asus.com with ref#1072-5004 in the subject line. I would like to help you troubleshoot this product.

Sincerely,
Celeste

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Reads and Writes without problems
Handles small dvd's

Cons: Plastic feels cheap, be careful with it

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my Macbook Pro to import movies from smaller dvd's that the super-drive can't handle. Does everything I wanted it to.
