5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

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

Pros: It works on my Late 2013 21.5" iMac model ME08LL/A ! I had to plug it in to the back of the mac, the ports on the apple wired keyboard should put out at least 500mA - guess the CD drive needs more than this. When connected to the back of the computer, I only had to use a single port.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsAsus must be latin for solid

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

Pros: I ordered this at a very very cheap price and was happy when I saw it was an Asus product. I have never had a problem with an Asus that couldn't be fixed with an RMA and have had very very few RMA's with their product.

This product is very solid and surprisingly so for the price. It has a diamond cut finish that looks great as well.It's plug and play ability was really responsive and it read my discs with incredible speed. I am really happy with the price of this and the quality.

Cons: 2 usb's to power it. (I am guessing its because of how fast this thing is and that is ok)

5 out of 5 eggsA must have

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

Pros: I have tried this in a windows desktop and with a mac book air. This is a must have for those with new laptops that don't come with optical drive. This guy looks great (though a little plasticky) but it works very very well. It is pretty light and a great price!

Cons: just a little cheap looking and your finger prints will be noticible all over this thing in 3 seconds, but fully functional and pretty quiet. Could be slimmer

Other Thoughts: Asus makes quality gear, I have been buying their stuff for years and I have accumulated some of their stuff (Black diamond router, asus monitor, graphics card). All grade A craftsmanship that is long lasting and well engineered.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus SDRW-08D2S-U

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

Pros: Excellent Optical Drive. I bought another one just to have a spare.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: You only need to connect to one USB port to read discs, music CD's or movie DVD's. It's "plug and play" so it probably is supported by most if not all O.S. I use mine with my Asus netbook.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus SDRW-08D2S-U

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

Pros: Excellent Optical Drive.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My Asus optical drives never seem to fail me and some of them are ten years old now. My HP Drive quit reading DVD's after four uses. My LG Drive quit after about six uses. I wish I was that lucky with ASUS Motherboards and Sound Cards.

4 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: - Does what I need it to.

Cons: - A bit on the slow side, ripping a music CD takes a good 5-10 minutes.
- USB cable provided is fairly short. Can lead to having to awkwardly position it depending on where I am when using it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good indeed

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

Pros: works, looks good, rips the fastest true bit copies/no errors compared to the many internal/external drives i've owned.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i can't believe that this drive is so inexpensive. a very good deal indeed.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Little Reader

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

Pros: Free shipping and yet it arrives the very next day? Sign me up!

Plugged into my wife's new laptop and was immediately recognized w/o the software that accompanied it (laptop is running windows 8). The price was a bit more than some cheaper options but there's a reason this model is getting the reviews it is.. you wont go wrong picking it up if you find yourself in need of a CD-ROM. I'm not even sure we will ever utilize the DVD writing capabilities but regardless, I'm very happy with the purchase.

Cons: None yet - but it has only been a week. So far no complaints.
