5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy!

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

Pros: Been waiting to buy an external DVD writer for some time and finally saw this deal for a Hamilton after rebate. Only burned several DVDs to this point, but no coasters as of yet. Quick enough and like the look (despite the glossy finish - see below) if that means anything. Convenience is #1 pro as I could use it on the laptops or trusty old desktop at a moment's notice.

Cons: Never a fan of glossy finishes on products that you have to touch as it just doesn't make sense. Noisy - All writers are somewhat noisy, but they're only working for short bursts, so no big deal.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

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

Pros: I don't have to use up an internal SATA port or have a rarely used device drawing power. I don't have to have keep a desktop computer within arm's reach. There is less wear and tear on the hard to replace optical drive built into my laptops. Higher power USB ports suitable for tablet charging make use of the "Y" cable unnecessary.

Cons: The only con here is speed. A larger optical drive would reads and writes at much faster speeds. Also I'd prefer a drive which used a micro USB connector.

Other Thoughts: I have an external enclosure for a full sized optical drive. Even on old computer's that only provide minimal power to the USB ports, I've found that the "Y" connector is only necessary for writing not reading.

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

Pros: Nice design and gloss finish on top. Works well and was recognized with no hassle, even without my OS being installed. Has worked flawlessly so far.
