5 out of 5 eggsNice

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

Pros: Works without an external power supply.

Cons: Will not work with some older laptops because it draws a lot of power from the USB ports.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

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.

Cons: Only that finger prints show on the gloss finish real easy? But that is kind of a given.

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.
