5 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: has worked fine with no problems since I bought on 1/23/09. have only used with my Acer Netbook (Windows XP) that I bought the same day since a netbook doesn't have a DVD drive. I haven't tried it on my two HP computers (1 desktop 1.5 yrs old and 1 laptop 3 months old) since they have DVD drive/burner that are on Windows 7, so can't provide any feedback regarding Windows7. I might just try it on those computers just to see and update my review.

Cons: misplaced the power cord :-), so is only powered up when plugged into USB jack/computer.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked once then quit

Pros: None

Cons: Worked once then quit. Slow rips when it did work. (Powered by dual USB cables.)

Other Thoughts: All I wanted to do was to burn CDs to my girlfriend's netbook. I hooked it up and the net-book, which was running XP, recognized the drive fine and so did iTunes. But a few days later, it refused to recognize the drive, and niether would two other computers. Returned to BB. Could get a Plextor drive from New Egg for what I paid BB for the Lucky Goldstar.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've burned maybe over 100 DVD's with no problem. Since that's the reason I bought it, I've been pleased. Pretty quiet and very little vibration. I use it with a Macbook and it's plug and play right out of the box. Never installed the software. Didn't want all that extra junk.

Cons: Really none so far. Well, actually I wanted to buy one for our son for Christmas but it's out of stock. Bummer

5 out of 5 eggsNice DVD burner for the price

Pros: Slim, lightweight and works as it should so far. Quiet and as vibration free as a burner of this type could be. Fits Perfect on top of my Mac Mini, and great to carry along with a MacBook. Cables are good quality.

Cons: Because it's lightweight it tends to move when closing the disc tray... But no big deal. It would have been nice if it came with an A/C adaptor (just to have all bases covered), but it seems to run fine off of just one USB port, and I haven't had to use the 2nd (supplied) USB power cable.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't come with any Mac software (Windows only), but it doesn't need any for the drive to be recognized. I'm using it with Roxio Toast, and so far no concerns...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive...first impression at least

Pros: Just recieved the drie and first I have to say that newegg shipped it out very quickly. the drive itself work flawlessly. Bought this to replace a HP ultra slim drive in an enclosure and that drive consgtantly had issues (disk hitting the sides, wouldn't mount properly, etc.) unpacked the box, plugged in the single usb plug and I was installing Win7 Ultimate in a minute, seriously! very quiet and fast. Highly recommend especially if you are like me and have a tablet without a built in drive. FYI, I used this with a HP TC1100 and no problems at all with either the BIOS or Win7

Cons: Nothing Yet

Other Thoughts: haven't tried to burn yet

4 out of 5 eggsIt's what you'd expect

Pros: It works, it's slim, powered by USB (2 ports) only.

Cons: It's nothing amazing, but it is what it is.

Other Thoughts: Works, and is a good price (when I bought it as a Shell Shocker).

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Slim, glossy finish.
It works.

Cons: There is no cable management. But then, no other external drives at this price range seem to have cable management. :(

Come on. It is not that hard to come up with some sort of cable management like Dell did with their D/Bay.

Other Thoughts: This drive is rated 1.6A, but USB port specification only guarantees 500mA. This could cause I/O errors while reading or burning CD/DVD.
This problem can occur in all USB powered external ODDs.

LG installed a super capacitor (that is capacitor with large capacity) rated 5V 0.5F to solve this problem to some degree. However, this may not be enough if USB port cannot keep up with current this burner is drawing.

Would been nice if they supplied 5V power adapter in case this problem occur.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice

Pros: Exactly what I was expecting to get. As well as matches my Acer Aspire One. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice external cd drive. Also you can't beat 100 free DVD-R's.

Cons: NERO............But other than that it has worked like a charm every day since i got it.

Other Thoughts: Wished that UPS got here quicker, although there was a weekend in between so it took an extra day.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Works right of of the box

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Works great. I only had to connect one of the USB cables to power it. Its nice to know that there is a second power source if the computer can not power the drive. I have not tried writing DVD's yet so I can not comment on that
