5 out of 5 eggsIts Great!

Pros: -Got this drive because my new lap top did not come with a CD drive and I wanted a portable one just in case I needed it.
-Works great, is well built and looks modern. Have used it more than I thought for PC repair projects when older DVD drives act weird when booting disks.
-Two USB plugs for extra power if necessary
-Software it came with [cyber link] is nice and burned software more reliably than windows did.
-Seems to burn disks just as fast as my internal DVD drive on my PC

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: -Have had good experiences with LG products. Will continue to buy when needed.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: It's well made and works nice. Needed a new external cd/dvd so this fit the bill.

Cons: I almost never take a egg away from a product I like, but I felt I needed to this one time. The included cable is kinda short. So for that reason I removed 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: It works

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little DVD drive

Pros: Great for netbooks.
Just plug and play.

Cons: Tray load.
Not slot load.

Other Thoughts: Why cant other companies make slot load drives like the PS3 or a mac? Especially with an external drive the slot load is so cumbersome.

2 out of 5 eggsCons

Pros: The dvd burner is a good buy for the price, LG also supports their products. The unit does appear to have a flaw which was discussed with LG.- See Cons. It is compact and performs as well or better than other burners that I have purchased.

Cons: The tray fails to eject completely, having discussed this with LG I returned the unit and obtained a replacement. The replacement exhibits the same problem to a varying degree.

5 out of 5 eggsNice addon and replacement

Pros: Used it to load software on an ultrabook, does a great job. Used on my older laptop with a so-so DVD drive and it worked better than the one provided with the laptop

Cons: None so far

1 out of 5 eggsDied

Pros: Worked for my install of Win7 on a Mini-Itx system...worked for a few days.

Cons: Died after several days. Just wouldn't work. Still doesn't work. $30 wasted.

Other Thoughts: Avoid it. Mine stopped working for no reason. I'm past the Newegg return timeframe...I moved and didn't have time to do the RMA...now I'm stuck with a broken product :(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Very fast, fairly quiet, and USB powered.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive for use with my Retina Macbook Pro which does not have a DVD drive built into it. I have this and other accessories attached to a USB hub which I use as a type of pseudo docking station at my desk.

You can very clearly tell the drive is active when it's running because it starts to vibrate slightly. I fixed this problem by laying a book on the top of it, which gets rid of the vibration and most of the sound.
