1 out of 5 eggsNot mac compatible

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NS50

Pros: Attractive, small external optical drive. Appears to be well constructed.

Cons: Not mac compatible as claimed. I have a Late 2013 21.5" iMac model ME08LL/A (upgraded from Mtn. Lion to Mavericks) and I could not get it to recognize the drive. It would get enough power to open the tray to insert a disc.

I RMA'd the unit, the replacement couldn't be recognized either. Both units did work on my Mid-2012 15" Retina MacBook Pro however.

The USB cable included with both units isn't like the one depicted. The included cable only had one USB Type A connector, not two to provide additional power.

Other Thoughts: Shame it didn't work, it matches my macs.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Like it Should

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NS50

Pros: It works just like any optical drive should.

Cons: It can get a bit loud when it's in use but it's not worth docking an egg for.

Other Thoughts: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat portable optical disk drive

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NS50

Pros: - Sexy and sleek design

- Very Portable (my reason behind buying it)

- Great price (I used a promo code

- M-Disc is supported

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My reason buying this drive was because I wanted a portable USB powered drive that I could pack around with my to client's homes. I also wanted a drive I could use when working on client machines in my shop that no longer had a working DVD drive installed in them. This fit the bill and it was under $30 using a promo code. I did not know about M-Disc but am very curious to try them out and it is nice knowing this slim drive supports them. If you are not familiar with M-Disc, just google it to find out more. This drive does exactly as I expected. Thanks Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes it right the first time

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NS50

Pros: No switches, dials, knobs, or membrane buttons to push (other than to insert media)
Powers right up when energized and works as expected.
Very portable.
A true plug and play device

Cons: Non skid feet on device bottom would beneficial but still a two handed operation to use.

Other Thoughts: At nearly double the price of an internal drive I have to wonder if it is really worth it. However if you factor in the ability to use this device with computers where an internal drive is not possible, then you may justify the additional cost.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what.I ask

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NS50

Pros: I bought this for a netbook without a disc drive. Its done everything I've asked it to. It's small and lightweight.

Cons: The lightness doesn't make it feel like a high quality product

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working after a day

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NS50

Pros: None

Cons: Purchased on sale on Black Friday so I could rip some of my DVDs and copy a few old data discs I had laying around. Worked fine for a day. The next day when I continued copyng my data the drive made it halfway through a CD before it started making a loud noise. Now it won't read any disc I put in it. Do yourself a favor and buy something else. Last time I'll ever buy an LG product.

Other Thoughts: Stupid me threw out the box and manuals already or I would have returned this piece of junk.
