4 out of 5 eggsSo far, just what i need

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

Pros: Small and very easy to configure - just plug and play with my Mac

Cons: It runs a bit on the noisy side, but seeing as how I don't use the drive continuously, that is not a major drawback.

Other Thoughts: Fast shipping, as always with Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

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

Pros: I needed a this because i'm a iMac owner and i don't need a full time cd/dvd rom drive but this is nice to have and easy to use. Plus you can hook it up to any tv with a USB port

Cons: Non that i can think of i've only used it a couple of time and put it away when i need it next. It's not a full time thing with me right now needed to burn stuff to cd/dvd but it's nice if you need it

Other Thoughts: For the price and all it has to offer i think i made a good choice

4 out of 5 eggsNot so bad after all

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

Pros: Compact, works well as long as it gets adequate power from the USB connection (no provision for external power)

Cons: May not work on some laptops due to inadequate USB power. you can fix this with a USB Y-cable

Other Thoughts: Since I can't correct my earlier review, this is an update to my earlier bad review (did not work on my Surface Pro with constant errors and spinup/spindown). I discovered that the problem was inadequate power coming through the USB port, a common problem with laptop and these USB-powered drives. After getting a Y-cable (single mini-USB male end, to two full-size USB male plugs, one for data and one for power only) the drive works fine. I plug one part of the Y into the charger socket, the other into the laptop, and it works fine without errors. It would be nice if they included a small power supply, or at least a plug for one, with these USB-only units, but they don't, so save a lot of grief and buy the inexpensive Y cable if you get one of these.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive!

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

Pros: Not insanely loud, does the job

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: I borrowed my friends for over a month for my use and that drove me to get this so I can return his. It looks good! I've worked it a lot lately since I watch movies with it some, but especially use it to make Linux DVDs for legacy computers (and Windows bc I can never get a USB to work) and I've ditched MP3 music and use this to rip music into flac/alac and it does the job!

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

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

Pros: Compact, works OK when it worked.

Cons: Unreliable, lasted only a few days and a couple of uses.

Other Thoughts: This worked OK the first time I used it, but went to use it a couple of weeks later and kept getting disc errors. First I thought it was the DVD itself, but another external writer worked perfectly with that disc. Now it has errors on every disc, will read a few files but not all, and all of those discs are OK. This is constructed similar to a laptop drive, and I've had laptop drives last for years without a glitch. Perhaps it's just a rare bad unit, but I thought I'd post this since it failed so quickly and had not been treated roughly at all. The lens is clean (blew it with air to be sure) but it gets errors on every disc. Perhaps the manufacturer will cover it, but I waited too long for Newegg to exchange it as defective, so I may just look for a different brand.

4 out of 5 eggsOK now but strange details

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

Pros: can work ok but sensitive to usb cable

Cons: usb cable very short

Other Thoughts: using windows 8.1. had trouble originally when plugged into usb 3 port, but then in usb 2 it worked fine. then i discovered it was the cord. the one that comes with the unit is very short so i was using a usb 2 extension cord into the usb 3 port - that is when i had the trouble. when i just used the cord that came with the unit it works now in the usb 3 port. i tried a second usb 2 extension cord and it also malfunctioned. A little quirky and i need to experiment with more cords but the unit works fine if this issue does not create a problem
