4 out of 5 eggsDoes the trick

Pros: Lightweight, easy to use.

Cons: If you plan on using the included cable and nothing else, you need two side-by-side USB ports to power this little baby. There is only about 4 inches of cord between the USBs. My only USB ports are on either side of my laptop but I was able to get around this little problem with a port USB expansion hub. Not ideal but it works. I took off one point for the cable.

Other Thoughts: I haven't installed the Super Multi Drive Install Disc at this point. I just plugged it in and tested out playing a DVD. So far so good. I am glad to have it.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Versatile Burner

Pros: Cheap (I got it for $9.99)
Does what it's supposed to.
Plays media files via tv's usb (see other thoughts)

Cons: It's so light that you have to hold onto the tray to put in or remove discs.

*DHL Eggsaver shipping. Slow & it takes days before they even start to track it. Newegg even started a claim for it as lost, but then it finally arrived & I cancelled the replacement.

Other Thoughts: I bought it for these reasons:

1-Wanted a portable for a netbook & a mini pc
2-Wanted a backup burner
3-Wanted an alternative media player for my TV (via usb)
4-It was a steal at $9.99

So far I've burned & played discs on my main pc, installed linuxmint on a netbook & used it as media player through my TV's usb & it works perfectly. I can now play my backup data dvd media files directly via usb on the tv. You can also play regular (playable) dvd's. Of course it can only read & play the individual VOB files, but that's fine. If you have a tv that plays media files via usb it's a great addition.
All in all, one of my all time best bargain purchases.

Finally, I do wish Newegg would stop using DHL. Both UPS & Fedex have cheap service that works through US Mail that are much better.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: It's a dvd player, not much to say. It does what it does, and it does it well. I don't burn or rip, so I can't say how it performs on those tasks.

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Newegg customer service is absolutely fantastic!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Does its job, lightweight.

Cons: Perhaps a bit too flimsy, but acceptable.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to compliment daughters new laptop that did not have an internal DVD/CD Reader/Writer provided. Worked as advertised.

5 out of 5 eggsNice portable rewriter

Pros: Small
Portable
USB power
I got it for $9.99!

Cons: None really. Some knock it for being plastic, but being metal wouldn't improve it any - all DVD/Bluray/CDROM drives have plastic internals.

Other Thoughts: Came in very handy for computers with no optical drive. Used it to install Windows on my netbook without a problem.
