5 out of 5 eggsK.I.S.S

Pros: small and it works just what I wanted

5 out of 5 eggsFunctional and the tray is good

Pros: Works even with only one USB port. Tray-loading rather than pop-up. Only generic drivers required, so it functions on every OS I've tried it on (Windows XP/Vista/7/8, OS X, Ubuntu Linux).

Cons: Mini-USB is already out of style, so stock up on the cables while you still have the chance.

Other Thoughts: Probably one of the best external drives I've ever used.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Slim, easy to use, light weigth

Cons: Shipment at newegg is a waste of money big time. Customer service is another home run here. Never pay extra and then packages get lost. My package got lost and the customer service wasn't responding to my queries properly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Decent speed. Not enormous on your desk.

Cons: Does take up two USB spots (that was expected though). It also seems a little flimsy on the tray opening, if there is any pressure on the case in the wrong place it won't operate smoothly.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent drive

Pros: Easy install (Vista 64 SP1). I simply plugged it in and the drivers loaded.

Decent performance overall.

Cons: The hub is a bit stiff and it required a bit more force to seat a CD. It has loosened up, but it is still stiffer than other portables I have used.

Other Thoughts: It would have been nice if the cable were about 2' longer. (Isn't it always)

For the price it's a nice external drive that functions well. So far it works well and meets my expectations.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Fast shipping, very cheap. Good for netbooks or any pc. USB powered, AV, Burns and plays DVDs nicely. Impressed with overall. It also comes with Nero 10 software. No complaints!

Cons: At first the tray would not open at all, it was making some clicking noises as it was trying to open tray. I tried opening it by inserting a paperclip in hole, that didn't work. Finally I held it with tray facing the ground and pressed eject button while giving it a gentle tap and they tray opens! It now opens and can close it normally with no problem. Yes, I did plug in USB while doing all this. This won't happen to all of them, its rare, but it happened because its brand new and never been used or opened before. Not really a con, just want to let people know if they have this problem how to solve it.
