1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed!!!

Pros: The drive is recognized by the OS.

Cons: Burned just 3 CD's in it. used a couple times to play disks. Now, it won't recognize any disk inserted, blank or burned, light came on but kicked the CD right out.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what you need

Pros: This is a great solution if you rarely need an optical drive. USB-powered, no drivers necessary.

Cons: A bit slow.

Other Thoughts: I used it to install Windows and a network driver on a fresh machine. The interwebs can do the rest. Use your 5.25" bay for something more fun!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat,: for an external usb optical drive

Pros: 1) Does what it's suppose to do... read/write cd/dvd
2) Single usb cable for data and power. Does not require an additional usb cable for power
3) Got it for under $24. You can't beat that.
4) Plug and play. No special drivers required. Of course, this is to be expected in 2013 for an optical drive.

Cons: 1) Good grief, it's slow. But you have to temper your expectations, as this is an external drive powered by a single usb cable. Even read is limited to 8x. Don't expect the same read speeds of an internal desktop drive.

Other Thoughts: This is a great device to have since most ultrabooks do not have optical drives built in. Great portable solution for those rare occasions you actually need an optical drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWhy so long?

Pros: 0

Cons: Why does it take a week and a half for me to get my item? I get that I'm in FL an you're in CA but really does it take 3 days to get my order in box with a shipping label on it?

Other Thoughts: Get it together, not sure what happened to you huevo
