5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Allows me to get rid of ODD drives for all my PCs. Anytime I need to use ODD media, I just plug this bad boy in and enjoy!

Cons: Not super fast, but fast enough for my purposes. Never been limited by the speed.

Other Thoughts: Great product, Highly recommended!

4 out of 5 eggsIt works?

Pros: Cheap
Looks nice

Cons: Very flimsy and the tray comes out crooked and very loose.
Slow spin up on a few of the cds I put in to test it.

Other Thoughts: I debated giving it 3 eggs since it seems so cheap and flimsy and probably will not last very long unless your very careful with it and baby this thing a bit but I gave it 4 since it works and was very cheap and basically using it for some Mini ITX builds that have no optical drives.

1 out of 5 eggsdisfunctional (on arrival)

Pros: Small and lightweight design

Cons: DOES NOT WORK
Bought off newegg business and got it as a backup for a server with no optical drives. First opened after 3 months sitting on a shelf and it just doesn't work, it shows the drive but has read errors, write errors and disconnects. I tried a different usb cable as well as a different PC, but it's the drive itself.
I would expect better QC from a company like Samsung.

1 out of 5 eggsCould be better

Pros: Light, fast CD/DVD drive. Until it stopped working, no issues.

Cons: Lasted 1 year, 3 months. Apparently the female power/data connector on CD/DVD drive is either glued on or a stamp fit. Noticed the power to the drive was coming on and off, lifted drive and it was dead. Opened case to find the female connector from drive rattling around inside drive. This drive was not mis-handled, it sat on a desk. In my opinion, a design flaw. Looking for another brand, hopefully with better cable connectors.

3 out of 5 eggsLess than Stellar

Pros: I am sure this drive will be fine for transferring files.

Cons: This drive cannot play a movie without pausing repeatedly to buffer/load.

Likely will struggle to burn a disc due to the stalls.
