4 out of 5 eggsIt works?

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208DB/TSBS

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)

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208DB/TSBS

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

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208DB/TSBS

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

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208DB/TSBS

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.

3 out of 5 eggsbest bang for your buck... I guess

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208DB/TSBS

Pros: Cheap and comes with some decent software

Cons: Very noisy, and the disc locks into place, so be sure the disc is in the tray correctly, unlike most optical drives that you just place the cd on the tray, then slide it into the computer and it's ready to go, this drive needs the disc to be locked in place with three separate locks, if this is not properly in place, it will possibly damage the unit or disc.

Other Thoughts: for the price this does more then enough, with the decline of optical drives I see no need to spend more on better quality for the amount of use it will get.

5 out of 5 eggsUseful IT tool

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208DB/TSBS

Pros: Works just as expected. Haven't had a laptop or desktop not recognize it so far. Design is small and light enough to fit easily in my tech bag.

Cons: I prefer micro USB since they are everywhere, This drive uses mini USB. However, the pictures show that, and I knew it before purchasing.

The housing is plastic and rather thin. I wouldn't put it in the large pocket of my tech bag that holds heavier items. I'm sure it would easily get damaged from banging around too much.

Other Thoughts: I use this to work on my client's laptops and desktops, often to do reformatting. It;s just easier than dealing with some of these slow PATA disk drives that take forever to recognize windows boot or recovery disk.

Works great with laptops that don't have a disk drive. So far, I've only used this drive with Windows machines.

Overall I'm glad I bought it. It's fairly priced, useful, and works.
