5 out of 5 eggsVery interesting.

Pros: This writer is as simple as it gets. Plug it in ... pray ... and it works! I have only used it so far to install windows from it ... the bios picked it up easily and just ran.

Cons: It is VERY,VERY slow, at reading however. Meaning the USB3 bandwidth is not being used. It doesn't make sense providing a USB3 bandwidth connection when it won't even saturate USB2.x

Other Thoughts: It does not come with software (you must download that from the website).

No stars off for the speed though, I knew what I was getting into when I bought it.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung 2.0

Pros: Works well - a little slow, but handles anything I ask it to do.

Cons: None of which I'm aware.

Other Thoughts: For some unknown reason, this is the third time I've been asked to write a review, but the first time that I've actually been able to enter the feedback page. Additionally, I was asked, for the third time, specifically if this writer would work with 8.1. My answer? How would I know? I'm still running XP, and from what I've seen of 8.1, I intend to stay with XP. Sorry, newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat USB DVD Drive

Pros: My Acer Aspire instantly recognized it and needed no driver installation. It also recognized it at startup, which is the most important thing. For being a single USB drive, it is actually quite fast. The single USB hookup is also a plus as my Aspire only has two USB ports.

Cons: It's not USB 3.0, but for what it is, it's still fast enough.

Other Thoughts: Had I waited a few more days I could have gotten the black one for the sale price. I only chose this one as it was seven dollars cheaper than the black one at the time. Now the prices are reversed. In the end, though, it doesn't really matter what color it is, as long as it works. (I guess if it were lime green with purple polka dots I might make an exception to that rule)

2 out of 5 eggsMacbook Air (Mid 2013)

Pros: This drive works fine on my other computers.

Cons: I bought a 2013 Macbook Air and this drive won't work.

It must not supply enough power to keep the drive on.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great - Screams Mattell

Pros: It works great. Very light and no PS needed.

Cons: It's so light it seems made of nothing but thin plastic. I really don't trust it at all for the long haul.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat External CD/DVD Burner

Pros: Great alternative for Apple external superdrive. Does not require external power. Works great! Looks cool.

Cons: Not USB 3.0 but for what it does, it doesn't need to be.

Other Thoughts: I've used this drive pretty extensively over the past 7 months burning many DVDs and CDs. Hasn't missed a beat.
