5 out of 5 eggsGreat USB DVD Drive

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

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)

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

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

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

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

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

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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly!...

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

Pros: First, the name brand is highly reputable. Second, you can't beat the price. I bought this to compensate for a failing "super drive" in my 2009 macbook. Couldn't be happier. It actually works better and faster than the original internal drive.

Cons: None really. Using two USB ports isn't really a con for me considering I mostly use it to rip my CD's to iTunes...

Other Thoughts: I chose this particular color (Blue and White) because I like the scheme. It's classier than I expected. Also, the unit comes with windows software for burning discs! Great value-

1 out of 5 eggsNot USB 3.0 - lies and more lies

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

Pros: None for the Samsung 2.0 USB DVD driver I received - the one mis-represented as a USB 3.0 drive!

Although I think the Newegg box is pretty swell.

Cons: This drive is not USB 3.0. It comes with the standard mini-B USB 2.0 port and cable. Sure it will work if you plug it into a USB 3.0 port, but so will every other USB 2.0 device - as the 3.0 ports are backwards compatible.

Save your money and buy the USB 2.0 model - because that is all this thing is! If it was USB 3.0, it would have come with the required USB 3.0 9-pin cable and subsequent port. It doesn't!

Also the Samsung box was crushed HARD inside! Although the outside shipping box was flawless. That means some HUMAN put this very noticeably damaged product into a box to ship to a customer. Shame on you Newegg. I thought you were better than that.

Other Thoughts: Why this is advertised and sold at a higher price that the USB 2.0 Samsung drive is beyond me. USB 3.0 requires the special 9-pin cable.

This is plain deception and very poor advertising standards.
