5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: *Perfect solution for quick, no-hassle server and netbook OS installs. Recognized at POST on all Dell PowerEdge servers and Inspiron netbooks I've used it on.
*Solid construction. Well placed blue-LED power indicator on the top right hand corner.
*Portable, powered thru the provided 24" USB cable so no external power supply to deal with.
*Quiet even at full spin.

Cons: *Gloss black finish gets dirty with fingerprints quickly but is boxed with a cleaning cloth. Not a big deal but I prefer a matte finish.
*Cheesey purple crushed velvet sleeve collects debris out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job

Pros: Worked great.
Has been recognized by all PCs.
***Recognized by all servers I've used it on for initial installations. Very nice.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Short cord, but any A/B USB cable will work. So, I borrowed one off a printer to use in a situation that required a longer cable.

5 out of 5 eggsThats More Like It

Pros: Quiet, fast. Nice unit. I am updating my review.

Cons: First one had grinding noises and read errors.

Other Thoughts: Received new drive after returning original. This is what I expected. Much quieter than the first one. No errors.
A little pricey but I am satisfied.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Had check errors with several cd's from the start. Checked cd's on several other drives with no problems. The problem follows this drive. Also makes unusual noises. Looks like replacement policy will add time and shipping costs to the already high price.

Other Thoughts: Will update when I get a functional replacement. Resurrection of daughter's Acer One will have to wait.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat and reliable

Pros: Quiet and smooth, only need one USB to operate. Works well with my netbook.
Reliable drive by Plextor. My last Plextor lasted more than 3 years with quite regular DVD burning.

Cons: Expensive

Other Thoughts: Buy if you prefer small portable and reliable DVD burner.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Good, fast drive. Works great under Fedora 11 Linux. I didn't have to install drivers or anything, just plugged in the drive and popped in a DVD and it worked great!

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsbest external burner

Pros: small drive that does not need external power plug. Build is high quality and perfect for making images of net books or slate pc's we have. People that take it with them like the enclosed pouch and no need to carry a lot of wires.

Cons: Initial charge was over four hours but that could have been because i was using and old old pc to charge the drive

Other Thoughts: Wish the battery was user replaceable
