5 out of 5 eggsDependable drive

Pros: Still using this after more than 5 years. Considering it was a refurb when I bought it, that's saying something.

Cons: Glossy plastic. Like everything else it seems. Really not much to complain about.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value and performance

Pros: This drive works every time. It is nice and compact and the stand that it comes with is a nice bonus although I never bother with it. I only use it occasionally but it works every time with my Toshiba Satellite T215 11.6" computer.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought it as a refurb for a ridiculously cheap price - no regrets!
Too bad it is no longer available...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat external drive

Pros: It works very well, and is cheap!

Cons: To get the unit to write properly, you need to use the special cable that draws power from two usb ports. (not really that terrible, but worth mentioning)

Other Thoughts: Everyone should have one of these drives as a backup.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus refuses to honor rebates

Pros: The drive seems to work as it should

Cons: Asus customer service is awful. Youre made to jump through a series of hoops to talk to someone and then you get hung up on sometimes. After submitting my rebate I received an email saying the product wasnt part of the rebate program when clearly it was. I was promised callbacks by supervisors that never came.

Hope Asus enjoys the money they kept because its the last i will ever spend on one of their products

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive, great price

Pros: Works as expected, have had no problems and it's mainly used by the kids (ages 10 and 7). Glad I purchased as they can now watch DVD's on their PC without having to use "my" big-screen.

Cons: None I have discovered yet.
