This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Super-Multi Portable DVD Rewriter with M-DISC Model GP50NB40
Pros: Good cord length
Cons: As other reviewers have said this device draws more power from the USB port than the standard allows. When used with the surface this led to a "power surge on the usb hub". The drive would start to spin up and then abruptly stop with the error displayed. As others have said this overdraw of power is dangerous and can lead to damage of the computer.
Other Thoughts: Went with the EBAU108 which works great with the SP3READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low power consumption!
Cons: Sleep mode does NOT work on x58 motherboards.
Benched lower in 3DMark Vantage than my GTX580 Classified (750Ti 19088.7 pts vs. 580C 27937.9 pts)
Other Thoughts: My i7 970 still has life in it so I don't want to retire it yet. Kepler had the same sleep issue on x58 but I was hoping Maxwell would fix this, it did not. Google "GTX 680 - problems resuming from S3 sleep" and you will find the thread detailing this issue. Sticking with the 580C for now as sleep works greatREAD FULL REVIEW
