Pros: Surprising, Newegg did such a good job of packing this burner in bubble wrap, it actually took a little effort to unwrap. Installed in a Win 8 newly built computer and was recognize immediate, and burned a dvd disc which completed and verified successfully. Truthfully, this burner is really quiet even at 16X max burn, I was even surprised. It came with a driver CD with Power2Go8,E-green and firmware update.
Cons: No cons, except the Power2Go software did install, I rebooted and tried to use it by clicking any icons but none opened up. Maybe, its not Win 8 compatible but looks like a decent piece of software, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, still the same issue. Not a Newegg problem, so no egg deduction from me.
Other Thoughts: In my opinion,ASUS products are most time better than the other cheaper models and have used their MoBos with great success. I also noticed that this drive is a bit heavier that the Samsung I have, maybe that explains why it's quieter.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I like the fact that the slots are well labelled and there is an MicroSD slot and another with the adapter type. My came with a black USB cable, and I read some of the reviews that it came with a white. I'm mostly using Sd cards for my cell phones and tablet ,so I really haven't tested the other slots and can say that this a true USB 2.0 device. I recently bought a similar item that claimed to be 2.0 but as soon as I plugged it in, windows XP , 7 & and 8 reported it as a non USB 2.0 reader.
Cons: None to date but hope it last some time
Other Thoughts: Considering the price, this reader is well worth it and its a Transcend, so most of us know it's a quality item. Its a convenient size so I will keep it with my laptop and purchase a few more.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: See my previous review
Cons: Decided to try it out after all and installed it in my computer. Next, tried to burn an ISO image of windows 8 and always failed at 91%. It did read a few DVD disks with files on them. Used a DVD+RW and DVD+R disk, same results. Reinstalled my old Samsung burner and it successfully burned to a DVD+RW disk with windows 8. So the new drive is busted.
Other Thoughts: I hope that Newegg will send a replacement when I request an RMAREAD FULL REVIEW
