This review is from: Slim Magnetic DVD Burner for Barebone
Pros: Works great and matches the little Nettop perfectly. LOVE that it's a slot loading drive instead of a tray!
Cons: The magnets don't attach quite firmly enough for my tastes. It stays put, but it shifts around a little and gets out of alignment with the PC at time.
Other Thoughts: The magnetic attachment is cool, but I'd gladly trade it for an option to physically attach the drive with screws to the PC. As a drive, it works flawlessly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small and quiet. USB 3.0 and DDR3 RAM. HDMI output. Got mine while the DVD drive was free.
Does its intended job quite well (albeit not speedily).
Cons: Low power is LOW power. Not that I really expected much else, but this Celeron 847 is... slow... Mine's currently running a standard hard drive; gonna swap it for an SSD when I have time (gotta move it from another machine). Hopefully that will improve the responsiveness of the system.
Other Thoughts: I'm running Windows 7 Pro on mine. It works perfectly fine for its intended use (a cheap replacement for a power hungry Pentium 4 TVPC), but its not as quick as I'd hoped it would be. Hoping that the SSD swap will make up for it.
All in all, I'm happy with it for what I paid. It's small, quiet, and I can actually HEAR my TV shows instead of the computer's roaring fan! lol
Pros: Keeps drives cool, fan is (relatively) quiet. Decent quality construction.
Cons: Connection is intermittent on BOTH computers I tried it on (both Macs, if that's important). Sometimes data would write perfectly, other times it would drop off and disconnect in the middle of a write. Needless to say, I don't trust it. I was using it with four 1TB WD10EAVS WD Green hard drives.
Other Thoughts: I really wanted this to work... I really did; cheapest solution I could find with all the features I wanted, looks pretty nice, and is QUIET (hard to find in a quad enclosure). But if DATA isn't going to copy correctly. then I can't trust it - DATA is what this is for, after all. :-(READ FULL REVIEW
