3 out of 5 eggs Seemed like a good buy, not sure now 01/24/2014

This review is from: Polaroid USB 2.0 Slim 8X External Top Load DVD Drive Model DR110


I've used this little guy as a boot drive for working on laptops, netbooks and the occasional media PC that doesn't have an optical drive. It's nice to have an alternate boot source when running diags or installing software.


I'm never sure if this thing will work. With some PCs I can get them to find it and boot from it, others see it and can't use it and some don't see it all. The most frustrating part is when I get the drive to run and it shows life for about 10 secs then turns off.

Other Thoughts:

If you need something that you can depend on 100/100 times I'd suggest looking elsewhere.
