Pros: I am something of a tecno-idiot--a boomer who learns computer stuff on a as-you-go, need-to-know basis. I recently got an MSI L2100 netbook, and wanted to be able to play DVDs and CDs on it. I read the reviews on Newegg and decided on this unit. I'm not disappointed. I don't know squat about its writing/burning capabilities and frankly don't care. I wanted something that would play DVDs and CDs right out of the box, and this one does. Standing up or lying down. Quietly. At a square price. And I really like that it only uses one USB port on my netbook--so I can place it on either the left or right of my netbook, with plenty of cord room, depending on whatever desk set-up I'm dealing with. Reviews of other units indicates that this is a real plus. The specs suggest it's much faster than similar units.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I have nothing to compare it to, but I was a bit surprised by its size and weight. I thought it might be a bit smaller and a bit lighter. Not a complaint; just a remark. AND I want to thank the Newegg folks and their customers--had I not had access to their reviews, I likely would have paid more for a unit that would have been no better for my needs.
