Too Noisy

Pros: Affordable, Functional, pretty much what' you would expect from a $20 OEM DVDRW

Cons: Very loud whirring when it's reading a disc. I bought the Samsung thinking it would be a quality piece of equipment for cheap. It's unbearable watching a DVD due to the noise. Wish I would have got a blu-ray player of a different brand.

SAMSUNG 128GB BAR Plus (Metal) USB 3.1 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 400MB/s (MUF-128BE4/AM)

Pros: Sleek design, very durable, large capacity, reads 300+ MB/s

Cons: -Slow write speeds after cache is fully utilized, down to 35-50 MB/sec -Keyring notch takes up alot of space in the design.

Overall Review: Works well for my purposes of a secondary backup for photographs. If you do anything very write-intensive on a frequent basis, buy something else.
