Fantastic Drive!

Pros: Excellent build. Quiet (when compared to my other externals), Very fast across all media (DVD/DVD-RW/CD-R/CD-RW) when compared to my other externals.

Cons: The included USB cable is a little short for my configuration. YMMV.

Overall Review: I bought this to go along with my new PC build. Nice cases are hard to find when you want to include an optical drive - most manufacturers are going away from them.

My older LG external was refusing to open more often than I care to tolerate so I went searching for a replacement. I didn't want a flimsy slim-drive (mobility wasn't a major requirement. I wanted something tough, fast, and quiet and this one seemed like a good choice at a great price.

It fits the bill perfectly.

I didn't buy from Newegg for two reasons:

1 - I found it online $12 cheaper and....
2 - If it didn't meet my expectations I could just drive it down the street and return it to the store..

I don't have a bad thing to say about it. It works equally well in the upright position - its weight and build don't make it feel 'tippy' when inserting and removing DVDs from the tray. Tray movement in and out is quiet and smooth. Button feels perfect with just the right amount of movement and 'feel...'

Find the best price and buy this gem if the flimsy cheap drives aren't your cup of tea.

NOT MADE FOR MAC, NOR SUPPORTED AS ADVERTISED

Pros: Nice drive for PC Owners

Cons: Does not work with MAC. It runs, but my old DVD burner which is an older 2004 HP DVD Writer 630e blows this thing out of the water!
I was super excited about this drive too! And now to find out, there is no support for it when it says that it is on the box, and on the specs? If you're going to write software and advertise that it is MAC OS X Supported, then make sure that it is totally 100% Mac OS X Supported, and not have the user get home, and see that it goes slower than a 90-year old grandma driving a school bus during rush hour!

Fast on our Macs

Pros: Very fast, inexpensive, solidly build DVD burner.

Cons: None that we have found

Overall Review: One comment made in these pages was that the person had problems with this writer on a Mac. Based on our experience with two Macs, this writer is blindingly fast on both CDs and DVDs. I must admit that I had some question having read the other review, but that is not a problem with this unit.

It is solidly built, clearly for a desktop (it ships at six pounds) and I liked the first so well I bought a second.

Egg for OS X

Pros: Reasonable build by modern junk standards.

Cons: Doesn't work nicely on OS X - reads at 1x speed for a Mac. External power supply - not bus powered. I did not think to look for this, as almost every gizmo I've bought in 5 years has been bus powered. Noisy as hell.

Overall Review: Being taken to work and left on a table.

Broken after a year

Pros: It looked legit.

Cons: 18 years of IT here.

We barely used this thing at all, only for emergencies when the built in burner was being used. This thing burned out after a year, won't burn at all, dead. We have always had problems with it as well, always burned horrible ISOs.

5/ 5

Pros: Very well built external unit. My micro-ATX case did not have any place for a CD/DVD drive, but I wanted one, so I went this route and have been very pleased. Nice rubber feet to keep it from sliding around, and it feels like something that will last for many years to come.

Cons: Bigger that a lot of other external DVD drives, but it tucks nicely under my monitor and so that's not an issue for me, and also the size/construction makes it much more durable than some of the flimsy alternatives (so I guess this is not a con in my eyes at all).

Solid burner

Pros: Fast, no coasters, good price, solidly built

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I got this because I had one of those tiny drives that felt like I could break it with one hand, and that was never recognized by my Mac.

This one worked straight away, is fast, hasn't created any coasters, and since I don't really take it anywhere, the larger size isn't a problem. This isn't a burner you will stick in your laptop bag for portability, but it is a solidly built, high quality product.
