Good Cheap Portable Drive

Pros: Great Price
Quick Write and Read Speed
Very Portable
Quiet

Cons: I had to give 1 egg off because it's a little too light, it's great for bringing with you just not using it sometimes. I had a lot of CD's to rip and every time you open or close the drive it will slide across the desk. It's easy to overcome by just holding the top.

Overall Review: Very good drive, If you need one, the price cannot be beat.

Useful for cheap storage

Pros: Portable
Decently fast
Easy to use and subtle

Cons: None

Overall Review: This is a handy little DVD writer. When I built my desktop I didn't want to designate an entire 5.25" bay to use on a sparsely used DVD burner. With this I just plug it in to a USB port when needed and then put it away. With DVDs "on the way out", people are giving away old disks. With this I am able to burn all the disks I would ever need for data backup and creating media like bootable ISOs. I haven't had any issues with driver compatibility yet (Used on Windows 7, 10, MacOS and Linux). I would recommend this to anyone.

Works most of the time

Pros: When it works it's fantastic.

Cons: Sometimes its stubborn and locks up when trying to burn a disc resulting in me having to restart my PC and use a different disc.

Overall Review: Its a nice solution for the dying cd drives that's for sure a lot of pc cases and laptops do not even come with them anymore

Easy to use

Pros: I really like this DVD/CD drive. I purchased it when the drive wend out in my iMac and it would have cost $250 to have it repaired. It worked like a charm, even after I dropped it from about waist high. It finally did have a somewhat violent death when the computer and it were separated unexpectedly (they were on separate surfaces--never a good idea) and the bottom aluminum plate was bent. I used it for years, and replaced it with another LG model that was about half as tall (and gold!). I really like LG's products in general. I really don't think you can beat it for the price.
It copies CDs as fast as the iMac did. I didn't do anything with the DVD writing, so I can't comment on that.

Cons: I didn't have any issues with this.

Overall Review: I bought another one after I killed this first one, and I am also buying one for my step-daughter in college.

Works with Windows 10 & Does what it's designed to do!

Pros: -Easy setup
-Software included but not necessarily needed if you use freeware like ImgBurn
-Burns CD's/DVD's fast and consistently
-Good for Work or Home environment
-Works straight through USB on MAC or PC

Cons: -None at the time

Overall Review: Yes, I would highly recommend this product for anyone that needs an external CD/DVD Burner drive. I use this at work because my new setup no longer had an internal CD/DVD drive. Also, my laptop setup no longer came with an internal CD/DVD drive either. It's honestly a technology that seems to be slowly phasing out. I was concerned if this would work properly with Windows 10 but was delighted when I got the box and it had a Windows 10 compatible stamp on it. I saw complaints about other models by the same brand that wouldn't work with 10 for some reason. I'd recommend waiting for an advertisement for one of these as it seems to be frequently discounted.

Perfect portable device to have!

Pros: Not only is this easy to use, but the compact size makes it very portable as well, not to mention that it does not use up much space at all (I bought this specifically for a gaming laptop that did not have an optical disc drive, so having a compact one like this made things very easy).

Cons: Only slight complaint is that this external drive does vibrate a lot, so be cautious when using it on a fragile surface, but besides that, everything else is fine!

Easy install

Pros: - Easy install on Windows 10
- Works
- Cheap

Cons: - None really. I wish it was USB 3.0 and higher transfer speeds?

Overall Review: Bought this for my parents, they had no trouble setting it up and getting it running on their own. Easy peasy!

Drawer Won't Stay Closed

Pros: Basically works---sort of.

Cons: Bought it for my daughter to take to college. within the first few weeks the drawer stopped staying closed. If she tapes it shut (or rubber-bands it) it will work. But really...
