This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 Black External Slim CD / DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U
Pros: Only $12 after MIR, works w/o drivers on Windows 10. It's also pretty quick.
Cons: It needs 2 USB ports to power it and push data. Build quality is also very plastic feeling, but it's cheap so as long as it keeps working it's fine with me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's pretty quiet, LEDs produce a decent glow that isn't as offensive as some of the Blue LED fans I've had in the past.
Cons: Packaging is extremely light, I'm hoping mine wasn't damaged in shipping and works for a long time.
Other Thoughts: Got it for "free" ($6, w/ $6 MIR), and am still waiting on my rebateREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap when on sale, Black Friday had it at $12 and for that price it's a steal!
Cons: Can't think of any cons so far, it's just a generic plug and play switch. Can't say I'm a fan of the glossy finish on the plastic (you'd think manufacturers would have learned by now that these are fingerprint magnets and look awful when dusty) - I'm used to normal metal boxes a la Cisco and the build quality of this unit is definitely less than a NetGear or Cisco.
Hopefully it lasts more than a couple years.
Other Thoughts: I hate retail boxing....I'd rather just have those plain cardboard boxes. I already know what I'm ordering so there's no need to advertise to me on the box.READ FULL REVIEW
