Rosewill Model ROD-EX002 - Slim Aluminum 8X DVD Writer - USB 2.0 - External Optical Drive for PCs - Black
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Sturdy aluminum design
-Works with iMac
-Works off a single USB port
-Very affordable

Cons: -Seems to burn slow, although the specs match up with every other external drive on the market. This could also be because macs burn disks in a 2 pass process with the verification pass taking just as long as the write pass.
-Sometimes I have to unplug/replug the USB for it to recognize a new blank disk, but only occasionally.

Other Thoughts: I am a working photographer who delivers photos on CD and backs up my catalog weekly with DVDs. I have had this drive since May 2013 (about 5 months) and have burned at least 1,000 disks in that time. This little drive burns like a champ and I think has only made one or two coasters out of hundreds of disks.
