SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-S084C

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for Netbook 09/10/2010

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-S084C

Pros: Bought this for use with my wife's HP netbook. She's used it mostly to rip and burn music CDs. No complaints - it's fast, quiet, and reliable. Nice compact size, just barely bigger than a CD. Very light too, but it doesn't feel cheap.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have two USB ports that are pretty close to each other so you can plug in both the main connector and the auxiliary power connector.

Ripping music CD's isn't too bad on battery life, but you'll definitely want to be plugged in if burning more than a disc or two.

Pros: Worked like a charm in my wife's HP netbook. Replaced the default 1GB module with this to improve multitasking performance.

Cons: None.

Pros: Drivers and software for Windows 7 included in box. Works great both on my Windows 7 Home Premium x64 desktop and Windows 7 Starter on a netbook. Small footprint and pretty quiet operation. Wireless performance has been good, though sometimes there is a noticeable delay when scanning complex pages. Decent B&W printing speed. We don't do a lot of photo printing but I did print some 4x6 on the included photo paper, and the quality was excellent (but see cons below). Takes 1-2 minutes to print a borderless 4x6. Scanning quality is also excellent. The document feeder works pretty well for a consumer model and will be very handy for scanning some old paperwork. Can scan to many file formats including PDF.

Cons: Printed a picture on a piece of Kodak high gloss 4x6, and the quality was terrible, as the black ink apparently didn't adhere in many places and bubbled up. Tried again using a piece of HP semi-gloss - same deal. We don't do a lot of photo printing, but if we did I would consider this a serious drawback. If you plan to print photos with this, I guess you have to use Brother photo paper. Document feeder can bind up when ejecting pages if they were folded (the pages catch each other's creases). Also the 15-page limit on the feeder is a bit small, and the base scanning software provides no method to stitch together multiple scans from a larger document. By default, the print driver was set to print multiple-page documents with the last page coming out on top so you have to re-order printouts. Fixed it by enabling the setting to print pages in reverse order, but it's the first printer I've ever had where that wasn't the default.

Other Thoughts: I don't really do any photo printing, but it is frustrating not to be able to use this Kodak or HP 4x6 paper I have laying around. If you do photo printing, I'd look for something else. Otherwise I've been very happy with this as a general purpose multifunction printer.
