Great Product

Pros: This is the second one that I have purchased. I owned the first one for two and a half years before I had any problems and it was an easy fix.

Cons: No cons at this time.

Overall Review: Comes in an aluminum case. Well built. I would recommend this product to anyone especially if you will be carrying it around or moving it a lot.

Very nice burner

Pros: Does what you would expect.
Turns off when not in use, and powers back on nearly instantly.

Cons: The door struggles to open, clicking sometimes for a few seconds.
The drive works fine but because of this I docked one egg.

Does as advertised - big, loud, rumbly

Pros: Rips at a decent speed. Transfers ~ 500 images from CD in about 30 seconds (600 KB/second). Sustained transfer of a single disk image was faster. I... think that's fast? I expected moving the laser around for hundreds of different files to slow things down. Maybe it's quicker for a single, larger file... ?

Cons: Loud. Sounds like my desktop computer's fans when ripping 80 MB of images. Distracting volume that is noticeably higher than my Macbook Pro's old internal drive, which were not quiet.
Shaky. The thing vibrates my desk enough to be annoying.
Big. Nothing "Slim" about it.

Overall Review: I original bought an external enclosure for my Macbook Pro's disc drive, replacing it with a second internal SSD. It was VERY quiet within the external enclosure. It unfortunately got lost while moving.

I've owned several Rosewill internal disc drives and external hard drive enclosures over the years. They make solid products that tend to last and I doubt this is the exception. However, for nearly $40 I expected a "Slim" drive to be slim, and I did not expect it to be so slow and so loud in the year 2014. I may replace it yet.

Pros: Seems to operate fine once the OS has loaded.

Cons: Crashed whenever I attempted to boot from it. I could not get it to install Windows (which was my primary purpose for purchasing it).
