4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Hooked it up, works great. Does what I need it to.

Cons: Takes up two usb ports, which is not stated anywhere in item details that I could see

Other Thoughts: I purchased this item for my girlfriend because she purchased a Sony Vaio all in one touch computer from newegg, and she failed to realize there was no disc drive on it until she went to burn a cd. Funny right?

3 out of 5 eggsDecent drive, requires 2 USB ports

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: read and writes discs

Cons: requires 2 usb ports (thought it'd work with only one). This renders it useless with my Macbook Air unless I use a usb extender to connect it to the ports (one on each side of laptop) as the built-in cable is not long enough.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Got one of these to burn backup discs for my wife's netbook. This thing worked about an hour before it started vibrating and making loud noises. It then wouldn't read or write discs.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Marc57,

I’m sorry to hear about your DVD Burner issue, but how are you using this DVD Burner? What type of discs are you using for reading and what type of discs are you using for writing? Which CD Burning software are you using? In case you have not contacted Newegg, please email me at cl-celeste@asus.com with ref#1072-5004 in the subject line. I would like to help you troubleshoot this product.

Sincerely,
Celeste

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 White External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U

Pros: Reads and Writes without problems
Handles small dvd's

Cons: Plastic feels cheap, be careful with it

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my Macbook Pro to import movies from smaller dvd's that the super-drive can't handle. Does everything I wanted it to.
