1 out of 5 eggsDidn't Work

Pros: Would be nice if it actually worked. Motor didn't work, didn't spin up any discs.

Cons: Ended up waiting a long time to use it and when I did, it didn't work. Long past NewEgg return period or manufacturer warranty.

Other Thoughts: Ended up finding a naked CD-RW / DVD-ROM drive from an old laptop and replaced the drive in the enclose and it works fine.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill QUALITY

Pros: Rosewill has never let me down, their products have so much quality for little cost.

Every Rosewill product I have bought has always come neatly packed without ever having any problems. A lot of times I reuse the package it comes in to store the item when not in use because the packaging is so low profile.

This DVD drive works great, very low profile design, and quiet.

Cons: Wasn't free?

NONE.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill = Quality and Low cost.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks on Imac Mini

Pros: Works on an Imac Mini using a powered USB hub, I then needed only one of the USB connectors hooked up. To eject, needed to go to Finder and eject it from there, it would not eject using the button on the front of the DVD-RW.

Cons: Wouldn't open using button, Software is not Mac based, so no player. Didn't try playing a DVD yet, but it would read data CDs and DVDs.

Other Thoughts: Haven't used for long, just wanted to note that it does work for Imac Mini even though it only lists PC and Linux.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: -Plug and play
-No hiccups

Cons: -Wants to use 2 USB ports

Other Thoughts: This thing works just fine, I purchased it as a hold-over until I find the BD Burner drive I want. I've used it for both long and short sessions, it operates exactly as advertised, no problems whatsoever.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Disapointing

Pros: Cheap and installs easily.

Cons: Cable is too short and the split cable is annoying. The device is not recognized by most applications as a writable device. W7 will attempt to write to it but it just opens and says load a disk, when there was one in there. So bottom line is I can't write to it at all. About half of the time it will not read either. But If I keep trying it finally will work.

Other Thoughts: Don't wast your money on this. Spend a little more and get one that works. I would say don't buy anything from Rosewill. Every Rosewill product is cheap junk. I have not been happy with any of their products. This is the last.

Manufacturer Response:

Please kindly contact the Rosewill support team either via phone at 800-575-9885 or via email at rma@rosewill.com so we may assist you with a replacement.
Thanks,
