Easy to Set Up

Very Thankful 12/26/2020

I wish the new laptops have disk drives but that is a flash drive dream. I thought it was going to be an extra expense added to the new laptops accessory list but it was cheap to buy. The primary fact was it was very easy to operate and install and take out again. Very Good

Unusable after a couple of months

YPauls 11/20/2020

I bought this drive a couple of months ago and now the Cyberlink software will not play a DVD. It worked when I installed it but now its requiring that I purchase an upgrade to play DVDs. Quite generously... Cyberlink is offering me 40 off the purchase price for that software but obviously I will not buy more software for a drive that was supposed to have included it at the time of purchase so this drive is now a brick on my desk. Completely unusable.

Good drive light wait and plug and play. No driver to worry about. One thing to remember is use the cable it came with. Will not work with other USB to micro-B cables.

Burning discs are brutally slow

Just an honest cat 2/17/2020

I purchased this external drive a few days ago and granted the price tag was pretty cheap the drive itself is extremely cheaply made. Burning 1 disc takes close to 8 minutes which is insanely slow compared to my old desktop that was 6 years old with an internal optical drive. This will eventually be a new coaster for my beers after a long days work.

Just What I Needed

TonyM21 1/25/2020

Since my laptop didnt come with a CD drive this unit is ideal for my needs. Ive wanted to download my music CDs onto a MP3 player and this unit has worked perfectly. The only problem Ive encounter with it it sometimes takes me pushing the open/close button a couple of times before it will open.

Terrible Unit

PNWY 1/18/2020

The unit itself may have worked fine if it was able to be plugged in. Mini USB cable that came with it fell out almost immediately and would not stay plugged in. There is a plastic layer that makes it so that the power cord does not reach the plug.

Works Great

dennyz99 12/16/2019

Purchased this external DVD drive to compliment my new Desktop PC that does not come with a DVD/CD drive. It works great and is small enough to stash away in a drawer when I dont need it. I was a little bit leery at first due to how light and flimsy it is but it does not affect the function of the device in the least. Great buy

Does the job well

Bamjammer 11/20/2019

Good style and performance. Would have been nice to have better rubber grip feet since it so lightweight that it slides too easily. I would also preferred the drive bay opening button to have been on a topside corner. Hard to push the button to open the drive bay door without the whole unit sliding away.

Not a lasting workable product

chuckthegirl 9/4/2019

Got this as a Christmas gift from my parents since the CD-ROM stopped working on my laptop and it was cheaper to get a portable DVD player than to fix my laptop. Started using in in February 2019 and it was GREAT BUT then in July 2019 only 5 months later it played a DVD to the middle of the movie then just froze. I could hear the DVD spinning inside but it wouldnt play. I let the player rest and tried the next day. Again it froze. Took forever to get my DVD to eject. A month later it was working fine then with another DVD it did the same it had before: played to the middle of a movie and then froze. I still havent been able to get my DVD out.

Ejected disc and re-inserted to make sure it was in place correctly. Still wouldnt load. Did try to load a another disc and was able to read it but player was loud and reacted slowly. Not acceptable performance when trying to read and navigate pdf files on a CD.
