4.0 out of 5 stars Good piece of kit 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
This works straight out of the box for Win7. It's also lightweight (but not flimsy) and portable. Quickly detects fastest operating speeds. Only caveat is that it really needs 2 x USB to function properly (one power, one data). The cord is not long enough if you have 1 USB on each side of the laptop - an extension is needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected, but not my reservations 11 April 2013
By Rubicon
Verified Purchase
This drive was purchase to work with an Asus Windows 8 Laptop purchased for my daughter. We have had it for a couple of days and it works fine. I have not tried it with a DVD film as Microsoft has removed Media Centre from Windows 8 standard. However that was not the main reason I bought it. It is light and slim and very portable. It is not officially compatible with Windows 8 so buyer beware. That said I have found no issues so far. The Asus web site is not intuitive and I found it impossible to log a technical sales request to clarify this unless I lived in China or the USA!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with my purchase 5 Jan 2013

I bought this as my ASUS laptop DVD-writer broke down. I've only written a few discs so far, but it has performed very well and up to my expectations. I didn't even have to use the software CD that came with it, as the computer recognised it automatically.

5.0 out of 5 stars useful and slim 25 Mar 2013

small and light, useful and works great. You will need 2 USBs very close to each other as the cable isn't long though. Does what it says on the tin!

Worked first time. Good quality. Only thing you have to watch out for is that there are 2 USB ports used so that the correct power is delivered. That's ok if you have another USB port. So make sure you have at least 3 on your laptop. that way you can use a USB hub on the remaining one.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% success rate with this one 6 May 2013
This is a very good ext dvd writer. Though it might be comparable to other branded writers, I have used this with 100% successful burns.

It can be used without the extra USB power supply cable if the laptop motherboard supports enough power supply to single cable.

It's very quiet too.

Definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good and performs as required... 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I chose this to visually complement my Asus Vivobook which didn't work! However, I have no complaints about it's functions except to say that the cd enclosed software is somewhat out of date, easily sorted though.
