My 3 year old iMac optical drive failed and Apple wanted £100 to replace it. This drive plugged in and worked fine.

Needed this to download CD's into ITunes. Works a treat! No setting up required with my HP Pavillion Sleekbook just plugged it in and away we went. It is compatible with Windows 8 (info that I found hard to research before buying).

Bought to save having to replace an internal DVDRW in my Dell PC that was playing up. Tried a cheaper version which would not power up from the USB socket and which had to be returned. This works a treat and can also be used with other laptops/tablets etc.. You get what you pay for!

Exactly as I expected from a Samsung Product. Just plugged it in and off I went. No problems at all with burning DVDs or transferring from DVD/CD to computer.

It plays all the disc formats apart from Blu-ray! It's excellent. Only one warning: MAKE SURE YOU USE THE SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE WRITER'S POWER BOARD. Just pulling the usb out doesn't give chance for the drive to power down correctly.

This item is the newer version of (SE-208AB /TSBS - [amzn. to/177TVI1] you may think that SE-208AB is the newer product, but I assure you...this (SE-208DB) definitely is, i got quite confused and couldn't tell the difference, but luckily for you guys, I'm here to discipline your confusion :)

If you want to know the difference between the different external writers then go to the samsung '.com' website and follow "Home >> Consumer >> PC / Peripherals >> Optical Disc Drive" or go to > bit .ly/11HZo5v < (note: SE-S084F is an older version). Now you might say "The older one has 'Speed Adjustment Technology: S.A.T', why doesn't the new one have this". To be quite honest with you, the DVD writer knows what speeds best for itself, it doesn't need the computer to interfere and to tell it what to do, this 'Speed Adjustment Technology: S.A.T' is what causes failures and so on. Its also worth noting that the slower you write your data on to a CD/DVD the more reliable and accurate it will be (less mistakes).

Now we've got that cleared up... I personally thought it was difficult to find all the different colours of this item, because they aren't all grouped together like some of Amazons products [amzn. to/19yxUlI] so I thought I would take the courtesy to list them for you.
Blue - [amzn. to/14Avob1]
Black - [amzn. to/14AvtLG]
White - [amzn. to/13KixAg]
Red - [amzn. to/11ECNBC]

Performance - This item loads CD/DVD's Faster than my computers CD/DVD Drive

Colour, Design, Material - 4 main colours for this item, The design is very unique and the item feels incredibly light, Material is very "anti-dust" if you know what I mean, and it doesn't leave any smudges when you touch it.

I wanted to get an external CD/DVD drive to save wear and tear on my desk-top's built-in drive. After reading the reviews on Amazon (and seeking advice via Amazon answers) I bought this and am very happy with it. Straight out of the box and connected to my Windows 8 PC, I was ripping CDs almost immediately. Compact, stylish and a doddle to set up, I can highly recommend this fantastic piece of kit.

I wanted something to watch region 1 DVD's on with out changing the code on my laptop connected to tv. Changed the region code on this to 1, plugged it into laptop and can now watch my region 1's without any hassle. Also use it for software installs on notebook without DVD drive. Ticks all the boxes for less than £21 - excellent value...
