5.0 out of 5 stars CD writer 13 Oct 2013
By babs48
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Having recently purchased a new laptop without an internal CD/DVD player, I needed to buy an external one so that i could upload/download photos, music etc. The choice was enormous, but I decided to go for a make I was familiar with, and a medium priced product. It is easy to use, and so far has proved a good buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor manufacture? 6 Jan 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Good news: very neat, immediate recognition by iMAC, read disc OK
Bad news: eject mechanism faulty from start. Mechanism worked OK with no disc present, but would not eject if disc in tray. Tried several discs, same result each time: had to resort to paperclip in "emergency eject" hole each time. Even then, wasn't keen to give up the disc!
Returned to Amazon, no problem there. Trusting it's a one-off, have ordered a different model Samsung as replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic but efficient 6 Jan 2014
By Cheshire Cat TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Needed for a new Windows 8 laptop that didn't have an optical drive, this USB powered DVD reader/writer worked straight out of the box in true plug and play fashion. Burning was no issue. (software supplied but we used that already installed on the laptop) and it also happily worked on a 2013 iMac.

Aesthetics are naturally complementary to the current range of Samsung laptops and reasonably pleasing to the eye if a little prone to finger marks which however can be easily wiped clean.

If you want Bluray, look elsewhere but for normal ancillary DVD use, this fitted the bill perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful DVD writer 13 April 2014
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
I bought this for two reasons: to download a programme from discs which needed a DVD drive and also to download photos from discs I have which my old computer would not acknowledge. Once I downloaded them I've also transferred them to flash drives.

I've just been buying a new computer which is an all-in-one which has no tower - all the workings are in the base of the monitor. It is so neat and the DVD writer matches the base. It has a type of sateen finish about it and looks very stylish. All I did was plug it in and I was ready to go.

Would almost certainly recommend this.

I was too fast pressing BUY button. This does not work with Galaxy 10.1 2014 edition. Should have paused and read the possibilities of the tablet first.

Cannot fault the unit as regards recording but the eject mechanism is so cheap and flimsy I worry about its durability. It is however compact, neat and looks fine.
