Real money saver!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung SE-208AB/TSBS 8 x DVD+/-RW Slim Portable External DVD Writer - Black (Accessory)
I bought this USB DVD writer for just over £20 from Amazon because the internal drive in my laptop has failed. To replace the internal one would cost at least double and would mean taking the laptop apart - something I am not confident to do. Although the laptop is nearly five years old it is still not due for complete replacement, so the external USB DVD drive is an ideal solution.
It comes with Nero software (on a CD which might have been difficult to access if the new drive did not work automatically ...).
I plugged in the drive and it was identified immediately and works immediately! No instructions are needed. I installed the Nero software but it works seamlessly with the normal Windows, Roxio and similar programs.
Within minutes of it arriving I had burnt a couple of photo DVDs, and have already burnt several data DVDs. It seems to be working perfectly.
Very pleased with the product, Amazon price, and delivery - I received it within 36 hours, it may have been even quicker but I did not get home until tea time and it was already there.

You can hear it if you try, but it is certainly not intrusive.
