Worked ok and looked pretty, but it requies 2 USB ports for power which wasn't clear from the description. I only have 3 ports on my new laptop so I returned it.

HASH(0x95699384) out of 5 stars Works with both platforms; but BEST match for a Mac so far for me! 22 Jan. 2015
By ---- John D - Published on Amazon.com
I own an iMac. Therefore no internal DVD drive. I have gone through two other externals and found that they each came with a set of problems. I was in a non Mac computer store the other day and told the head service guy (and a friend) I was getting fed up. In his opinion he felt there was never going to be an eternal that could beat an internal period. He may be right.

Then he said, "I know you bought a Mac and most of the leading brands say they are compatible; on the box." He said, " there's compatible and there's COMPATIBLE." He informed me; in his opinion I should go to Asus. He felt they were more compatible with a Mac than any other; so I have purchased the Asus Ultra Drive. Didn't want to spend a fortune so I went with the 8X version; not the 12X

It is the S O R W - 0 8 U 5 S - U

You can lay it down horizontally or stand it up. So far it has burnt a blank CD faster than the two others and was able to tie tracks from a problem CD that the others could not. Full discolour here. It says in the info that came with it to plug it directly into the computer and not a hub; in order to get more power. I confess that so far I am still using a hub.
