This is a great product, and the cheapest external writer I could find. Delevery was reasonable, three days. Curiously, it comes with 2 usb cables. One for data, the other for power. I soon discovered that I only needed to connect the data cable, the unit draws power through that. I had a few failed burns while using windows built in disc writing software, so I advise you to use a dedicated program such as Nero, as this offers 'buffer underrun protection'. I use mine with my netbook. It slips nicely into my bag and I just pull it out when I need it. An all round quality product. Nice and small. Would deffinatly reccomend.

I bought this to replace the broken DVD CD R/RW drive on my ancient laptop and it does just what it says on the tin. I'm running XP, I used the power and data connections into the USB ports and it worked straight out of the box. It's a neat unit, a fairly sturdy thing. Packaging and delivery were fine. Great price, thank you.

Great item, especially for the price - I wouldn't use the word "cheap" because that doesn't do the item justice. Instead I'll say it's outstanding value. No frills attached but does the job perfectly.

This item is cost effective and very efficient. Lightweight, works well and is extremely convenient. I would highly recommend this item - especially if you are somebody who doesn't know much about computers and is wondering what to get that works and doesn't require you to have a wide range of computer skills.

A compact USB 2 DVD Player/Reader/Writer for computer/lap top which arrived promptly and fitted through the letterbox (so no need to wait in for the postman). I have so far only used it to play dvds on my small lap top (Windows Vista), using the Windvd programme that came with the laptop, and it works very well. Remember to have your computer connected to the internet when you first plug in the USB 2 connections as the computer may need to download the drivers if you have not used something like this before - it's "Plug and Play" which means you just let the computer get on with it. Then I needed to find the drive which on my lap top is shown as the "f drive" when you click on "Computer" in the "Start Menu". Then you click on "f drive" and then choose to play it on the Wyndvd programme from the menu along the top bar.
Works a treat and very good for such a low price. I bought this primarily to upgrade the lap top from Vista to Windows 7 using the DVD upgrade programme I've already got - hope to do that soon.
Recommended if all you need is something low price that works ok with the player programmes you already have installed.

The product is as described and is slim and light so easy to carry as an external drive. ideal for notebook or small laptop. had to download codec for dvd play on pc, but plays dvds and cds well. Only downside due to its size and being so lightweight, am not sure how durable and long lasting it will be. doubt it would withstand being dropped for example but if care is taken a nice compact devise. well priced and seems to be one of the few in that pricerange that both plays cd's and dvs's as well as burns. Ideal

The internal drive on my Macbook would no longer read DVD nor burn CD so I was looking for a much cheaper solution to a replacement internal drive. Found this and ordered it. Plugged it in (USB power lead not required) and problem solved. OS X 10.6 installed without a hitch and CDs burnt, just a simple issue of selecting the drive from the iTunes dialogue box. Well pleased with both the drive and the service from the supplier.

It plays DVDS and CDS as wells as imports CDs on to my iMac 10.7.6. I have the choice of putting my CDs or DVDs into the side of my IMac or the USB 2.0 Slim DVD CD R/ RW Drive by putting lead in the back and importing my CDs into iTunes as a spare accessory. This brings two alternatives. Glad it is suitable iMac 10.7.6 the model before 10.8 which doesn't have a slot in side for the CDs and DVDs. Good news is it suitable for the side of laptops for windows media to download your MP3 music for your mp3 player. A basic CD and DVD player.
