I bought the Samsung SE-208 as a replacement for a DVD player I had been using for my netbook which had gone bust. It is light, looks good and works very well. On the other hand it does not appear to be very sturdy, with most of it appearing to be made of plastic. The other thing that struck me is that the player requires two USB ports, presumably due to power requirements. This isn't something I have come across before- I don't really mind, but the USB plugs only have an inch of cable between them and unless you have two side-by-side USB ports you will need an extension.
My machine has not yet seen a huge ammount of use, and as you will have gathered from my thoughts above my views so far are mixed. Personally of all the concerns I have, the one that bothers me most is durability. My netbook sees a lot of travel so time will tell if this machine will last.
