I feel 'short' changed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LiteOn ETAU108-02 8x USB 2.0 Slim Top-Load External DVDRW - Black (Accessory)
Just unpacked this and sorry about this LiteOn but no matter how good your device is I am giving it 2 stars due to the supplied cable. I did read another review that mentioned a short cable but I was not prepared for how short the supplied cable is - it's just short of 21 cm!!!! Now what this means is that no matter where your USB ports are the device will not sit anywhere for convenient use. If your USB ports are at the back of your machine you will have to position the device just behind your machine. If you have side USB ports on a portable the device will have to sit somewhere to the side sitting at an inconvenient angle for proper use. What is even more frustrating is that the instructions say that you can use your own cable - well at least that sounds like a solution - until you discover that the maximum length is 40cm. Better but not by much - why didn't they at least supply this length of cable.
It better be a good performer or it is going straight back in the box!

Choose a longer cable that's not too thin and I think you're unlikely to have any problems.
