External DVD with slimline qualities
Member Name: tangoman84
Advantages: Great look, light weight, small size, simple to setup and use
With my wife having dropped her laptop it came time for me to get her a new one (she asks me to help her with technical purchases) and so having looked about I came to find the Samsung SE-S084D in pink which I knew she would simply love so I decided to spend the £50 I found this for which included delivery (this is likely to be cheaper now as I did order this a few months back) but how happy has she been with this purchase?
This is an external dvd drive that is very simple to setup. It comes with a single cable from the drive itself which has two USB heads to it (one for power and one for information transfer) so you simple plug this in and if your computer is fairly new then it will automatically detect the drive and all is ready to go.
The drive is a nice looking piece of kit which comes in a number of colours including black, white, pink, red, grey and more.
The unit is smaller than a normal external dvd drive (13.7 cm x 14.6 cm x 1.7 cm to be exact on its dimensions) and thanks to its shape it makes it one of the most easy ones to transport around with you as it will simply slip into a laptop bag (front pocket for example) with the cable and this is you ready to go.
The unit is not just small but also very light at just 270g so makes it a very portable piece of kit.
The drive itself offers up a good speed of read and also write for both dvd's and cd's meaning that even with the convenience you are having thanks to the size and weight of this you will not lose out on the quality of technical abilities available to those on a standard drive.
From a name you can trust in Samsung so you are going to get what you pay for with this and it is a piece of kit you can expect to last.
The drive is a quiet drive whether doing read or write and so you can plug this in and let it get on with things without it bothering you too much.
Purchased for my wife but myself who had to set this up the first time of use I was very impressed with how simple it all was. The drive looks very good and if you go for the pink option it is a very bright and vibrant shade. Light weight and small size make this a very impressive disk drive that makes it somewhat unique in the market. I have to highly recommend this as it offers up the same level of performance as other drives out there but then adds these little extra bonuses of the size and weight (not to mention look).
Summary: A great little, lightweight drive that looks great and offers up the quality you expect from Samsung
