Good Price for a Good Drive
Member Name: thedarkfighter
Advantages: Small, light, USB powered
Disadvantages: Read Only
This drive was bought for my Mum's netbook so we could use it to install a few things we had around. First thing to note is the build quality. Although not bombproof, the drive certainly won't break unless you try to make it do so. The drive is surprisingly quiet! i was expecting it to be quite loud but it sounded like a standard internal DVD drive does. The lack of need for a power supply was a big reason for investing in this model and in that respect it definately didn't disappoint. The performance of the drive is still a reasonable speed even though just powered by the USB ports. The Linux computer we plugged it into also had no problem recognising the drive which is a fear I had. Windows also recognised it fine although I have not tested it with my iMac. If you are looking for a sleek, compact, light and easy to use external DVD drive this is probably the best you will get for read only.
Summary: Amazing for the price! I'd reccomend it to anyone!
