Picked this up yesterday at the local store.
Very disappointed that there was no stand.
Chose this model because of space saving stand.
Saw reviews on other sites where buyers complained of no stand, despite picture of stand.
Otherwise,so far does what I expected, which is replace non-functioning Laptop DVD.
Seems a bit flimsy, its a laptop DVD player in a case.
Have not installed software yet.
Note: requires 2 side by side USB ports, you will need an extension if you have a mac.
Whoever designed this was probably out of touch with the real world. Macs have 2 USBs on 2 different sides of the laptop. This drive comes with a USB cable which they call Y cable. It has 2 USB connetions on 1 side that is supposed to connect to 2 USB ports at the same time to power up the drive. But Macs don't have 2 adjacent USB ports, which makes this drive, usless for Macs.
Don't buy it!
Was recommended by the store employee who obviously buys cheap things and has no taste. Have to be extremely careful putting a cd in or you'll bust it. Software is older than my first computer. Basically looks like a 5 yr old designed it for kids. It's as quiet as a freight train just remember to move your car out of your driveway or it will get run over. The star scale should go into the minus cause this is where this beauty belongs. Junk.
Quite working after 3 months. Disappointing!
Bought it in store and received it in 3 days via express mail. Looks neat but doesn't burn disc at all. the software came with the burner is outdated! encountered "Unknown Error" per dialogue! I'm going to return it today! Don't waste your money and effort on this item!
i was told this product would play DVDS-it does not-returned this product
This drive packed it in 6 months after I purchased it. Burnt 2 discs and installed software from disc maybe 8 times.
Do not waste your money! This drive is very loud and didn't even last a year with very minor use. There are better drives for half the price. Junk!!
I have no idea what the others are talking about. First of all, yes the drive has a cable with 2 USB ends (one for data and power, the second only for power), but that is irrelevant. I did not even use that cable. The dvd drive works happily off a single USB of my macbook air with a normal USB mini cable that I had laying around. I am using OSX El Capitain 10.11.4, and I was able to play the contents of my audio CDs, rip them through iTunes and write some random files on a CD-RW without installing a single piece of additional software.
The drive is kind of noisy. But I can forgive that as it looks nice next to my Asus router which has the same pattern engraved on top as this dvd drive :) This is a short term review.
Basically, the optical drive was easy to install. However, I could not play any of my DVDs. I had to download VLC media player to play my DVDs.
It says it is Mac compatible but not for desktop. Tried installing on work PC and did not work after reloading software twice. Garbage
I've had this drive for a while and it has never been reliable. Eighty ercent of the time it couldn't connect to my computer or detect the disks I put in. Not worth the money. It also requires two USB ports for power. After two years, it's useless, and I have to buy another.
WORKS GREAT WITH WINDOWS 10 DOES EVERYTHING I NEED PLAYS MOVIES AND RUNS WILL
This external player is pretty much useless if you have a macbook air. There is a dual-usb cord in it that needs to be plugged into TWO ports on your mac book air. And the cord is only about 3 inches long….so you can't plug it into both ports on your computer, since the ports are on opposite sides of the computer.
you will need to buy an extension cable in order for it to work.
This plays DVD movies well. For those reviews that say it can't play dvd movies, you need to download a dvd playing software, such as VLC media player, as windows 8.1 and 10 does not come with one preinstalled.
It worked well with my iMac pro (which does not have a Disc drive) as soon as it was connected, but does not want to work with my Acer with Windows 10. Will try again. It's better to use the computer system eject button rather than the Disc tab. The whole case seems rather flimsy,but with careful use, should be OK. Satisfied with the purchase for the price
I found the unit easy to install and it's just perfect for my purpose.
Windows 10 worked perfectly with it.
This drive worked well in reading and installing software, but cannot play movie DVDs on my new Dell Inspiron laptop. After failing to auto play, I tried to open the DVD manually from the computer browser, no success! I noticed this in reviews, but the sales person said this does not make sense, so I got it. Now I have to return and go with other drives! Also, it does not come with the vertical stand shown in the manual and websites!
I use the DVD drive with my small laptop. It is perfect for loading programs and burning disks. Works very well. I would recommend it.
It doesn't read dvd movie title with dell inspiron with 8.1
I paid about half the listed price on sale and believe it is a good buy at tha and price.
I used it in win 8.1 and Linux Mint and it worked fine. It comes with a duel usb for extra power but it worked with a single connection on an old netbook and a new ECS Liva from a powered USB hub.
It is not particularly sturdy, so if you expect to give it hard use, I would look for another device.
Nice unit but not reliable. Does not read DVD's well at all.
Won't detect on brand new Dell laptop with Windows 8
Just as advertised. Works well, easy to set up and use all in a nice small package. Which is good if you have to carry around with your laptop that doesn't have a drive. Wish it was USB 3. Nothing fancy but gets the job done... and good for the value. Let's see if it lasts and is durable.
I originally bought to make a collection of music for my Mom's 70th B'day and turned out great. Easy to use, the stand is irrelevant and am now burning music for all my friends. Love the fact can order online and delivered free to my home!
Works well. Easy to install. Relatively quiet drive when in use.
I'm a bit disappointed that the drive did not come with the stand that is pictured. There isn't even a slot for a stand to snap on to. It's as if a stand was never designed for this drive. The included instructions even shows how to attach and detach the stand. I know it's not an older model because the sticker on the bottom of the drive states that it was built on Aug. 2014 and the drive was purchased Nov. 2014. It's not a huge deal but a bit disappointing as I have a small work area and was anticipating the stand to free up space. If it's not a big deal to you, the drive is fine.
It's nice when you buy a product and it does exactly what it says it does and doesn't give you problems. I bought it, I used it (burned a few DVDs), it works, I like it.
Great value. Bought it for my MacBook Air and works great. Highly recommend if looking for something for occasional use and not very expensive.
Excellent product. Works extremely well, quiet and very reliable.
