  • from Toronto, ON

Its small, light, quiet, cheap and best of all it works good. Definitely worth it.

  • from Osoyoos, BC

Works well

Good value. Works well with a Windows 10 Transformer book. Transfers files and plays DVDs like it was an internal drive.

  • from Stockholm, Sweden

Where can I find a driver to Samsungs DVD.

It's very difficult to find a driver to my Samsung Ultra Thin DVD writer SE-208. Samsung doesn't have it. So, don't lose your driver to your Samsung DVD. You will regret it.

Great product for the price. Can't tell it was a refurb.

  • from Regina, SK

  • from Whitby, ON

It rocks !

Amazing product for the price. It works with Windows plug and play, no drivers needed. Reads all my old CDs perfectly! Condition of the unit was such that I would not be able to tell it's refurbished. Absolutely mint and spotless. Worth every penny. Delivery was ultra fast too.

  • from Cranbrook, BC

Great little device!

Easy to plug and play. Great little device. Exactly what I needed when my on board DVD drive went. Nothing to dislike

  • from Vancouver BC


I bought this to go with my iMac Pro and all I had to do was to plug it in. It's super easy to use, light, slim and perfectly fine for me.

  • from Quasar Island B.C.

not really a Samsung product

This unit comes with a DVD for windows but nothing For a MAC nor is there any help available on-line making running the device a matter of guess work and trial and error. It has Samsung's name on it but is not made by or supported by them so no help from them.
