  • Piece of Garbage - So disgusted with this
    Reviewed by Trevor - May 12, 2021

    I have dual boot Linux/Windows on my computer. This DVD writer won't work with either operating system. I plug in one USB and it doesn't work. The instruction book says to plug in the second USB if to give it more power if it doesn't work with just one. I tried that, It still doesn't work. The instruction book then says to buy a power cord (at extra cost) if it won't work with both USB's plugged in. What garbage! It might work with one USB, might work with 2. Maybe it'll work with an extra power cord. Maybe I'll find out that it doesn't after more spending more money. This is a horrible product. There are so many DVD that you just plug in and they work. Don't buy this. Complete garbage!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Not as advertised

    This is supposed to be compatible with MAC computers OS 10.10 and up. My MAC won't recognize it. The supplementary instruction leaflet is inadequate. I'm returning it.

  • Bought it today, taking it back tomorrow
    Reviewed by Digger - July 3, 2019

    My iMac is only 4-5 months old & works like a gem except it doesn't want to recognize this drive. I tried following the directions to a "T" and it just wouldn't work.

  • ASUS ZenDrive U9M 8x External USB-C DVD-RW Writer - Silver Review
    Reviewed by D,O. - May 2, 2019

    The ASUS ZenDrive U9M 8x External USB-C DVD-RW Writer was a saviour for me. My DVD drive for my Mac Book Pro was broken. Excellent performance so far. The picture is so much better.

  • Junk & did NOT work.
    Reviewed by Randal - April 4, 2021

    Right out of the box, put a cd in made clicking noises, no play and took 10 min to eject it. Yes... returned it. They make excellent laptops (I have one) but NOT these.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
