    All in all, can't beat this deal, we paid less than $35, but the plastic housing has me worried, hopefully it holds up under more use. So far has seen light duty only, and is doing great, but more extensive use coming soon as I back up more photos to hard copies.

    This drive was very simple to set up and does not require its own power supply, just two USB ports. It has been very helpful since my laptop did not come with a disc-drive. I haven't had any problems with it.

    This drive is simple. It just works. Very quiet and only uses 1 USB port on my MacBook pro.

    Works just as it should. Our new laptop didn't have a cd-rom and we needed to install a program that came on a cd. It was easy to set up and installed the software without any issues.

    I've used this for about a month, with no problem, frustration, or worry. The drive was easy to install & setup & is easy to use. I save accounting documents & files with ease & speed. This drive is well worth the price & recommend it to others.

    ASUS External DVD Drive

    Inexpensive and easy to use. Bought the ASUS T100 and needed an external drive. This drive paired perfectly. Just plugged and it played. No external power needed for the drive. Light and compact.

    1ST OF ALL A LOT OF COMPANIES USE ONE PHOTO FOR THEIR PRODUCTS. BUT NOT ALL PRODUCTS HAVE THE SAME FEATURES. IT'S STANDARD PRACTICE. EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NO STAND FOR DRIVE. THIS IS A AWESOME DRIVE. IT'S PLUG AND PLAY. VERY EASY TO USE. WHEN MY DVD DRIVE IN MY PC WENT I TRIED SERVAL DIFFERENT DRIVES. NOTHING WORKED TIL I BOUGHT THIS ONE. BUT THIS ONE YOU'LL BE VERY HAPPY YOU DID.

    A MUST HAVE

    Got this Asus Slim External Optical Drive for the new Asus 2-in-1 14" i5 126 ssd laptop I bought for my niece. This device is beautiful! Nice diamond design & it has a high gloss finish. On the Best Buy website, this drive is shown with a stand. There is no stand included in the box. This device comes with a Y usb power connector, which one usb connects to the device & the other 2 usb plug in to you laptop/computer- it's a must to connect both usb to the computer or else this device will not work properly. Inserted the setup cd that came with the device & followed the simple setup instructions. A "Setup Complete" dialog will pop up when it's done. Setup took less than 5 minutes. I inserted a music cd to test it - no problem. The only challenge I have right now is to get the new laptop to play movie dvds. I was told that to be able to do this, I have to download an app. I like this drive, even though at first look it looks like an art piece. It is also very light compared to my older external optical drive. But it works just as well, so i'm very glad I got this good looking drive. i'm sure my niece will like this drive & will be playing & burning dvds & cds with it.
