    Just as Reviewers reported on your website, "This CD burner works well with Apple Computers!" I have 8 new recordings to prove my success. Thank you!

    I got this to be able to add programs to or watch dvd's on my computer that does not have a cd/dvd drive. It was very easy to install and did just what I wanted. I have only used it to install 2 programs so far so I have not used it a lot but s far so good.

    Would recommend. It was easy to set-up. Instructions a little vague but still easy.

    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.

    I got a new IMAC and was looking for an external CD drive and didn't want to pay $80 for one (Apple's option). I looked around and this was the cheapest on that I've seen and by a brand the I trust - ASUS. It was a piece of cake to install and I've burned a few CDs, ripped a few DVDs, and installed some software onto my imac. I've yet to have an issue. works great and at a low cost.

    Where's the STAND?

    I bought this to provide DVD/CD support for my Toshiba Satellite Radius laptop. I don't really know if it's a necessity, since most programs are downloadable, but I have some old software that might work on the new PC. I haven't set it up yet because the STAND shown on the Best Buy website isn't in the box and the store doesn't know how to get the STAND. I sent ASUS an email and am awaiting an answer. The installation manual says the STAND is optional. If I can't get the STAND, I probably don't want the External DVD-RW.
