    My son received an ASUS laptop for Christmas. However, he was disappointed because of the lack of disk drive. I purchased the ASUS external drive for less than $40 and he couldn't be happier. The USB connection and lightweight design is perfect for travel.

    There is no easy way to load legacy software onto the ASUS transformer without this external DVD drive. It works well, however, your ASUS MUST be plugged in to a power source.

    The ASUS external drive works as expected and the brushed metal look is nice. The tray is rather slim, so not the best for clumsy adults or kids.

    we have two laptops at my house and this has been great for both of them. The one laptop (a Samsung) does not have a working cd/dvd drive and this has been extremely helpful in keeping it running while my brand new Asus did not come with an optical drive and this drive has been great. It does require 2 usb ports, and that's the only thing that I did not like about it

    Asus have a killer product here. Looks really nice. Seems like a router. Most people would not be able to tell it's an external DVD drive.

    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.

    This product was purchased to expand my Asus laptop capability. It is light weight yet rugid enough to travel. I watch many movies while traveling or laying around the house and the portability works for me. I can install new software and updates when needed as well. I would recomend to anyone wanting to upgrade without paying a fortune.

    NOT Compatible with Windows 8 & NO Stand

    I am VERY dissatisfied with this purchase. I originally purchased this item from Amazon for $23.99. Returned it because it DID NOT have a stand. I saw this one for $29.99, and used the "CHAT NOW" option to speak with a sales rep, and he told me that they do have a stand (as pictured on the site 2x) and yes, it is Windows 8 Compatible (Also LABELED on the box); and NEITHER of these statements were true. I went to the ASUS website in hopes of getting the correct driver, but no luck...looks like it only goes up to Windows Vista. I couldn't use the CD that came with the drive; so I used another computer to extract the CD contents and uploaded to my Windows 8; and the content has a huge glitch. Spoke to the sales rep at Best Buy, they told me to call Bestbuy.com 1-888-237-8289; which the first time I called, they hung up on me; 2nd time I called, talked to them for 37 minutes, and they tell me to go to the store to troubleshoot this issue, or return the product. I want this to work, because I like the look of the ASUS SDRW-08D2S-U... My experience is NOT good. False advertisement, bad customer service. VERY UNHAPPY with Best Buy and Bestbuy.com

    I bought this optical drive online from Best Buy as when I went to the store they were selling poorer quality ones for over $50+. I ordered it to be delivered to my house as I had some huge issues with ordering delivered to store. This delivery came roughly about the time they told me. The feel and quality of this drive is amazing. It looks awesome with the diamond feel and look to it. The ASUS logo is also great. It is fast and for the price, it is great. The one concern I have about it is the stand that I saw in the picture online. There is no stand. This isn't a huge problem, all I have to do is set it parallel and it works just fine.
