    can't express how happy I am with this piece of equipment. The second you take it out of the box you know you're holding a well constructed, heavy duty piece of computer equipment. Installation was a snap and took less than 1 minute to be up and running. I didn't bother to install the DVD writer software provided as I have a favorite I always use. The software disc also comes with other packages if you choose to use them. But if you already have a DVD burner software you're ready to go the second you plug it into your computer. I burned a DVD first thing. WOW, what a difference in speed than the same speed DVD burner built into my computer. What took me up to 8 minutes to burn in the computer DVD burner took right at 4 with the LG unit. To sum up this purchase, I am ecstatic!

    Review and concern

    This product seems to work just fine. My only concern was that a first accidentally bought an internal drive. The salesperson did not realize that the one I was going to buy was an internal drive and it was not clearly marked, Then I was told I had to physically go to the store where I had purchased it to return it. This was inconvenient as it was, but what if I had been out of town when Ipurchaased it.

    I still burn the occasional CD, so when I bought my new laptop sans CD read/writer I bought this as an external add-on. Readily recognized by the laptop; easy to use. It’s extremely lightweight and thin - makes it easy to carry/store in a laptop case. It is very plasticy - that’s what makes it so lightweight - but that’s also lends to it feeling cheap. It works; that’s the main thing.

    Since laptops often come without optical drives this is a good solution to that problem. Even though much media exists online, optical media still exist. This drive is plug and play and works well.

    Nice basic CD drive which I purchased since I don't have any disc drives at home and I occasionally need it to access programs stored on disk or come in the back of textbooks. It's a bit loud, but it's sleek and light, seems fine in terms of build. Wouldn't call it the best, but if you want something that functions well and is affordable, this is probably a good drive to get. Like it so far.
