      Read the reviews, needed it ti interact with Windows 10, had the 2 ports necessary, would NOT go past the set-up page and after several days of trying it I took it to Best Buy and The Geek Squad guys had a heck of a time getting it to work (which made me feel better, or at least not so inept!) turns out you had to get your cursor about a quarter of an inch AWAY from where you should have it to click to the next step & then the little hand magically appeared!! Don't know if it's a bad disk or??? It also vibrates quite a bit. It is lightweight.

      My new laptop didn't come with an internal DVD drive, so I purchased this model to fill the void. I needed a DVD drive to install some software on my new laptop that was only available on CD. The drive worked well out of the box, and I appreciated that it came with a cord to connect it to the laptop. The drive is lightweight and relatively small, but I can't decide if that makes the unit feel "cheap." I don't have a lot of media on CD, so I likely won't be using it a lot. I MIGHT be concerned about durability if I were using this drive regularly.

      I connected this DVD drive to my new iMac. Worked right away without any issue. No need to install any SW or drivers - supported native by OS X. The only little annoyance is the USB Y cable - you are supposed to connect two USB ports from the Y part of the cable - takes two USB sockets. This is how the setup manual expects you to do it. I tried also with one main port connection and it seems to work, but I did not try to burn DL DVDs yet in this configuration.

      I purchased this to provide DVD data backup discs for a project. I no longer have CD/DVD drives on my Macbooks so there was a need to go external. The drive performed well with no drops or disc errors. It was a little noisy and because of its build (thin plastic) it felt a little "cheap" and flimsy. I would still recommend the drive for any that needs to write to legacy data formats.

      Right from the start had problems with disc ejecting, but waited too long to be able to return to Best Buy...Then stopped working altogether. Don't know if it was the brand or the hardware, but won't buy Verbatim again.

      I started volunteering at a local radio station and needed to be able to download CDs onto my laptop. This purchase was based on a recommendation from my friend who is an IT expert. It's very easy to use and I'm very happy with it.

      I recently purchased a computer online and didn't realize that it did not have an optical drive installed. I purchased this DVD burner for my son. It was plug and play ready. It serves its purpose well.
