The DVD writer's compact size makes it the perfect portable accessory for both Mac and PC users.
Compatible with both Mac and PCs alike, the External Slim DVD Writer is designed specially for on-the-go netbook and laptop users. It weighs less than a pound and measures a mere 5.5 x 6.2 x .75 inches (WxLxH). It takes up about as much space as a few CD or DVD disks.
The External Slim DVD Writer is USB powered, which means you don't have to carry any cumbersome power adapters or cords. Simply plug the drive into an available USB port on your computer, and you're ready to go. It also features an easy-access tray loading drive with a manual eject button, which allows you to eject your disks even when the drive is powered off.
High-Performance, High-Speed Writing Abilities
Thanks to the drive's Buffer Under Run Technology, you won't suffer buffer under-run, which occurs in high-speed writing when the speed is faster than the data transfer. Because of this technology, you can continue to multi-task on your computer while the data is being written on the drive, thus improving your productivity. Buffer Under Run Technology also enables high-speed writing in low performance PCs.
The drive boasts many other performance-enhancing features, including including SAT (Speed Adjustment Technology); TAC (Tilt Actuator Compensation) and Double OPC (Optimum Power Control). In addition, Magic Speed and ABS (Automatic Ball Balancing System) technologies reduce vibration and noise.
The External Slim DVD Writer supports 8X write speeds for a wide array of DVD disks, including DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, and DVD-ROM. It also supports DVD+R DL and DVD-RW at a 6X write speed, and DVD-RAM at 5X. For CD compatibility, the drive offers a 24X write speed for CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-ROM.
Nero Software Suite Included
To enhance your CD and DVD burning capabilities, the External Slim DVD Writer comes with Nero Software Suite, which includes NERO Burning ROM, NERO Showtime, and PowerDVD. Integrated firmware offers automatic updates to keep the performance of the drive optimized.

Complaint- This drive does not come with a program to watch dvds, I had to pay extra just to do so.
Answer- This just an external drive. It will work with your current media software. The DVD industry licenses the coding to read DVDs and so it is generally not given away free with products. It does come with Nero which is a great DVD/CD Burning program. The program has a trial for DVD watching with the option to buy. There are free codecs that you can download also to accomplish this. Head on over to [...]
Complaint- The drive only opens a 1/2 inch, there is something wrong with it.
Answer- Actually this is a power saving feature and keeps it slim line. This Drive is powered completely by your computer, and is designed for netbook use. It slides open easily with your finger. When the drive is not being used, it shuts down and does not draw power.
Complaint- The drive does not open when the power is off like the description says
Answer- Actually it does. There is a small hole on the front of the drive where a paper clip can be inserted. This will pop the drive open and allow you to access your disc.
I hope this helps clear the water a bit. All in all I am much happier with the product that I thought I would be. In fact since getting it for my net book, the DVD drive on my home computer died and I have just been using this one instead.
Installation wasn't an issue at all, why??? Because it is a MAC !!! ;) I've just plugged the USB cables (2 of them give a better performance, not a big deal for me to use 2 USB ports on my MacbookPro) and it started working in seconds !
I can read and write CDs and DVDs perfectly. (or copy stuff from internal drive to this external drive or vice-versa at the same time.) It automatically chooses to read DVDs by using DVD player software already installed in all MACs. Briefly you do not need any single thing to achieve what you want from an external CD/DVD drive. I didn't even have to show my Toast Titanium burner software that there's is a new external drive connected. It recognized it immediately !
My intention was to be able to use both Region 1 DVDs (for US) and Region 2 DVDs (for Europe) without worrying to change the region of my actual MAC's drive. Because it was only going to allow me 2 more times (out of 5) to change the drive's region. I'm a grad student in US, but my home country is in Europe, so this solution definitely worked for me perfect. The coolest thing is of course its price ! It is really an affordable piece of creature if we think about its abilities..
One more thing, it is really so small that you can put it in your laptop bag and enjoy it everywhere you go..
Thanks to Samsung & Amazon !
The drive itself is VERY small, and I don't see how they could make one any smaller. Aesthetically it looks great. It came with one cable, with an interesting design. It has two regular USB plugs, which BOTH connect to a single mini-usb plug. You plug in both USB plugs to your laptop, and plug the other end into your laptop, and you're good to go.
Obviously this would pose a problem if you only have 1 usb port on a side, because the cord is not long enough to reach around. In the manual they show a picture of using an extension usb cord to reach the other side. I haven't tried this using only one plug, because I knew ahead of time I had two side-by-side usb ports I could use. The cord itself is quite short also, so expect to have the dvd drive less than a foot away.
I used it to burn recovery disks for my Acer, but haven't done any "speed" tests, but I didn't buy it for that purpose.
It's small, light, looks nice, and doesn't need a separate power cord!
