It works very well and is very solid feeling for transport.

Portable drive is a perfect companion to Netbooks we gave our grand kids as Christmas gifts.

For a portable drive this one is the best. It's dirt cheap, plays and writes everything except Blu-Ray (who cares). You do not need to load the optional software if you have Windows Vista or 7.

Yes, it does take two USB ports that are side by side to run. How do you close it without crunching it...you just either put your fingers behind it and slide the disc shut or hold it by the sides with one hand and push the drawer back in. No need to press down on the top of it and crush it but you can put a enough pressure up there too without any problem. Yes it's plastic and could be discontorted if you pushed really hard.

While running a movie it is a bit loud sounding like a tiny fan on high speed but nothing that concerned me.

This will run your laptop/netbook battery down more quickly so it's best for movies while the machine is plugged in.

Bottom line. It's meant to be portable, light, and run everything except Blu-Ray. It does exactly that without fail.

Simple and easy to use. Very effective. Highly portable. Like it very much.
Got one of these to use on a desktop that doesn't have a dvd burner. But use it also on my laptop.

This drive did not require effort to get it installed and worked out of the box. My biggest hang up is that it requires 2 USB ports right next to each other. This may hinder some tablet users. It works very well and is very solid feeling for transport.

I am not a computer geek, but this was simple and easy for me to install. Worked great right out of the box. Light weight and compact. Great for playing DVDs and for writing to DVD disks. It requires 2 USB ports which may be an issue for some. If I had to buy again, I would still choose this one.

What can I say, it is a External DVD r/w. That is a given. The drawer is a little touchy, the drive is so light that you have to hold the unit with one hand and push the button with the other. The case is a little thin, so you can not put pressure on top when trying to close, so where do you hold it when you try to close it? Also this is a USB 2.0 Drive, it would be better if it was a 3.0. Response time is not all that great. It does what it is supposed to do.

As the title of my review suggests, I really liked this burner from Toshiba, when it was working correctly. Installation was a breeze, just connect the USB Y-cable to 2 ports and you're ready to go. The first few burns were great, all using the exact same Verbatim media. Then around the 5th burn or so, the burner only allowed me to select 2x burning speed. Using the same media, the next time it allowed me to select up to 8x. This is a seemingly random occurrence and I can't find a reason for it. Also, when I check the burns and backup my media, the program I use will 50/50 allow the dvds burned on this unit to open all way, usually freezing at 99% before throwing up an error. I have used several different burners from Samsung and LG, and this Toshiba is the first to ever give me this problem. It doesn't affect the playability on dvd players, but it does prevent me from backing up dvds created with this burner.
The random burning speed allowed and hit and miss of the readability of the burned discs on my PC offset the positives of a quiet, solidly constructed and reasonably priced dvd burner. I'll stick with the similarly priced but slightly louder Samsung burner.

The drive installed without any problems to my netbook, and runs great. It should be pointed out that two USB slots that are next to each other, are required to run this drive!

Bought at Amazon... was 40% cheaper than at Toshiba's web site ...The DVD Drive is exactly as expected the fact that gets power from the USB is a big plus. Though make sure you have your laptop conected to the electricity or fully charged because it will speed up the rate of consumption... obviously. If you bought this to feed DVDs to netbooks that come without DVD drives.... make sure you do the necesary updates via MicroSoft page.... specially on the W7 starter version. By the way there is no need to pay to anyone or upgrade to a home version or anything... your driver will play movies just by adding a FREE Microsoft service pack.... Enjoy!
