4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what it says it is, July 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This cable is precisely what it claims to be - an adapter that allows a cellular phone headset with a 2.5mm connector or an XBox 360 headset to plug into 3.5mm microphone and speaker jacks, such as the ones often found on the front of computers, on USB Sound cards, or on portable video game systems.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good drive, but not without it's flaws., April 3, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The ASUS SDRW-08D2S-U operates well for normal use, but has several flaws. It reads and writes DVD-RAM discs, reads CDs lets you watch DVDs, and takes up very little space.

The drive comes with an extremely short USB 2.0 Y adapter. To operate correctly, this adapter, or a similar one must be used. It must be connected to self-powered hub or directly to ports on a PC. If the adapter is not used, it will appear to be working until a disc is inserted. It may work with some types of disc and not with others, or fail intermittently.

It is a low profile drive and as a result does not have a fully motorized disc tray. The tray opens a small distance automatically using a spring, but must then be pulled out the rest of the way to insert a disc, and then pushed back into the drive. On certain table surfaces, the force needed to push the tray in all the way will push the drive across the table. Attempting to hold the drive in one place by pressing on the top will bend it inward, so it must be held by the sides. This may require two hands for some users.

I have not used the included stand or software, and cannot comment on them.
