5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, slim, and not too loud - simply works, May 10, 2012
This review is from: ASUS External Slim 8X DVD-RW Stylish Cut Design Optical Drive SDRW-08D2S-U/BLK/G/AS (Personal Computers)
This ASUS USB DVD external optical drive performs like those of the internal DVD drives like the Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black). It is also very quiet, performs quickly, has a stylish design, and is slim.

Features
+ 2 foot USB cord
+ Opening has the same mechanism as laptop DVD drives

The Good
* Quiet
* Slim
* Very cool checkered pattern
* Stylish black glossy shiny finish
* Performs like those of internal DVD drives in terms of speed and power
* My Windows 7 64 bit system read it immediately

The not so good, but is tolerable
- As I had mentioned, the opening is the same as laptop drives, in which it springs out and requires you to pull out the whole tray. No big deal. If the tray opened automatically, it would compromise the slim build of the drive

Overall, this drive is as close as it gets to an internal DVD drive/writer. The convenience, performance, and reliability is top notch.
