Top customer reviews
It's very portable and it features a tuck-away space embedded on the bottom for the USB cable so I never had to worry about losing it, as long as I remembered to put it away after each use.
The functionality is perfect for Windows 7 and 8 and Windows 10 has no problems recognizing it. iTunes reads it as well.
However, this is a very slow unit. For iTunes, transferring a 10 track CD took over 10 minutes when this is usually accomplished by newer units within a minute or two. The burning rates are similarly slow.
Being over five years old, this is the elder statesman of portable, external CD ROM drives. It has not kept up with contemporary data transfer rates of contemporary units.
There are benefits to this lightweight, compact, easy-to-use unit, but it is important to understand the limitations of this simple product.
I will continue to keep and use it as it has not failed me in three years, but if you're looking for faster data transfer, this is not the unit for you.
