Pros

Attractive diamond pattern.
Recommended to not clunk up your computer with internal drive.
Goes on sale
Cons
Does not come with stand as shown in picture.
only USB 2.0

Pros

reads dvds
Cons
only USB 2.0
Summary
Use it often and it still works great. Only downside is that it is USB 2.0

Pros

Small
Slim
Self-powered
Works on Windows, Mac and Linux without drivers
Nice finish
Cons
Clunky USB Y-cable requires two USB ports
No stand
Slow
Summary
It does what it says in the description quite nicely.

It has the current ASUS "diamond pattern" attractive design. It's small and slim, powered off the USB bus. It's plug-and-play on Windows, Mac and Linux. I tested speeds using Linux dd and the included utilty CD, it's not terribly fast - 1.6 MB/s, that's between 10X and 12X. Writing an .ISO to a DVD+RW took place at 3.3X, 4474 KiB/s - that's 4.37 MB/s. Again not terribly impressive but if you want speed you shouldn't be looking at optical media anyway. The important thing is that it works fine and is fast enough.

These speeds were the same on USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, with one of the USB plugs connected or two. Incidentally I find the USB Y-cable arrangement clunky and cumbersome.

It doesn't have a stand as shown in the picture.

For how many times I use an optical drive, this works just fine.

Pros

Small
No A/C adapter required
Cons
None
Summary
This was an excellent external DVD drive, it can connect through two USB ports, but will run on one. I would recommend this product.

Pros

- Small and attractive
- Comes with software
- Portable
Cons
- USB Cord is not long enough
Summary
Asus has never disappointed me and this drive is no surprise; it's classic Asus quality. It has a classy shiny diamond plate finish to it and comes with burning software (CyberLink Power 2Go). I haven't yet ventured into burning a disc, but will within the next few days as required. The only initial improvement I would have liked from this product is a longer USB cable. I would have liked to have placed this drive on my desk for easier access but it will not reach. It is sitting currently on the top of my PC tower and will be fine there, but a longer cable would give the user a little more freedom of use. For the record it did not come with the stand in the display picture, but it does indicate on the packaging the stand is "optional". This is a great drive for someone looking for a portable drive for an Ultrabook laptop or in my case replacing an PATA/EIDE drive that I can no longer find anywhere for this older desktop. I would recommend this product without hesitation.

Pros

Sleek design. Does what it needs to perfectly
Cons
2 USB 2.0 ports needed for full speed. Short USB cable. Does NOT come with stand as shown in picture and specs.
Summary
Good external dvd/cd drive. The USB cable actually splits into 2 USB ports. It still runs on 1 port plugged in. After some testing, there's a definite performance hit with only 1 plugged in. Even though the PC has USB 3.0 and is capable of supplying the power with just 1 cable, the device itself is USB 2.0 so the PC only supplies 2.0 level of power. It does NOT come with a stand as shown in the picture.

Pros

Small size, No power adapter needed, great to carry along.
Cons
Stand is "Optional".
Summary
Works perfectly so far. I would recommend it, especially for traveling. Small size, No power adapter needed, great to carry along.

Pros

usb powered
linux plug and play (no drivers req.)
Cons
this model does not come with a vertical stand
very short usb cable
akward design
Summary
What's included in the box is the recorder (about the size of a portable CD player), 20 inch long usb cable with dual connectors, CD with burning software.

This writer takes approximately 10 mins to record single layer DVD-R, around 30 mins to fully blank DVD-RW. It is very quiet in operation and can boot from bootable CDs.

The dual usb connectors are supposedly meant to power up the device but I have successfully recorded discs on just a single usb port. It works great on a linux system with Xfburn program.

This particular model does not have a vertical stand. The picture is a lie.
