Inexpensive Choice

Plug and play; reasonable speed for size and price. Does not burn my memorex DL discs. It dies on the second layer. I need to find a brand of discs that works with it. Had no problem with single layer though. Also needs its own USB cable. I was swapping around cables for some external hard drives and I plugged the wrong USB cable back into it - the drive wouldn't read any discs. Not sure what is so special about the cable, but keep that in mind. Other than that, it's a lot cheaper than getting Apple's external drive for the newer iMacs.

Cheap, works well.

Works properly with my Macs (OSX 10.6 thru 10.9). Even gets power from an older MacBook without issue. Only downside is the shiny "piano black" surface; to avoid fingerprints I simply left the thin plastic (factory applied) "skin" in place. I've bought a number of these units for clients who have moved to the newest Macs without built-in optical drives.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  is it compatible with windows 8? How to download driver to play with windows 8?
CHERYL L  I did not have an issue with setting up the drive on a windows 8 machine. I purchased the drive because my new windows 8 laptop had no DVD drive in it. I do not recall if I needed to download a win 8 driver, but I can say that it was an easy install on a win 8 machine.
JIMMY B  im thinking about this purchase to load my new pc's up with microsoft office. the 11.5 does not have cd drive. will this work for the application i am speaking about?
Andrew R  As long as the PCs in question are compatible, then yes, this unit should perform your desired task.
JIMMY B  DOES THIS SLIM DVD COME WITH USB CABLES?
ALPAY D  yes and Works perfect:)
