I've had Asus, I've had LG, and they are good products, and served me well. But this baby is so sleek, and so quiet, and the drawer action is so smooth, it feels very high-end for a very reasonable price.

I've never had any problem with any Transcend product (flash drive, memory card, RAM) and hope to enjoy a long and pleasant relationship with my new burner.

Must Have Two USB Ports to Work Properly March 12 2015
By Burt Heacock - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Product comes with two USB connectors, but my computer only has one. The purpose of the second connector is to provide additional power to the unit. With one USB connected it will read and write files, but it will not play a DVD movie.
Perfection! April 15 2015
By Mia Guzman - Published on Amazon.com

I was pleasantly surprised with this item! I had been searching for a portable dvd drive for my macbook air and didn't know which one to go with. I borrowed my father's a few times before (he has one by Transcend in black). The one I received is thinner than the one my father has which I love because it's not as bulky! It is extremely lightweight and looks lovely with my macbook air :) Many people mentioned the drive only works if you plug in both USB cables. Based on those reviews, I would not have made a purchase, but since I had borrowed my father's in the past, I knew this was not true. I don't know if it has to do with the macbook model, but i have the 11'' macbook air and it works perfectly when I plug in the longer usb!

The only disappointment with this item was that the usb wiring is black, not white - but that's obviously not a deal breaker, just me being particular!

Besides that, everything works as advertised!! I definitely recommend this product!!
and is easy to use - just plug & play Nov. 18 2014

This drive works as intended, and is easy to use - just plug & play. My one major gripe with it, however, is the fact that both USBs need to be plugged into your computer in order for it to work - and the cable is very short. Since I don't have two USB ports right next to each other on my laptop (one on the right, one on the left, and one in the back), I ended up having to buy a USB extension to make this drive work for me. I imagine this won't be an issue for most people as most computers have two adjacent USB ports. However, for my Acer Aspire V5, no two ports are within reaching distance of this cable. I like having the USB extension I bought as a result of this so no major loss, but had I known this would be an issue I probably would not have purchased this drive.

Great Drive Aug. 14 2013
By NCarmody - Published on Amazon.com

For the price this is a great drive. I have used it with both PC and Mac with no issues. However the supplied software only runs on pc. The included software is not needed to use the drive.
