A "must have" accessory for all NetBook users. The SAMSUNG 8X Tray load External Slim DVD Writer is designed to provide the highest quality DVD functionality in a sleek design that is not much larger than the CD/DVD itself. Simply plug it into your USB port and you are ready to watch movies, install software, copy photos, play music or do anything that you desire. Furthermore, this model supports both 12 cm & 8 cm discs. The Manual Disc Eject function can let the disc ejected even when the power is off. The SAMSUNG 8X External Tray Load DVD Writer's Buffer Under Run Technology prevents buffer under run which occurs in high-speed writing when the speed is faster than the data transfer. Because of this technology, multi-tasking is possible while data is being written on the drive, thus improving the user's productivity. Buffer Under Run Technology also enables high speed writing in low performance PCs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Although there is no note of the drive being Mac compatible it worked perfectly with the latest Mac Mini which comes without an optical disc drive. Even the web page on the Samsung site does not state that it will work with a Mac! The box does state Mac! It works and did not require any installation - full on Plug and Play. Makes the new Mac Mini a proper computer for very little cost

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Although I only briefly tried this product, bought as a present for someone, it really seems to be a great piece of kit. For the price it is very good value for money. This is going to be used on a netbook but would equally be useful as a back-up for a desktop pc or a laptop. Ordered on a Friday, delivered next day. Royal Mail. Many thanks Maplin. First class service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is sleek - taking-up so little space and light enough to rest on the laptop. Taking its power from the USB it is easy to use when required, and remove quickly. Performance is quite adequate (audio CD copied at 24X) and quiet in operation. Overall, a smart, useful and cost-effective addition to my laptop.
