Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely awful experience and rubbish quality! The 1st unit delivered was faulty as the drawer wouldn't open automatically, it could be opened just about manually, however although the drive was recognised by 3 different PCs it wouldn't read any disks, tried audo CDs, CD Roms and DVDs on 3 different PCs. I then had a replacement unit sent, this time the drawer opened OK but the drive wouldn't come up on my PCs, tried it on a laptop, a netbook and a desktop and on 2 different versions of windows (XP and 7). This time I returned it for a refund, 1 faulty unit is bad luck, 2 faulty units in a row is unacceptable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very surprised by Andrew's comments above as when I got this thing the set-up time was less than a minute. Plugged in the data, plugged in the power, expected to have to install drivers (Vista) and was just getting the driver disk out of the packet when the computer said drivers were installed and device was ready to use. I didn't believe it either. So I fished out a very old game to test on this old laptop computer (Acer Aspire 5735Z) which was Theme Hospital. Whizz. Bang. Installed and playing in less than two minutes. I'm dreadfully pleased with this spiffing bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The great thing about this slim line dvdrw is it's ultra slim and with the rubber effect casing provided unlike other brands it does not get scratched and will last longer. Excellent price and just what I needed as my netbook had no dvdrw built in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ultra Slim External DVD drive was exactly what I was looking for. I reserved this with Click & Collect and it was ready on my arrival in the store. It was just what I wanted and works perfectly with the small laptop providing the CD/DVD drive I was looking for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very reliable Alas despite it's appealing design I have found this device to be prone to misreads & disk draw refusing to open.
