This is a slim and compact external drive designed for laptops or other devices that don't have a built-in disc drive. I received this item for testing and an honest review. I tried this drive with about 20 different CD and DVD discs, including -R, -RW, and pressed discs and I only had problems reading one disc, all the others worked fine and had good read speeds. I was also able to successfully burn a few discs without errors. The drive has a matte, brushed silver surface that looks very nice and modern. I do wish that the cable was detachable or designed in a way so it doesn't always protrude out the back to make it easier to carry around in your bags.
The casing appears to be a sturdy, good quality material and seems durable enough. The cable has a decent thickness and has a rubberized coating to protect it, it is a bit short since it's intended to be used next to a laptop or device. You can always get an extension cable if you need to place the drive farther away. The...
I just read a review here on Amazon where one of my fellow reviewers described this product as, "a much better option than Apple's own SuperDrive."
Let's be clear about something...
This is not an Apple product. You can't truly put this in the same category as an Apple product.
The Apple SuperDrive is better built, a bit shorter, but just as slim.
What the reviewer SHOULD have said was that the VicTec portable external drive is a cheaper solution to the Apple drive.
That's not knocking this product by any means. It is 3 times less expensive than the Apple Drive. It works quite well on my Macbook Pro -- and I burned quite a few CDs and DVDs to test it.
Just don't confuse this with an Apple Drive. There is a big difference in build quality between the two.
However, for under $25, this drive is perfect to throw in your travel bag and watch movies or burn media while attached to your laptop. Of...
This is a good solution to those who have a laptop or desktop that lacks an optical drive and want an external CD/DVD reader/writer.
My product testing consisted of burning several audio CD's, videos to DVD, DVD playback, and game install (via installation disk). I had no issues performing any of these tasks.
Being a USB 2.0 drive, the speeds aren't astounding by any means, but they are certainly sufficient for day-to-day use. This optical drive will do anything a regular optical drive on a computer will do.
The build quality is a solid win, as I've thrown it into a backpack numerous times without damaging it. The cord is short but sturdy, and the optical drive is an attractive aluminum silver color with a coating that resists scratches.
It is small enough to fit in many bag compartments, which is a pro for those who are always on the go but don't want to sacrifice laptop portability by buying a thicker notebook with an optical drive (Do...
