LG External USB DVD Drive GE24LU20
Date:July 5, 2010
Best Features: Cannot comment
Cons: Variation in stated system requirements
"I just bought this dvd drive with the system requirements on the box reading, CPU: Pentium 4 3.4 GHz or higher. Now, the system requirement listed online bestbuy as you will read state, 1GHz Intel® Pentium® III processor.
So you tell me which system requirements are correct, the box or bestbuy.com? I have an older 2002 HP computer which is only 3.0 GHz so I may be reutning this item to the store since I do not want to take any chances it will not work properly with my 3.0 GHz pc.
Also for the person who wrote the other review stating they did not buy it because they did not know if it came with cable or if it needed adapter power, if you go online and do some research there are several web merchants that show pictures of what is in the box and the usb cable and the power adapter come with the GE24LU20 dvd drive.
I gave it three stars only because I did not install it but know LG usually makes a fairly good product. I also don't see any software with it though maybe there is something on the install disc."

Almost brought it
Date:June 30, 2010
Best Features: not sure
Cons: lack of info on product.
"The reasons I didn't buy it is because I couldn't get any definite answers if this unit was powered by USB or an adapter. And if it includes a USB cable or not in the box.
No info on the Best Buy web site how it's powered or if the cable is included. I went to the store and the box itself doesn't mention it either.
I hope some future buyer actually mentions on here how it's powered and if the USB cable is included or not."
