"this was very easy to hook up by the way? I just took it out put it on my computer then after that it was easy to hook up it took me about 2 seconds to hook it up. By the way I have had no problems with it though by the way. LG is a very good product."
Best Features: long cord, plug and play, easy to use
Cons: nothing, great drive
"I actually have the red drive but it has the same specs. Plugs right in and ready to go. It comes with a y cable usb but I only use 1. Im not sure about the software that is bundled with if for I do not use it. It works perfectly with Nero 9. I picked this drive up for 29.99 at Fry's (red one). The cord is also long enough to maneuver the unit Its light and for the price I couldnt go wrong. I just returned an HP slim external which was 70 bucks. At 30 for this you see why I went for it."
Best Features: Easy installation, good drive for Mac users
"I bought this optical drive to do the jobs the SuperDrive built into my Mac sometimes balks at. If you have a Mac laptop with an optical drive, you may eventually notice its tendency to refuse to read some discs, to treat some discs as damaged when they are perfectly fine, or to error while burning (especially problematic with dual-layer discs). This drive circumvents those problems for much less than the cost of replacing the internal drive. There's no software to install for Mac operation, and while the LG website says you have to use both USB plugs for Mac functionality, it works fine on mine with just the main USB connection. As a test, I ran a DVD through a data ripping application with the error log window open using both the Mac's internal drive and the LG drive, and while the internal drive reported several errors and skipped "damaged" data, the LG drive performed perfectly. To top it off, the LG even performed slightly faster once the reads began. This drive is worth the money for frustrated Mac users like me."
