          Comments about Plextor PlexEasy 8x Super Multi External DVD/CD Burner:

          I mistakenly assumed I could use this device as a general purpose extension of a PC. But you can't. The tech docs states that the USB port cannot be used when connected to a PC/Laptop. In addition, you can't hook up a media reader to the external USB port and have it available when connected to a PC. Plextor should clarify their marketing literature on this--not have it buried in the technical product documentation. Finally, the USB cable supplied with the product was defective; I had to use an extra USB cable I had laying around. I used to think of Plextor as being a high end product. This device makes me start to question this reputation.
