    Comments about ASUS SDRW-08D3S-U External Slim DVD Writer (Smoked Grey):

    My DVD drive on my HP computer doesn't always open. It's frustrating, because I never know when it will happen. So I bought this one and I've very pleased with it. I have an ASUS Transformer Pad, so I trust the brand. And I haven't been disappointed. Every type of disc that I've used with it has worked perfectly. One thing to keep in mind: for best operation, this requires 2-USB connections.

          Comments about ASUS SDRW-08D3S-U External Slim DVD Writer (Smoked Grey):

          I purchased this optical drive for my MacBook. It plays all my DVDs well. I have not encountered any problem with this optical drive so far. It's light and nice looking either sitting flat on the desk or standing up on the dock (which comes in the box with the optical drive), making it easy to adjust it to fit my work space.
          The only thing is that the physical eject button on the drive does not work with Macs. You can only eject the disk by right click the icon on the desktop to eject it (as you would do to a normal USB drive).
