      Comments about LG Black External DVD Rewriter:

      I highly recommend this product. I had bought a Netbook( E-machine) and needed an external CD drive. Configuring this product to my Netbook was a breeze. I have used it to load program CD's onto the Netbook and it has loaded them as fast as the CD drive I have on my HP desktop computer. The price was very inexpensive as compared to other manufacturer external CD drives. It is very slim and is easy to store away in a small space. Looks great and is a quality made product. It also is a DVD Reader / Writer. Bought mine at COMP USA this past August 2010 . If you are looking for low price, a quality product , very good performance and easy installation, this is the external drive to get.

        Comments about LG Black External DVD Rewriter:

        Very good acquisition. It was specially useffull to upgrade the use of my new netbook computer that by concept don't have a CD drive and so it made possible to use lots of CD programs in this new computer. We realy liked the possiblitiy to using one USB port to provide energy to the drive instead of having to plug in the eletricity port or using a battery. The problem with it is that sometimes it makes loud sounds.
