      Very good, with minor drawbacks

      Comments about Buffalo™ DVSM-PC58U2VB 8x Portable DVD Writer With LED Power Indicator:

      I didn't even know any computers came without a CD drive, so was shocked when I bought a new computer that doesn't have one! Now this is a Toshiba, but although Toshiba sells an external CD drive (and only one), the reviews for it are poor. I perused CD drives online, but only got confused. I contacted Staples tech, and this one was recommended, with the further assurance of good reviews. It works fine for everything one might expect or want in a CD drive. Unfortunately, it takes up two of my USB ports, blocking free movement of my mouse and necessitating moving the mouse plug to the other side of the computer and disconnecting my printer until freeing up the USB ports. This I will have to live with until I hook up a USB hub.

            Bought this to install software onto a Surface Pro 2. Had absolutely no problems connecting or seeing the drive (yes, there was a learning curve but it was to use the tablet, not the drive). It didn't try to install any spam or junky software I didn't need. Will be using this more often as our workstation drives are starting to go (xp - almost antique!) I would recommend this product freely to anyone. Shipped from alternate source but was timely and within the estimate given at time of order.

              Comments about Buffalo™ DVSM-PC58U2VB 8x Portable DVD Writer With LED Power Indicator:

              This unit appears to be well-made; it is not flimsy. The body incorporates a full-size CD drawer, and the design is what one expects, nothing strange about that. The integrated USB cables are convenient and worked just fine for me with my laptop. (They are stored in some slots running along either side- a bit of an unusual touch, there, but of course, one will certainly not be able to lose them that way.) Some users might find them to be too short (Main USB cable is just under 8 inches, the "boost" USB cable-needed in case your machine does not give enough power through the first USB cable- is a bit longer- about 10". With my computer, the unit only needed the Main cable hooked up, BTW.) My Dell laptop running Windows 7 recognized the unit, and it worked fine to burn CD-R discs- no problems. It seems to run pretty quietly, too. For the money- (about $40)- it is likely a better buy than the flimsy, noisy "slim-line" chassis units I have seen. Overall, it's a great unit, but I have one small nitpick: the packaging can be a bit deceiving! It prominently says "Japan Quality, No. 1 Sales in JAPAN" on the front of the box. (I suppose that might be true, as far as it goes...) However, if you look on the upper flap of the package, the unit is actually manufactured in... China! No worries, though; I still recommend it!

              Works well, but is cheaply made.

              This is a great little player/burner. Compact, lightweight, and easy to pack in a tech bag, for travel.

              I caution those who want something better than a standard-issue laptop drive, in a seperate box. This item will disappoint you. I was hoping for a unit with a little more support under the disc, but alas, it has nothing under more than 1/2 of the space there.

              Delivery time was good, and this item came to me in a box with padding.
