I originally went to buy one that was an advertised special but it didn't write discs, only read. I was disappointed. Didn't even realize they still made read-only drives. But this "burner" was not much more. It's a little bigger than the ROM drive but reasonably small. I was pleasantly surprised that on the two machines I used it with, it was able to run from just one USB connection though I still used two to burn, just to make sure I didn't create a toaster.
There isn't really any setup required, just plug it in. I didn't install the software, but from previous experience, NTI works fine.

Attempted to use with Acer Aspire One with 8.9 screen & stock batteryQuickstart instructions (unfortunately no mention of this outside box) with drive warn of possibly needing USB "Y" to double USB power or using AC adaptor.(Order from I/O at extra cost $25 for both) Using single USB cable packed with unit it will play CD but not spin up enough for DVD or burning.I/O online help ignored my descriptions of problem and suggested dvd player downloads requiring restart (hence disconnect from online help--"Just call back")--Acer already has dvd support onboard (Windows Media Player and additional DVD support program). Staples not doing itself any favors selling this as Plug & Play [...]

I/O customer service stinks!!

      Comments about I/O Magic I/OMagic 8x Portable Slim DVD-RW:

      This device was not compatible with Windows 8 even though the Staples salesperson got information online that said it was compatible. I called I/O and they emailed me directions that made no sense to me. The chat part of their website was closed. I left 3 voicemails and no one ever called me back.

        Didn't think I'd need a DVD player when I bought my little "convenient" travel laptop. This works perfectly and is small and convenient.

          I am extremely disappointed at this purchase. I had an old (13 year old) IBM external drive that still works perfectly and at times, its even faster than this one. I/O magic claims 8x but I've only gotten 2.4 during a simple CD upload to Itunes on a new win 7 dual core pentium 6G 1TB pc.I guess I will pack it back in its box and shelve it.

            I will do more research when I have the time. If it ever works for me I'll review it again.
            I HAVE NOT TRIED IT ON A DESKTOP FRAME.
            The failure may be due to my laptop's capabilities, its a TOSHIBA Satellite 2010.
            The drive requires 2 usb connections and may be asking for too much power (it's usb powered)

              Comments about I/O Magic I/OMagic 8x Portable Slim DVD-RW:

              The I/O Magic Portable DVD/RW performs as advertised. It provides a DVD drive for my HP Pavilion dm1 (11" screen). It is compact, fits in the carry case, and weighs next to nothing. I have not yet burned anything on it. The branching USB cord is unnecessary as it works fine out of one USB2 port connection.
