I picked this up to create image and backup discs of several netbooks. The drive is sleek and portable, needs no external power and is reliable. The fact that is has lightscribe is a great bonus for such an affordable and reliable drive.

These devices are for those desktop user who don't have a dvd drive or the hot new Netbooks which by design don't include a DVD (or CD) drive. But my 2 different manufacture netbooks (Toshiba & Eee)don't supply enough power to the external dvd drive to load as a usb device or to spin a cd. Therefore it's a paperweight. Unless you spend extra money (per instructions) to buy a power adapter from Memorex. Look at the box or other manufacuters to see if it comes w/ a power cord.

Works well at a good price

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

My new bargain laptop did not come with a DVD drive. The cost of upgrading to an internal DVD was 2x-3x more than the price of this unit. It has been primarily used for loading software DVD's already purchased.

Excellent Product

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

I purchased this for an HP Mini computer. Staples was running a sale and a rebate with the purchase. The product is well-built, works very well and was an amazing price for a unit that is a dvd writer. Additionally, I was given very good service and was able to try it at the store before I purchased it. Overall, this was a very good purchase.

Memorex 8x External DVD

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

Great in-store price on this little Memorex DVD recorder (8x slim model). Easy out of the box and "up and running" within minutes which is good as I'm not techie! I was looking for an inexpensive, but decent brand external DVD player and am very happy with this and it's slim line dimensions which don't take up much space on my small desk. Perfect to use and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a decent little external DVD recorder so they can watch all they movies they have on DVD as the new machines (Mac's) don't have a DVD/CD slot any more....

works perfectly

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

This drive works exactly as it should. My only complaint is the optional software that it comes with... doesn't tell you it's optional and it got confusing. After that no issues and so much cheaper than having a drive built into my laptop!!

Comments about Memorex 8x Slim External DVD Recorder:

Bought to copy CD's; have not been able to do so despite registering (WHY) with NERO and abiding their incessant pitch for their programs. Printed instruction sheet is in miniscule, light grey font on glossy paper making it almost impossible to read without a magnifying glass. Nero program never gets around to allowing a CD to CD burn or a Computer to CD burn. Totally disgusted with Memorex as a product now.
