Bought this for my daughter and shes really pleased with it, she said it was really easy to use, you just plug it in and its ready. She has a Samsung nc10 mini netbook which doesn't come with a disc drive, she just connected the external drive via usb and downloaded Office Professional onto her netbook without any problem and she said it was quite fast too. She also liked the fact that its small and slim, making it very portable. She couldn't find a fault with it at all, so going by her review on this disc drive...I've just ordered another one for my other half who has exactly the same netbook as my daughter. And the price is really good from Play.com.
