I would recommend this item to a friend.

GREAT FOR THE PRICE
By BUZZARD from RAYMORE, MO on December 23, 2013
I WAS AMAZED AT THE SMALL SIZE. IT'S VERY THIN AND REQUIRES NO POWER SUPPLY. I HAVE USED IT FOR SEVERAL SOFTWARE INSTALLS ON SMALL FORM FACTOR MACHINES WITH NO BUILT IN OPTICAL DRIVE. WORKS PERFECTLY. I TRIED ONE WRITE AND IT FAILED BUT IT WAS AN IMAGE WRITE THAT I HADN'T TRIED BEFORE AND HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING WHERE THE FAULT LIES.
Pros:
PORTABILITY, SMALL SIZE AND NO NEED FOR POWER SUPPLY
Cons:
ON READ, NOTHING AT ALL.
HAVE TO CHECKOUT WRITE FURTHER

I would recommend this item to a friend.
