    Very good

    posted by asherr on 04/18/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Works very well. That is, the initial connection to the computer and the connection to the computer afterwards, is very easy, and the quality of performance is very good. Very convenient for laptops that don't have a CD drive (like ASUS VivoBook S400). Conv...
    Cons:
    Two cables-one for power supply and the other for data transfer (was more convenient if both of the functions were in one cable).

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Thoroughly tested the drive as soon as it arrived. It performed to specs on all tests. All supported formats confirmed. (ok, except a few exotic ones like high speed dvdram) Write performance is good and disks created by this drive are clean and read perfo...
    Cons:
    Power requirement is too large.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    good size, and comes with driver cd. Works as a DVD should .
    Cons:
    Design is a little boxy, but if you are using this with a thinkpad, then it should probably match the thinkpad design quite well

    I am very satisfied

    posted by GabrielMartens on 11/27/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    1 - Is the original. 2 - Read and Write as is described. 3 - Plug and Play. 4 - Using the two cables (one for energy, the other for data), it is fast enough.
    Cons:
    1 - It could be sent with a cover, as it is a portable device. Could be a bag, or something.

    IT does what it have to do

    posted by Merlinds on 06/29/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Simple plug and play device. You need no soft if you use it with an OS before Win 98. You just plug it in and it works like a charm. Is small and the build quality seems pretty good. It also comes with an extra power source (a second USB cable) if with o...
    Cons:
    Just the data cable that does not properly fits in the slot. But nothing important!

    Summary for Thinkpad Slim Portable USB 2.0 DVD RW

    posted by DanzilF on 08/25/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - It comes packaged well - Comes with a CD (just in case your Operating System doesn't recognize it). However I must say that first thing I've tried it was on a Dell Mini and I've booted from it. - Material does not feel cheap at all. - Comes with 2 USB ...
    Cons:
    - Cables could be a little bit longer, but so far I didn't require them any longer, so they should be good for most of the time.
