Ts­ing USB 3 Ex­ter­nal CD/DVDRW

Custom PC - - CONTENTS -

This ex­ter­nal USB DVD drive works for all in­tents and pur­poses as well as an in­ter­nal drive. If you want to build a PC with a new case that cuts out the clut­ter from an op­ti­cal drive, but still want to ac­cess the oc­ca­sional disc then it’s ideal. Com­pared with the DVD drive you might have sit­ting in an in­ter­nal drive bay, it’s much slim­mer and lighter but func­tion­ally the same, ex­cept that the disk tray doesn’t roll all the way out when you press eject.

Be­cause it draws all the power it needs from a USB port, there’s no need for an ex­tra power sup­ply and the ca­ble tucks away neatly in a re­cess un­der­neath the feet, so it’s easy to pack and takes up very lit­tle space. For­tu­nately, the de­vice just works as soon as you plug it in, which is just as well, as the man­ual, such as it is, feels like it was dragged back­wards through Google Trans­late.
