Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it!! i bought this when my grandson killed my internal dvd player in my computer. it works right out of the box. I spent more time getting it out of the box than I did hooking it up. I was using a portable dvd player I was not happy with. this is perfect!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disheartened Prior to buying the Dell External USB Slim DVD +/– RW Optical Drive, I read as many reviews and product specifications I could find; everything I saw presented this device as a good buy. Contrary to what I read under the questions section on Microsoft.com, this device does not work with the surface pro 3 (mine anyway); I kept receiving an error saying that the device required more power then the USB on my surface could provide. :(I am giving this experience a 2-star only because I am generally happy with the Microsoft products I buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value Got what I paid for. Plug and play. No problems. Just worked. Very slim and light. I use with a Surface Book and leave it behind on my desk. Just plug in the USB and off she goes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from junk does not work! I spent over an hour on the phone yesterday searching 4 an activation key that a pop up window was demanding. After talking with 5 different people still got no activation key! Gave up on that & tried 2 run the recording devise. Well it did run, but it produced a DVD that does not play!
