Good LG GP50NB40 Slim External 8x Black DVD Writer USB 2.0 Retail
I love this drive. I just built a new computer and didn't want an internal DVD drive because I almost never use discs anymore. I bought this for the very odd time that I need to use a disc and, since it's USB, I move it between computers as necessary (my laptop doesn't have a DVD drive either).

Summary I love this drive. I just built a new computer and didn't want an internal DVD drive because I almost never use discs anymore. I bought this for the very odd time that I need to use a disc and, since it's USB, I move it between computers as necessary (my laptop doesn't have a DVD drive either).
I was able to boot the Windows 10 installation disc with no trouble whatsoever using this drive. BIOS detected it as a bootable drive on the first try.
Also love that no AC adapter is required for power.
Haven't tried the writing functionality yet, and I doubt I ever will, as I pretty much have no use for writing CDs/DVDs anymore.
Summary Wouldn't even get this if it weren't for the occasional optical media requirement. But it's compact, works decently, and doesn't hurt the bank much. Drive doesn't read as fast as an internal dvd drive, but that's expected.
Summary If you want an affordable external DVD burner then look further. The LG GP50NB40 Slim External 8x Black DVD Writer USB is for you. I've burnt dozens of DVD's in the short time that I have it with 0 problems.
Pros Thin and light Powered by just the single USB cable needed to attach it to PC
Cons Could be quieter w/ less vibration
Summary An inexpensive option for those who have no drive bays to fit an internal drive or need an option for a laptop w/o a drive. It works fast enough that I don't notice a difference between my old internal and this. Apparently it can plug directly into TVs, but have not tried this option.
Summary What can I say? It does what it says it does. I hardly ever use DVDs anymore, so I only have it as a backup. It has worked so far and looks good. The detachable usb cable is either a pro or a con (over a stowaway cable)depending on how you look at it.
