Ordered the product on 24 Oct 2018 at around 7.30 PM and the delivery date was shown as 27 Oct 2018 with Prime Two day delivery. I received the product on 25 Oct 2018 at 1.30 PM that is in less than 24 hours and that too for free with 2% cashback(since I am a Prime customer). Five stars to Amazon for that. Now coming to the product, best

This is a good external dvd drive, sleek and beautiful..a little delicate though. A lot of people are saying that their LED TV does not recognise this drive although the product details state that you can connect this to your TV. The problem is that this is not plug-and-play when connected to a LEDTV....you have to change the mode to USB.

This drive is doing its job well. I did not try it for writing a CD. So far used it only for reading the CDs. I wish HP does a good job in explaing what it can do.

It's very light, so worry about its reliability.
I was expecting it to be a push-in cd type drive, but it has a tray that opens out. Hence we need to take care of the tray while inserting the cd, till it snaps at the centre.
The USB connector at the drive end is USB type B, hence not sure about the data transfer speed.

It's a good option if your laptop internal drive is dead. The external drive is extremely portable and works are promised.

A must have for everyone who doesn't need a dedicated internal CD/DVD rom, Alot of us have stopped using the CD or DVD rom by now as its kinda obsolete, so we don't invest in it when buying a computer.

The product is not good for Macbook Pro. Macbook Pro does not have two USB drives on the same side, it has one USB drive on either side of the computer. This product has two USB plugs that are too short to be inserted on different sides of the same laptop. Also, this product requires software to be installed, and it is very hard to locate

This is good drive for reading old disks. While my old LG drive would get stuck at bad spots on the video disk, this drive somehow manages to play on with the screen displaying a few square patches when the bad spots are encountered. Though the drive looks quite delicate, it is a sturdy performer.

Features:
1) Works with Windows and has MAC capability
2) Requires 2 USB ports on computer to connect. If you use a mouse on laptop like me then need to ensure you have 3 USB ports.
3) The power2go software is not inbuilt in the hardware. It has to downloaded from the website. However I was unable to download the 456MB

Bought this after a little research and deciding that this was the best external writer for my MacBook. No other external writers at this price are this well designed.
