Used condition. That being said, it's a pretty decent deal.

Do you need to buy a separate power supply?

i have a feeling that the LG for the price of these two drives would last longer than these two combined........lol

Hmm pretty good deal, don't know if I'll ever use it though. Haven't used a DVD burner or reader in a while.

Almost bought it. Didn't notice it was a single layer only drive. The drives inside these things must be truly ancient.

I am not sure about you but I only burn dual layer a few times in my life.

It can't read them either. I haven't burned a DVD in a long time, but I want to buy this for my parents as a just in case because none of their computers have DVD drives anymore.

According to some reviews it does do dual layer. I'm going to make a gamble and if it doesn't work right I'll return it. Amazon is awesome with returns.

morpheus282 05-07-2013 10:16 PM

Great deal, wish I needed it. Repped.

The Love Spud 05-07-2013 10:25 PM

This is handy for one of my compact PCs that has been waiting for a laptop DVD drive.

Here's hoping it's a laptop interface-equipped tray loading model as pictured.
(Rather than some of the top loaders I've seen as of late)

Good luck!

So who is behind those drives? Lite-on?
