I was looking for a inexpensive external CD Drive that I could try to connect to my son’s raspberry pi mini computer so that he could watch dvd’s while traveling. So when I found this Novapolt External CD Drive USB 3 0 DVD Drive for under $25.00 I decided to try it out. Now, I need to tell you that I did get this for much less when Novapolt asked if I would do a review.
The device shipped very quickly from amazon, and was packaged very well. One thing I liked about this external CD drive is how the USB cord is permanently attached and is held in grooves underneath the drive.
I loose a lot of cords, and this design both prevents this and is sleek and keeps the cords out of the way when not in use.
The drive works well, and it comes with its own drivers, so there isn’t anything to complain about.
I really like this device, even though plugging it into my son’s pi is harder than I imagined.
