I have one of the sweetest sons. He gifted me a new Lenova laptop for Christmas this year. It does not have an internal CD player though. I had one from my past computer, but since they are changing ports on the laptops now, it did not work with my new computer. This player is plug and play. It has two cables that plug into your computer. One is the power cable, and the other is for the player itself. The two cables are: USB3.0 is used for data transmission and power supply, USB2.0 can run on your laptop from the one player cable. I was able to play both mini CDs as well as DVDs in with this product. It worked quickly too, and I have had no glitching or sputtering. They do suggest using both cables to ensure smooth running though. That’s what I have been doing, and like I stated, I’ve had no issues whatsoever. They did not include the Blue Ray software for this player. It has a 12.7mm internal chip which allows it to perform it’s many functions. I have Windows 10, factory installed, and it works perfectly with my system.
With this player I was able to install software for other electronics and play DVD movies. The first time I played a DVD movie, I had to pick which program to play it with. After that, it automatically opened the DVD with that player. When I inserted a Blue Ray into this player, I could pull up and read the files, but it could not play the movie, since that software wasn’t included. You can also write CDs and DVDs with this unit too. It performs this task well. It can also read your CD-RW’s and DVD-RW’s too. This unit runs quietly. It has a green LED on it that comes on while it’s actively doing something. The door on it opens easily, and hasn’t stuck on me so far. It has 4 little rubberized feet underneath it, which keeps it place. The size of this unit is so thin. It’s much thinner than my last one. It measures out at 6 inches deep x 5 ¾ inches wide, and ½” thick, not including the little feet. It is highly portable if you are taking your laptop to and from work.
Now, if you want to play Blue Rays with this unit, you can if you have a certain program on your laptop. You need to have PowerDVD installed. You can find it very easily online. I found many versions, free and paid within seconds of searching. With that program, you can play all your Blue Ray movies. I find that so cool, and a great option to have. You can also watch 3D movies on this player with that software as well.
My unit is working wonderfully for me. I haven’t had any issues at all, and I am very comfortable recommending this product.
I was afforded the opportunity to review VicTsing’s USB 3.0 External DVD/CD Player Drive Combo, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown.
