Should i recommend one of these to a friend with a netbook?
Do you think a netbook would struggle with one of these, processing power wise?

Guessing transcoding/burning .avis would be out of the question for any sort of reasonable time frame... but would it be fine for dvd .isos?

Cheers for any advice.

If you're going to buy a DL burner I suggest going with a brand you can trust rather than a value drive. I went through 5 different value drives and they all failed to burn a dual layer disc correctly. I now use a Samsung drive that works perfectly.

Awful kit. Bought one from Argos as I needed one in a hurry about 3 months ago. Plugged in as per instructions and it got very hot an started smoking. Took it back, got another one (so much for being in a hurry) and guess what... this time it took the PSU on my USB hub with it.

Got my money back and sent quite a few emails for compensation on the hub. Still working this.

I wouldn't touch these with gloves on. Spend the extra and get decent one.

The samsung SE S084, version c. They usually cost around £25 - £30.

I take it you fully tested the hub to make sure it could handle the load?


You are kidding right?

It ran others fine along with a load of other kit. PS is rated for 1a.

There is a batch of firestarters out there...

Ran others fine! I take it by that remark you didn't, who uses loads of different external dvd drives unless their usb hub keeps blowing them all


Someone who repairs computers for a living and needs several at any one time to repair more than one machine at anyone time. If I have anything up to four machines in at once all requiring boot access and they don't have the facility themselves or it's broken then USB dvdroms are the only option hence I have a few and they all ran fine on the hub prior to using this one.


Rated 1a means nothing when it comes to supplying enough power for all devices plugged into a hub, you could still easily overload it


Of course it does as P=IV. I would take time to explain it all to you but I suspect you already know it all:p

Yawn, are you still droning on, if you think 1a means unlimited amps you really shouldn't be working with electronics


I didn't say that it did. If you can't handle an intelligent discussion you shouldn't post like a troll. No point in talking to a troll. Try here instead.

Discussion (And the thread by the looks of it) dead.
