    It takes all of two minutes to fill one out, take a picture of all documents together including envelope, maybe even a video. I've gotten every single rebate I've ever sent in. So why is it wasting money?

    They have actually come a long way. I can't remember the last time I didn't get my rebate. The new thing is express rebate which gets you your rebate in two weeks for a 10% charge. Plus, it's all online now with links to check the status.

    Just remember you would need a powered USB port connect via powered port to use the drive. My tablet wouldn't read the disk unless connected through the powered hub.

    ^ yeah some of the tablets USB's are completely under powered. Even the Surface Pro III I had to connect it to the port replicator to get this thing to work.

    It needs a USB powered port to work. The rebate is from ASUS which is probably a positive. The rebate comes as an American Express Prepaid Reward Card. Limit 2 rebates per customer.

    It happens every time. Just bought it last night for $14.99 AR. Had to email Newegg for $5 refund. Hope it comes thru...

    Good deal, but don't have much faith on rebates. Smile

    Solid deal for those who still need an optical drive. Remember when deals on CD-R and DVD-R media were all over the place? You never see those anymore.

    Totally miss the days of a stack of media for 99 cents! I have a drive similar to this one. Haven't used it in years. Good to have around in case of emergency.

    ^ Not obsolete at all for the times you need software or drivers off a CD or DVD.

    Is this true? Tablet USB's won't power the drive. Interesting.
