PACKAGING & CONTENTS.

The Tsing USB 3.0 External DVD RW Drive is supplied within cardboard retail style packaging that is wrapped in a grey courier style postage pouch. On the front of the box is a product image and on the back there is product information and instructions in both English and Chinese, although sadly there is little in the way of specifications for the actual DVD drive (a reason for which we shall get to shortly).

Inside the box the drive is wrapped in a clear plastic bag held in place on a clear chocolate box style plastic tray. Underneath the drive is a small instruction leaflet also in English and Chinese that sadly contains little more than what is found on the rear of the box.

There are no other accessories found within the box (the cable is hardwired to the caddy in case you are wondering), some may question why there is no emergency ejection tool and the reason is slightly complicated but again this will be answered shortly.

 

MEASUREMENTS.

The drive measures 15mm x 147mm x 147mm at its greatest points and weighs 302g (including the cable obviously). As previously noted the USB cable is hardwired to the caddy and is non removable or replaceable and protrudes by 20cm excluding the connector and connector jacket (and yes, the cable is far too short, but such is the price of convenience).
