Summary: If your looking for a good DVD-player to replace your old CDROM or your failed DVD-BURNER, when all you did was ruined it by using it as a DVD-player, then this one is for you. It's cheap, but not built cheap and does it's job.
Summary: If it works, it works, if it doesn't it doesn't. Not much more to say about a CD/DVD drive Pros: - It works. - Quality at a cheap price. Cons: - Runs a bit louder than some of my other media readers. - not flush with the exterior of my case/ slightly lighter colored. I'd replace this drive with an identical model again.
Summary: Honestly, I'm hardly using physical media anymore, so I was disappointed when my 6 year old DVD burning bit the dust. This Sony has proved to be a nice, quiet-operating replacement. It does what it's supposed to do, despite the fact that its job is becoming archaic.
Summary: This came with absolutely no directions, no contact information, no computer connections, no clues as to whether this can be safely used on my computer (The product description sounded as if this item was safe but with NO directions or ANY attached product information, I now question this safety). If I do not get useful directions via e-mail from manufacturer this week, I will have to return this item. If this is standard operating practice for Sony, buyer beware.
