Summary: It's worth the money. For my Gaming PC this is perfect, since it restrains any temptation to add non gaming programs and potentially making it my PC instead of my Gaming PC. The drive can get rather loud, but when compared to other drives that I had it performs beautifully.
Summary: I'm sure I could RMA it, but shipping it back would cost half the price of a new one, I'm gonna call this karma for all my other parts working and be happy the part that went bad was so inexpensive.
Pros: looks pretty, great price, I like that the tray is black in addition to the faceplate.
Cons: doesn't work. I've gone through a lot of trouble shooting steps and have conclusively decided that it arrived broken. I don't really have any hard feelings, it's very inexpensive and I just got unlucky.
