Plays CDs, what else can I say?

David B., Newegg
18 August 2008
  • Summary: If all you want is a cheap cd-rom drive, this is great choice. If you want something more capable and/or reliable, you should look somewhere else.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install, simple to use. Works all right.
  • Cons: Seems to have some trouble reading from copy-protected discs. Some of my games must be played from my other cd/dvd drive.

Asus CD ROM white

Petr K., Newegg

  • Summary: If they could get the motor noise down and refine the tray movement more - I'd pay an extra ten bucks for it- it's basically a very good drive with a couple of minor caveats.
  • Pros: Veyr good sound quality after burning mp3 tracks to my hard drive (I use slow speed - no info on max speed) Nice looking drive. Fairly smooth tray movement(could be a bit better).Nice video quality on games. This the closest in signal quality to my Yamaha burner that I've ever encountered from a ...
  • Cons: It says Quiet Calm Drive on the box ... the motor is pretty loud when reading though. Not a lot louder than the two drives I mentioned but seems like false advertising. Apparently the suspension boasted about does keep that noise from affecting output quality so it's not VERY annoying in the end....
