Nice drive

  • Summary: The caveats above only apply to folks who obsess over the appearance of their machines. Everyone else can safely regard this as a 5 star product.
  • Pros: It works. It's cheap. And the silver color matches my brushed aluminum lian-li PC65 case.
  • Cons: Sadly, the face-plate is plastic, and not brushed aluminum, and so it still looks cheap in a shiny aluminum case. Second, please note that various Asus optical devices are not uniform in appearance, even if they are all silver in color and Quiet Track series. The plastic molding, placement of the...

  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: Received in 2 days, Newegg is good company. Instaled 1-2-3, than read only one DVD with very slow speed, than my computer shut down and when I turn it ON dvd was DAD.

Awsome Drive!

Tirdad S., Newegg
15 November 2006
  • Summary: If you need to get a DVD Rom Drive this is the best out there. Make sure you hook it up to an 80-pin IDE cable to achieve maximum speeds.
  • Pros: THis is one of the best drives I've ever owned. When I insert a CD/DVD it almost instantly recognizes it. I can rip music much faster than my DVD Burner, and it helps me backup DVD's at twice the speed I used to be able to. This drive also cut through the windows installation by copying the files...
  • Cons: None I can find.

  • Cons: none

  • Summary: For the most part, it's exactly as described. Just they should state that when operating at high speeds, it gets louder. Also, it seems to be speed locked on DVD movies at 4x, but that's not a big deal to me.
  • Pros: Well, it's FAST and for the most part quiet. It handles DVD's, both burned and pressed extremely well. It is able to almost instantly identify media inserted into it, allowing quick access to the information stored on it. Rips CD's quick, and when playing DVD's in it it's silent. The 2MB buffer a...
  • Cons: Well, when the drive decides to go full speed on anything, it gets kinda loud. But, with most general usage, it's not bad. If you are someone who wants to use this mainly for CD's, look elsewhere. It goes full blast with CD's. Playing CD's seemed fine, but I usually just rip them. Ripping CD's go...
