Summary: Bought this to replace a different brand drive that had failed. Have another older LiteOn drive that is still running fine so went with this one. Fitting was simple, slide in, fix 4 screws and connect cables.
Summary: Works well. Tray is a bit plasticky, like most these days. Opening mechanism is a bit noisy. Drive gets noisy when spins up. I don't care, because it was cheap and I hardly ever use optical media these days. If you use your DVD writer all the time you might want to pay a little more.
