Summary: Works great, and is pretty silent. I can only hear it when it starts reading a disc that was just put in. Even the ejection is fairly quiet. Only problem I've had is I was installing Final Fantasy XI, and it couldn't read a cab file for some strange reason. Rebooted and it worked.
Summary: Works good, no problems yet after 2 weeks. Could be faster but I'm not complaining, I didn't pay a fortune for it or anything. Comes with the PowerDVD player and I like that better than any other dvd player I've used.
Summary: Drive performs very well with fast access times to all types of dvd media(+r, -r, +rw, -rw, video) as well as CDs. Best of all, it's quiet. Thanks to newegg for its godlike shipping and great price on this!
Summary: This is a quality drive! I recieved it around three days after ordering with FedEx Saver shipping. Windows XP recognized the drive out of the box and after installing PowerDVD (free with the package) I was watching movies on my computer!
