Pros: bought this to replace burner on my laptop. It was easy to install and has been worked rather hard honestly. But it hasn't let me down as of yet.
Cons: only issue I could say that I have is that it was a bit shorter than the original one so I have to manipulate it some to get drive to open. Small price to pay for the quality and and constant hard work it performs. Definitely would recommend this item to someone else in market for similar item.
Summary: It's completely unusable because I have no way to anchor it to my computer so it doesn't go flying into the case every time I need to use it. It's really nice that I can spend over $720 on an order, but you won't even give me a couple screws.
Pros: Slim drive Fits in small cases Would probably work if I could use it
Cons: Sold with no screws Smallest screw holes I've seen in my entire life Have no screws to anchor this to my computer
Pros: Quiet. Low cost. I've written about 7-10 dvds and 5 cds, several brands, all burned successfully. The drive seems well made and the Samsung that it replaced had worked well for 5 years. I'm very happy. It arrived quickly enough for me.
