Don't forget the cable ...

Robert W., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Pros: If you need a SlimDVD drive then this will fit the bill nicely.
  • Cons: If you are purchasing for a desktop build, rather than as a replacement drive, keep in mind that you will get a bare drive with no bracket, screws, or the required Power+Sata SlimDVD cable. I purchased for an HTPC build in a case that will not fit a standard drive, and didn't realize the "gotchas" until I received the drive. Luckily, the case (Noctua 506) had a bracket and the proper screws - but no cable. YMMV depending on what you buy.

Somewhere between annoying and teeth-grating

Craig Putnam, Amazon
11 February 2015
  • Summary: This drive fits just fine in a mini Dell Optiplex 3020, and seems to work as advertised. However, it is noticeably noisier than the drive that it replaced, with a high-pitched whine that is somewhere between annoying and teeth-grating. Fortunately this particular unit will be rarely used. In addition, it *feels* delicate, though I don't have any evidence that it actually is. I don't think I would buy this model again.

  • Pros: Nice price, came well packaged.
  • Cons: Didn't last long. I did get the extended warranty. This unit died at about 60 days. Starting to worry about Samsung's over all quality.
