Has worked well

Gregory E., Newegg
28 June 2014
  • Pros: It works fairly quickly, feels sturdy, and has continued working for over 4 years. Longevity is crucial for me with a budget so i'm very pleased that is has lasted so long.
  • Cons: It's pretty loud when reading discs. I wear headphones so its not that bad but when i don't have headphones on its pretty annoying.

Did what it was made for

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Worked good for it's time.
  • Cons: Somehow the SATA power cable connector chipped on it. Definitely was not my own doing as I never force anything enough to break a hard piece of plastic. My guess is it came that way but regardless it has worked fine despite not being able to fully plug in the SATA power cable.

Worked great the first few years, has started failing though

Mike B., Newegg
22 May 2013
  • Pros: Worked perfectly fine for the first 2 years, but then it started developing problems
  • Cons: Aforementioned problems: -Tray does not eject anymore. That's with the eject button on the actual unit, and trying to eject via UI -Completely stopped reading any type of discs. The computer detects the drive just fine; it's visible to Windows and the BIOS, but no CD can be read at all
