Summary: I brought this product for 2 reasons. One was to install my mother board drivers and the other was price. As everyone stated it does not come with wires but luckily my power supply did. Simple to install but wow is this thing loud. I used it twice so far and I doubt I will use again after yesterday.
Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x Internal SATA DVD Multi Writer

Summary: I've bought two of these and I'm happy with them. They do all you'd expect them to do and they do it very quietly too. My only critisizm would be they seem to be a bit flaky when using DVD-RAM discs. I have some DVD-RAM discs with some backups that were previously burnt using an LG drive.
Summary: Pros: 1. Cheap. 2. Good features. 3. S-ATA Cons: 1. Cheap build. 2. Noisy as hell. If you're on a very, very tight budget, then go for this. I got it for my dad, as he just needed a CD drive for the odds 'n sods; he's quite happy with it, but I wish I had looked elsewhere.
Summary: This drive seems great: fast, reliable and with a flashing light. However, it is ridiculously noisy! I bought this drive because among all of my DVD drives which I have stockpiled at home, I could not find not a single one that used SATA instead of IDE.
Summary: I bought the Sony DVD-Ram Drive because it can read (burn? I don't know because I've never tried to do that) my collection of Panasonic Ram-disks, along with just about everything else (unfortunately, however, the Ram disks have to be removed from their protective cartridge).
Summary: I bought it to replace my old LiteON burner which started to fail burning DVDs (although it still burned CDs just fine). I also bought a pack of Verbatim 43550 16x DVD+R discs. The Sony burner did just fine, I have burned already 10 discs form that pack without issues.
Summary: This optical drive does the job, you can immediately see that it's solidly built and I had no trouble installing it. However, potential buyers should be aware that this product is really quite noisy and is far from the fastest in terms of burning/ripping and transferring data.
Summary: Not much to say about this product except that its noisy but gets the job done; enter a disk and it will work at a reasonable speed whilst making a huge racket. Cheap, relatively cheerful and a good buy if you're looking for a no nonsense DVD burner.
Summary: Köpte den för att jag inte hade nån dvdläsare. Den gör vad den ska men låter väldigt mycket när den jobbar. Men eftersom jag i princip bara använder den när jag installerar windows så går det bra :)
