Works great

Richard K., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Pros: Works well; no problems.
  • Cons: Sometimes gets stuck trying to eject discs; pretty sure that's due to the case putting abnormal pressure on this unit so not docking any points for it.

It works!

Randy W., Newegg
27 December 2010
  • Summary: Saved the customer a bunch of dough......
  • Pros: Used in place of a more expensive DVD drive in a HP IQ505 Touch screen computer.
  • Cons: Not a con, as I had to modify the case slightly to make it work.

Decent drive

Karel M., Newegg
16 December 2010
  • Summary: Good if you need a slim drive.
  • Pros: Used in a HTPC and has been working very well.
  • Cons: It's the loudest part of the HTPC I built. It's not terrible but can be head once in a while. The blinking access light gets annoying when watching a movie so it got painted over.

works but could be better

William S., Newegg
29 October 2010
  • Summary: this drive sits in a media PC that is more internet driven than CD/DVD driven, so if you are more DVD driven it might not be the best solution. I could easily get more irritated if I had to put in disks more often. the occasional insert doesn't seem to boil my blood too much.
  • Pros: good speed and reliable
  • Cons: kind of flimbsy so that when installed the door only closes by pushing on one side of the drive. in addition the disk sort of catches many times and you have to be very careful while inserting

Doesn't fit in most dell laptops

Eric M., Newegg
23 September 2010
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: This thing won't fit in any of the 3 Dell Latitude laptops I've tried it in. It says it's compatible with laptops, but it's WAY TOO BIG. The laptops I own have ROM's that are much slimer than this one. I think they need to specify that it only fits mini atx computer towers, not laptops.

Nice Burner

John G., Newegg
20 September 2010
  • Summary: Mounting screws must be 2/56 or equivalent metric...Poor eyesight..... Drive holes yielded perfect alignment of bezel with front of case (wow).
  • Pros: Fit mounting bracket of Antec Mini Itx case perfectly Easy plug Sata Power and Data cables Quiet operation CD's snap mount like a Laptop, rather than drop into tray. A plus for Vertically mounted drives perhaps.
  • Cons: None

  • Pros: Havent had a Chance to test is yet as I was unaware that there were no cables included and I don't have a mini-sata power cable.
  • Cons: No Cables - Make sure you purchase this accessory form NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186118
