Summary: Got it stock with the Vaio FJ270/b. if your looking for a replacement drive, find another.
Pros: Worked for awhile
Cons: Only had the drive for about 2 weeks, but after a cd burn, it wouldn't read or write anymore. It can still read DVD's and burn them, but for cd's it died. -Eject button is pretty inconvienent as well
Summary: Never going to buy another Sony optical drive.
Cons: Have had several of these die early or come DOA. Sony does not support them - there is no warranty for OEM parts. Unfortunately, I did not buy these from Newegg so I couldn't take advantage of their awsome support.
Summary: GOOD Buy .Look No Futher .I give this drive 5 stars
Pros: The Drive was easy to install . My laptop's bios easyly detected the drive .Reads scrated cd/dvd's well .I have a Sony VAIO PCG -GRS 700 .the Combo drive which it came with died after the waranty hence got this repalcement drive.I must says this drive is just perfect works great writes dvd's flaw...
Cons: The front panel could not be swapped with the old drive hence there are gaps on the ends of the pannel,i have to still try to attach the old pannel to this drive ,have'nt figured it out yet .Am thinking of using sper glue to stick the old font pannel to the new drive .
Summary: Just got one for my 700m too, and also had to remove the black sleeve (6 screws and a lil bit of sticky stuff). Just simple plug n play after that. Burned a 70min cd in 5 min and a dvd in 12. Sony + Newegg = a quailty buy!
Pros: Sony quality, good burn speeds and sample rate.
Cons: Has a bit of a hum when burning/reading, but what drive doesnt?
Summary: So far, so good on a Dell XPS Gen 2 As previosly stated on Newegg reviews this drive works great on Dells, however you must take the black sleeve and the connector off your drive. But thats no issue at all, since any 4 year should be able to do it.
Summary: After seeing the previous review I too purchased this for my Dell 700M. The other reviewer is correct. You do have to remove the black sleeve and plug relocator from your stock drive and install it on this drive in order to use this with the 700M, but once the swap is done, this drive is plug and...
Summary: I just installed this drive into my Dell 700m. It took a little work with a screwdriver to get the black sleeve and the connector off of the old drive, but the computer recognized the drive with no complaints. I burned 3 GB onto a disk in 10 minutes using Nero.
