Pros: A long long, ancient time ago... This optical drive made it happen... This drive was indeed where the magic happened... without these IDE drives, how would I have burned my ISOs to install OSs and software on computers??? HOW I ASK YOU!!!?!?

Summary: Could have sent more than just 1 DVD and CD to burn, but hey they sent one of each and i don't know of any company doing this.

Pros: Cheap, works great. Installs fast - Plug and play. Sony!
Cons: No software. No biggie if you already have some.
