5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine for me ...

Pros: Price, brand name

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a Vista PVR that I was building on the cheap. Installed Vista with it - was able to boot from it and it seems to work OK. I was able to watch a movie on it without any issues.

5 out of 5 eggsSony 1615 DVD-ROM Drive

Pros: It works smoothly, easily installed, very reasonable price.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I trashed the original Samsung drive on my older Dell by manually closing the drawer with the computer off. There was no pinhole to manually open the drive.

The Sony was very easy to install in the upper bay after loosening the securing screws in the lower drive. Windows XP recognized the drive and I have been able to run Audio and Data CDs, Data and movie DVDs without problems. Although the drive worked right away, I did obtain an updated drive from Dell. You can also get one from Opendrive.com.

Newegg promptly delivered a reasonably priced drive that was up and running with little effort.

5 out of 5 eggsReplacing Old Dead DVD drive

Pros: My DVD drive died, I was looking for something cheap and reliable, and this does the job. Also, it was shipped immediately and arrived on my front door faster than expected!

Cons: A little bit noisy, but not too bad.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to replace a drive, or add one to a new computer even, this drive is definitely a great buy.
