3 out of 5 eggsLoud As a Helicopter

Pros: Has worked for 6 years of occasional use in my PC build.

Cons: Loud. The only reason I wrote this review after so much time is I put a CD into the drive for the first time in a year, and noticed how ridiculously loud it was. Then I remembered it was that loud from day one.

Pros: I bought this early 2009.
It plays and writes DVD RAM.

Cons: Pushing the button won't eject the tray anymore. I have to stick a paper clip in the hole.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works perfectly.

Cons: Um, it was raining when this arrived?

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive to replace an OEM CD-ROM drive in an old HP Pavilion. Not only did the drive work perfectly, it also fit the crazy front bezel on the HP case. I honestly have nothing bad to say about this drive, and hope that it stands up to the test of time.
