1 out of 5 eggsNo Connectors!

Pros: Can't say yet.

Cons: I should have read MORE of the reviews. This item does not include the necessary hard-to-find power connector (which several reviews mention) or the tiny mounting screws. So now I can buy the connector, but the delay is a big frustration. The drive's fit in my case is fairly snug, so I may live without the screws. Glue?

Other Thoughts: A regular SATA cable does connect, but this has a combo socket, including power connection. There seems to be no cable that steps the standard power cable down to this mini size.

Pros: slim, worked as advertised for me

Cons: no power cord...minus 1 egg

Other Thoughts: my case came with a power cord so I wasn't hurting, but I shouldnt have had to rely on my case having one.

2 out of 5 eggsLite-On (accessories

Pros: Great size and build quality

Cons: Needs a Mini Sata 7+6 Signal Power cable and if it isn't going to be included it should at least mention that it is needed...

Other Thoughts: Newegg shipped parts from three different warehouses and everything took a week but it did all get here and was well packed..

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Better Than Expected

Pros: I can put levels on my dvd's now I don't have to deal with an IDE bulky cable, fast speeds and NOT NOISY. Smaller than my older drives more space for airflow.

Cons: Why don't you tell me huh? >.<

Other Thoughts: Some people say this drive it's noisy but it's not bought it OEM took a week and a half to get here when i paid with a money order which I send with 3 day something I can't remember.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: I've had no issues with this drive and it seems to work well. I have it in a mini-ITX case.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Unless you are putting this drive in a laptop, be sure to order an adapter for it. The SATA data and power connections on the back of the slim drives are not standard. The adapter (New Egg PN 45521389) converts them to standard SATA data and a molex power connector.

5 out of 5 eggsRight-on Lite-on

Pros: You can go wrong with lite-on. At least I never have..

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: It comes with nothing but the drive, no software, cables, etc. It's still a good deal.
