5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well with Windows XP / 7 Ultimate & 10 PRO. Newegg service and delivery as always 'spot-on'. Currently owning 3 other Memorex DVD/RW drives this one was for another upgrade. As of 2015 the oldest drive is now 10 years old and still spinning strong with no increase of noise or degradation in in its functionality.

Cons: I always buy Memorex products when available. That being said like others have stated, this optical drive is a bit noisy on spin-up but nothing out of the ordinary for most optical drives. Hint: go to your local hardware store and buy 4 thin rubber washers or 4 small O-rings and use them between the drive and your case to prevent spin-up sound from transferring to your case making it sound louder than what it really is.

Other Thoughts: Your case acts like a speaker when other equipment is installed into it. As a former US submariner, I can attest to sound transfer.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well, but product doesn't look like what's pictured

Pros: Works just fine. Doesn't seem to be as loud as some have noted.

Cons: The product I received doesn't look like what's pictured or described. The tray bezel is WHITE, not SILVER. The activity light is also GREEN, not BLUE. Aesthetics count for something, especially if the product doesn't match the description.

Other Thoughts: Why doesn't anyone make all silver optical drives these days??

4 out of 5 eggsGreat unit

Pros: Looks and works great.
So far they have recognized what ever I inserted, cd, dvd or bluray with no problems.
I've used cheaper drives that developed problems over a short time: doors not closing properly, strange noises, and failure to recognize a disk without having to reboot. After 13 months both units are still working fine.

Cons: pricey, but the high quality made it worthwhile.

Other Thoughts: The silver front looks better and classier then a plain black front.

5 out of 5 eggsMRX-550L v5

Pros: Works properly under Ubuntu Linux 13.06 64-bit.
Reads Music CDs, data CDs and movie DVDs perfectly under Linux
Brasero disk burning software works perfectly with this drive under Linux

Cons: NewEgg kindly shipped a 25-pack of Memorex LightScribe CDs with this unit. However this is a version 5 (v5) unit and it does not support LightScribe. No problem for me because that feature is not advertised on NewEgg's product page. However some other reviewers appear to be misinformed on this.

Other Thoughts: Satisfied.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks OK, nothing bad

Pros: No problems, so far, but I haven't tried LightScribe.

Cons: Spins slightly louder than the quietest DVD drives I've tried, but not really bad. Seek noise is average.

Other Thoughts: The version I received was made in July, 2009. It's a rebadged LiteOn model iHAS224 and accepted LiteOn's newest firmware, version ZL0P, date Nov. 2009. This is 2 revisions newer, but do not flash LiteOn firmware because doing so will definitely void the warranty and possibly turn the product into a brick.
