5 out of 5 eggsStandard DVD ROM

Pros: Standard drive with usual SATA connection. Quiet and I have had no issues reading disks.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The drive isn't anything to get excited about. It gets the job done. I use this drive to save wear and tear on my -RW drive and make clone copies of disks. This build I went with every Asus component I could.

1 out of 5 eggsGet another drive

Pros: Worked great for about 6 months. Not loud when I was watching DVDs.

Cons: On that 6th month the drivers failed to load into Windows. After uninstalling the drivers in Windows, restarting, it gave an error message telling me that the drivers were corrupted and couldn't load or re-download, disabling the drive.

Other Thoughts: Also went on the Asus website, when I searched this drive, it said there were no products, then in the forums for it some others had the same problem. Highly recommend spending about $3 more on a better drive, or if Asus would fix this problem 5 eggs!

3 out of 5 eggsnoisy drive

Pros: came as advertised. worked the first time I plugged it in.

Cons: noisy during disc read. it's annoying to not have a CD burner, but that's part of the advertising so it's okay.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, but mine has one quirk...

Pros: Great read/rip speeds, SATA interface, welcomes both AHCI and Native IDE modes with open data ports. ^_^

Cons: If I close the tray of my drive with no disc loaded, it makes a rather nasty, very audible noise, seemingly scanning for a disc... Nonetheless, when a disc is loaded, it is whisper quiet.

Other Thoughts: I wonder if this noise is present with every drive of this particular model line. None of my ASUS QuieTrack 16X DVD drives make such a sound - they barely make any sound at all.

4 out of 5 eggsFast but somewhat noisy

Pros: Very fast but also noisy, using in a soundproofed case but you can't mistake that it's running. It downloads info very quickly off either CDROMs or DVDROMs.

Cons: Just the noise

Other Thoughts: Buy the ASUS DVD-E818a3T Drive - it's also fast but quieter.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It gets the job done. It wasn't DoA?

Cons: This thing vibrates a good amount, but that problem may be mostly on my case. The packaging it came in was pretty cheap; just a a bit plastic with the manual included.

Other Thoughts: No significant problems yet.
