4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, reads some DVDs that a few other drives couldn't read.

Cons: Makes some weird noises when it first gets power, however, nearly all ASUS drives seem to do that.

5 out of 5 eggsHad trouble, but works fine now

Pros: Works as intended. Great deal, great buy.

Cons: It started working funny with my first mobo...but we figured out the problem and it works fine now. A stick of ram was deffective...causing my initial setup to go nuts.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't write discs :*(

5 out of 5 eggsDVD Rom

Pros: Easy install, fired right up and played/installed programs from DVD and CD. A little bit loud on spin-up but plays very quiet.
Installed the white front in about one minute or less, a good match for Antec case. Well worth the price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg hit another home run, ordered on Sunday recieved on Wednesday.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine for me

Pros: Worked right out of the box. Installed windows 7 beta using this drive; no problems to report. It might be noisy, but I can't hear it over the roar of my prehistoric box.

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: For the price; this was a great find.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks but is very loud

Pros: Worked out of the box, price, no problems with vista 64.

Cons: Extremely loud. It sounds like the most horid fan is running in your computer.

Other Thoughts: I probably will never buy another one.

2 out of 5 eggsWouldn't Get Recognized by Vista x64?

Pros: It's ASUS. They know their computer tech, and generally, everything works well. When I bought it, it was free shipping. Always a plus!

Cons: However, with this drive (at least the one that is currently in the RMA process) the drive was super noisy, didn't get recognized in Vista (but was, in BIOS) and wouldn't therefore, play any media.

Again, it could be simply one defective drive. That happens. But I can't give it more than 2 eggs for the loudness alone of this drive (which seems to be a consistent note amongst reviewers).

Other Thoughts: Again, this review is on an RMA'd drive. Your mileage may vary!
