The HP DVD RW is the first generation of SATA optical drives for HP ProLiant servers. The DVD RW drive will be capable of reading DVD 4.7 GB through 8.5 GB media. It will also be able to read standard stamped, CD-R, and CD-RW media. The drive supports writing to CD-R, CD-RW, DVD +R/RW, and DVD -R/RW media.
Cons: It did not work and for what ever reason it is DARK BLUE not Black. The replacement is a repair and is noisy. Unfortunately I couldn't use my old IDE drive (nice and quiet) because it is a straight SATA board.
Other Thoughts: I am not sure if HP messed up or if Newegg did. never had an issue like this before so we will say HP jacked it up. I get the burner and the bottom of package has been opened and resealed. Now this is a box in side the NewEgg box. I think whatever and do the install I notice this isn't Black, then I get my rig up and going to find all the drive does is blink wont open nothing NOW I have a "repaired/replaced" drive that is still not black and is noisy so I SAY "EPIC FAIL" not that maybe the actual drive is bad if you get a new, but something is a miss with mine and it happend along the way and I had to pay :/
