5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Great price for an external unit. It is only about $5 more than a budget internal drive.

With optical drives becoming less and less useful in PCs it is nice to have one of these around that can be shared between all PCs for the few times they are needed rather than installing one internally in each build.

Cons: Loud when running.

Other Thoughts: It seems like many of slim external units have issues with quality control. I'm hoping a full size unit will be more reliable.
