5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: It's SATA, and for the price this definitely is a great buy for anyone who only needs a cd/dvd burner drive. From coming from an old IDE drive this is a good step up, i can really notice the speed is much faster. I've had this for a few months, and still no problems.

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: this is OEM so make sure you have a SATA cable layin' around

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap. This thing arrived DOA. Saddly it is so cheap that RMA'ing it would cost almost as much as just buying a new one so what's the point.

Other Thoughts: Most hardware has a certain percentage of defects. This may or may not be my case. Who knows.

5 out of 5 eggsJust works

Pros: This thing just works as expected, comes with basic version of Nero.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: FYI: I installed this into my Antec P180B case on the bottom bay and the drive is not as deep/long as my older IDE drive. The only problem this caused me was that I not able to use a right-angle SATA connector.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance for a great price!

Pros: Fast, reliable, burned hundreds of CDs / DVDs and counting!

Cons: None. Its great!

Other Thoughts: Ive had this drive for just about a year and it was replaced by a PATA burner that I had for 4 years. This is quite the work horse. I constantly use this drive for burning discs/backup, playing games, watching DVD's.
