Plain old drive
Pros: It's a DVD drive. Nothing fancy. Quiet, slim, and seems reasonably fast. Make sure you have the proper power cable since the slim-line plug is smaller than a normal SATA power plug.
Cons: It's a tiny bit too small in my case (Antec ISK150) but I'm not sure if that's the drive's fault or the case. Either way there's a small gap at the top & bottom of the drive and the edge of the bay slot.
Other Thoughts: Doesn't include the non-standard mounting screws so I had to fish some out of an old laptop.

Works well, note requirements
Pros: It's a DVD drive, works as one, no real pros to mention! Slimline configuration is standard and fits in tight spaces as required.
Other Thoughts: Be sure to buy a proper power adapter if you don't have one -- the SATA connector is standard on slimline drives, but the power is a narrow form. (See "StarTech.com 6in Slimline SATA to SATA Adapter with Power - F/M" or "StarTech SLSATAADAP Female Slimline SATA to SATA Adapter with Power", or similar)
