Pros: Works Well. Was able watch, review a blueray no problem. Burned a video of my wedding to blueray disc and it worked fine. A CD Image burned fine as well. Haven't tried a regular dvd yet, but I don't expect any issues.
Cons: The drawer opening and closing is a little noisy (like some older drives), but not really a big deal as long as it keeps working lol.
Other Thoughts: Not really a con for the Drive itself, but just a comment: The software that was bundled with this from newegg when I purchased was misleading and personally I am puzzled at why a free software that can be downloaded by anyone was listed as a bundled offer.

Cons: incompatibility issues with some programs at first
Other Thoughts: so I wrote a review earlier and only gave it one egg. I thought the drive was bad, I am still not convinced that it isn't but after getting the second drive and experiencing the same exact issue, I am starting to think that it may be a compatibility issue with Sony products. So basically sony products will not burn to DVDs, well it does but it runs into issues on writing the 'lead-out' portion and then errors out and you have a coaster. Haven't tried it with other programs yet. I have to use my samsung DVD burner to do DVDs from sony, Blu rays burn and work awesome though. if you want to watch blu ray movies on your computer, you need to download a compatible Blu Ray play back program however. But works great.

Pros: It is indeed very quiet. I have a very "quiet" but fast computer in a quiet room in a quiet neighborhood and while burning BD-R and BD-RE it is barely noticeable as it sits 16 inches from my left ear, for real.
Cons: No problems what so ever.
Other Thoughts: It was on sale via Newegg email savings. Be smart and sign up. Using Imgburn I can burn a BL-R DL with 42.5GB at 4X = 43 min write & 28 min verify. No coasters. Never burn at top speed! ;-) BD-RE medium used is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817607057 Having good luck with that brand in BD -R as well.
