Pros: Reads all my game discs, even the ones that didn't want to be read, although it took 5 tries (darn siblings scratching my game discs). Works just as you would expect a DvD drive to work, probably a little better, I didn't do any extensive testing on it.
Cons: It does have quite a bit of noise during the initial boot of the computer. Not sure why, but it is significantly quieter than the one it replaced.
Other Thoughts: As usual, the color of the drive didn't match the front of my computer. It wasn't black, but more of an off-black. So I went to Home Depot and for $5, spraypainted the front of it glossy black to match my NZXT Phantom 530 series case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works at the same speed as the previous cable that was in there. The only reason that I replaced the older one is because the color didn't match and it didn't have the locks.
Cons: As some of the other reviewers mentioned, the cable is in fact shorter than 10", it is 8". When Rosewill made it's measurements, it conveniently measured from end to end, instead of the length of the cable itself. This caused a slight issue for me being that I had to dangerously bend the cable at both connectors (which may potentially one day cause the wire to fray). So to say, I will probably have to replace this cable fairly shortly. I docked two eggs because of the false advertising.
Other Thoughts: So far, everything I have seen Rosewill sell has been absolute garbage. I will NEVER purchase anything labeled "Rosewill" ever again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Although it is fairly lightweight, it is surprisingly sturdy. I was actually fairly surprised at how good it was for the price I got it for at the time of purchase (it was on sale).
Cons: It was not far enough away from the wall, so a couple of my cables I had to dangerously bend. That is my fault though for not reading into the specs more closely. No eggs docked.READ FULL REVIEW
