Pros: Fairly quiet, which is extremely important to me. Read/write CD, newegg just didn't list it as part of the spec. Lightscribe, > have not tested.
Cons: Clunky tray ejection. Might be a problem later on.
Overall Review: I never care much for DVD drive but i've built and overclocked many systems. This drive is by far the quietest to my ears. I think it came out in April, 2008, so it's fairly new tech from Samsung. I would've rated it a 5 had the tray's ejection been smoother, but as it is, it's not perfect.
