Reviews

from completed build Storm Stryker Gaming Build

It may not be a 5-star drive with all the bells and whistles, but its a simple, inexpensive drive that does its job. Seems to run fast and was simple to install.

from completed build Operation : Recovery

Amazing, fast, cheap.

Great optical drive, easy and quick to setup and install.

from completed build Baby

Very loud. It does what it's supposed to though...

from completed build Artech Storm: Challenger

Not much to say about this, really. It replaced a Lite-On drive that I thought had died, is pretty quiet, and seems to be reasonably fast. Recommended for a basic DVD drive.

from completed build The Screamer Mk-1

This is a great optical drive that burns and reads DVDs and CDs really quickly. It does an even better job with those than the Blu-ray drive does.

from completed build First Build (aka Broseph Stalin)

Just the standard cheap CD/DVD reader/writer. There when I need it.

from completed build All work and no play, NO WAY!!!!

used it to load windows, it did that so 5 stars

from completed build Extrodius Level 4

Works good, looks awesome. Plays my CDs and can burn them really fast, so its great in my opinion, especially for the price!

For ~$20 this is a really good optical drive! I used it so I could install windows 8.1 (64 bit) on my computer and it did the job! It read it fast, nice, and was very easy to install!
