from completed build Office Computer

Works very well, but seems rather loud when it spools up.

from completed build Conflux Dragon

I was a little worried this wouldn't function correctly as it sounded like something in it was rattling when I got it in the mail, but after powering up for the first time it worked perfectly and exceeded my expectations. It is capable of reading and writing all but blu-ray disk media and it is as fast as a whip for its price. Had no qualms installing all my older disk-based games and the drivers disks for the hardware were installed in a flash. It blends in very well with the case too, adding a nice touch to the aesthetic of the front. My only complaint is that it is nosier than expected, but its still quiet enough for the speed it runs at.

I wanted to add a cheap but quality DVD/CD writer. I have used Samsung drives in the past and never had any issues. Samsung offers a good warranty.
