HP 18x DVD Writer for those pesky game discs.

Works. Is very loud though.

Not sure I picked the right model. I like it because it has LightScribe, which my photo clients like because I can laser etch their cover shots into the CDRs. Neat! I also have a 'yuge CD collection that I'm spending half my life ripping to HDD. I know I'm a dinosaur for liking optical drives but I don't know how the rest of you are living without them!

I mean, it opens smooth, reads CDs and DVDs and stuff. What more can you ask for? I hardly use it, but I prefer to have it just in case.

Speedy opens and closes! Sweet!

Leftover from an older build. My family and I still use some older software and a lot of our older pictures/home movies are burned to CDs and DVDs. That, and when the kids visit for longer periods of time, they sometimes like to watch movies by themselves (or vice-versa).

Quite loud, but who cares since I pulled it out of an old computer.

Part is as advertised, but the noise level was a little disappointing.
