Reviews

from completed build NeoBlue

Sounds like a fan, decent speed.

It spins my discs and reads them. Thank you optical drives.

Wicked fast. I let my dad rip all his old music disks to my computer for backup and I thought it would take all day, but it only took about thirty seconds per disk!

from completed build Team Canada, Going for Gold

Good solid drive, haven't had a lot of oppertunity to try out all functions yet but so far it's fast and doesn't spool up like a 747
