    The only reason why this loses a star is because of the lack of native blu-ray codec support. Otherwise, it was a decision that I made to keep this drive, and utilize it.

    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.

    For when you absolutely cannot avoid using an optical drive. Build quality is okay (could be better), functionality and compatibility has been fine, haven't had any major problems. For the price, it's not a bad deal.

    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.

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