    It works, it reads it writes whatever requires odd slimline sata to sata with power cable attachment...

    About the only affordable slim drive on the market, you will have to buy the slim to full sata adapter separately, but since the next one up is $80+ for DvD or $150 blu-ray its a fine choice.

    from completed build Zephyr Compact Workstation

    It's a DVD drive. It reads and writes DVDs and CDs. It works. No complaints.

    The DVD writer obviously fits my Raven RZV02B HTPC case, but the front plate is a bit thin, leaving a 2 mm gap on the left of it. It doesn't hurt (as long as you don't lose a DVD in it), but it's a bit ungainly. If you're OCD, you might want to look at the front plate width in detail, or go with an external unit.
