    Only used it to load the operating system & burn my CD collection onto the PC. It did those two things well.

    Does what it's meant to do. I bought it to install Windows.

    Yes I occasionally burn a cd or dvd. For the price why not.

    A nice standard disc drive, no big pros and a few cons... I wish the whole thing were black but people in hell want ice-water, I don't like that there is no center piece to clip the disc on to since I have it sitting sideways, and at full speed it sounds like a jet engine but that may be due to the lack of dampening on my case.

    It's an optical drive. Not really anything to say about it

    Seriously, you NEVER can go wrong with a disc drive.

    Noisy DVD drive, but it got the job done with installing Windows so I can't really complain.
