Does what it's supposed to.

A little loud here and there, but it does what I want, (I haven't used the blu-ray feature because I have to get a separate program for it).

Just so I could use the OEM disk to install Windows and the Blu-Ray option was nice.

Great drive for the money, but doesn't work in a new build until after Windows is loaded. Which made my Windows 10 install disk kind of useless until I found a workaround.

Great drive: a little noisy, but works perfectly without any problems. This drive is OEM, and doesn't come with any cables or software; but, my motherboard came with extra SATA cables, and I already had the software bundle from an earlier purchased external LG Super Multi Blue drive. Though it can't play or write Blu-Rays without the additional software, I had no problem using it to install Windows 7 and play and write DVDs straight out of its packaging. It does what it's supposed to do... but for my build I wish the indicator light was red.

Pretty good optical drive. Fairly quick too.

If it wasn't for window's lack of support for playing blurays/DVDs natively, this drive would be a no brained! I purchased the bare bones OEM drive, so I had to go about grabbing my own software. Luckily there are a few free ones out there that aren't too bad.

The best part about this drive is that its pretty much silent. I haven't heard it once yet! Also the build quality is great. The drive tray doesn't shake at all like many many other disc drives out there.
