Pros Works, looks OK, and the price was certainly right.
Cons Mostly unnecessary and the instructions were wrong for my case.
Summary I received one of these for free when I purchased a Lian-Li case, as a promotional item. As one of those increasingly rare souls nowadays that occasionally still uses a floppy, I actually was able to put it to use. The instructions, however, seemed to be from a bygone era, as they showed the bezel being inserted from the front. With my case, however, this was impossible. I know this because I tried. And failed. It just won't fit that way. Rather, in my case it needs to be inserted from the rear. No biggee, just a little annoying for a moment or two. It also doesn't fit perfectly in the opening provided in one the 5.25" drive covers for an external 3.5" device, as there is a narrow gap left top and bottom. Close, but not quite a fit. Still, no big deal. It does, of course, match nicely with the brushed aluminum finish of the rest of the front panel. However, upon fitting the black floppy drive in the case without the benefit of this bezel, I had to admit that the plain plastic face of the floppy drive didn't look all that bad either. But, it was free, so I am using it, and it works. But I do not believe that I'll be purchasing the corresponding DVD drive cover as it looks just fine to me as it is. I don't think that there is any point in getting anal about it. (unless you have beige external drives, then yes).
Summary I bought this, without truly thinking of compatiability. But with some pliers to rip off the side aluminum pieces, and some super glue (to glue to the old cover of the floppy) i was left with a nice looking cover to match the rest of my case. Other than that it is a good product.
