Pros Slot load is better than the slim tray that comes out
Cons Hard to mount (see summary)
Summary Good drive to put into small cases with slim optical drive slots. Works nicely and you don't have to worry about breaking off a slim tray like most laptops have. It is difficult to mount this drive in your case though. It uses tiny screws that require special tiny screwdrivers. And while I have tiny screwdrivers, some of the screws are tucked away in such a way that when mounting to the case, the screwdrivers couldn't actually reach where the screw needed to go. Very difficult to workaround. I only managed to screw it in because I had a bunch of removable bits that could screw them in. I had to reach into tight spots and spin the bit with my fingers to screw these screws in. Very difficult work.
Overall, this is really one of your only options for a slim internal drive and if I needed another one, I'd take this.
SilverStone SOD02 is a slim type DVD combo optical drive which can support DVD/CD disc re-writing. With its SATA interface, SOD02 enables data transfer with maximum compatibility and stability. For chassis that require installation of a slim optical drive (ex. SilverStone Lascala series LC19, Milo series ML02B, Grandia series GD02MT and Fortress FT03) to play and record DVDs, the SOD02 is the perfect solution.
