    Summary
    Bought this great driver for my main system. It can do everything I want. This is very cool that they added truedirect application cd so I just have to push the button to be able to do different tasks I may want. I highly recommend this drive very silent drive too.

    Pros
    Cheap, Samsung quality,
    Cons
    Not really the quietest
    Summary
    You know, being that you can find it on sale/price match it for $25, you really can't fault this thing for anything. Even the noise issue, hell, its a SATA OD and its 25. How can you comlpain?

    Pros
    Works as advertised. Quiet and quick.
    Cons
    Very poor support and warranty coverage is non-existant. Samsung extremely poor.
    Summary
    DO NOT update the firmware for this unit no matter what the supplied LiveUpdate tool tells you. Doing so renders your DVD writer useless and according to Samsung voids their warranty, even though you update according to their tool and directions - a leap of logic that defies all rational explanation. Buy an LG instead.

    Pros
    Noise. The speed, spin up, read.
    Cons
    None.
    Summary
    This is a great dvd drive. It's quiet and fast. This is the de facto drive to get as everything else in its price range is subpar and everything else that's as amazing as it is 5 times its price. Get it, now. I'm only using this as a dvd drive so I have not considered the other features.
