I was going to just buy a new dvd Rom, but it seemed like a better idea to actually get this writer instead. After all, you can use this as a rom as well as a writer. I had no problem installing it, despite not buying the cables. I just used the previous ones. It worked like a treat and does seem a lot quiter than my other one. It was also very good value for money.Samsung 22x SATA DVD Writer - Black (Bare Drive Only)

This Writer works very well, It works perfectly and is pretty fast too. (And on a side note this drive isn't made by Samsung it's made By tsst: Toshiba Samsung storage technology) Which is Owned Half by Samsung and Half Toshiba.

No unnecessary clutter like software and manuals, I have never used any of those that come with drives in retail packages. Although it doesn't say Samsung anywhere on it, model number and design is that of a Samsung drive.

Had plenty of spare SATA cables that came with motherboard, so no problem connecting it. Make sure you have a spare one before you buy this drive.

Start was shaky, drive was very loud and spinning any disc with maximum speed possible without stopping, just constant loud buzzing. If this happens, open device manager, find DVD drive and select scan for hardware changes. Windows then should install necessary drivers for the drive to work properly and it will work as it should from there on.
It that doesn't work, plug it in to different SATA port.

In conclusion if you only use the DVD drive occasionally this one is for you, if yours will be constantly in use, watching movies and burning discs, probably get a better one.

Item was returned as unusable. The button on the front did not want to eject the tray, and the drive head did not want to read the disks, after 50 minutes into a dvd the drive would not read the last 10 minutes and when I tried to install software it would not complete. Constant hammering of the drive, I suspect the reader head was mis-aligned. This maybe a one off issue, but in the end I sent it back and bought an LG drive and am really happy with it.

I found it was easier and cheaper to buy a new sata connected dvd writer rather than go to the bother of fitting an ide board to my new motherboard after a computer re-build, When I went to re-install my old dvd writer I realised it had an IDE connection rather than sata which was all that was on the new motherboard DOH!
the samsung had good reviews and so far I have no complaints whatever, quiet,fast, very easy to install, it just does what I ask it to, what could be better?

I have not had it long enough to give it a five star rating, I would probably (Not guaranteed though YET) recommend it to friends.

Your postal service is recommended though, I would have NO problem there telling friends and relatives about it.

I've just built a new PC in which i wanted a no frills dvd rw drive, and this fit the bill. It was cheap, delivered very quickly and is very quiet in operation.
Just remember you wont get any cables with this product.
