Rated 3 out of 5 by BigElf Extremely noisy
While it works as well as any other DVD Writer this is not going to be used again as it's so noisy it drowns out every other sound in the room and can be heard through a closed door. I've had a few drives that I've thought were noisy in the past but this is 10 times worse than any of them.

Chose this player because I needed a player with a flat drawer so that the bezel of a HTPC case would stick to it better.
It works fine as a DVD drive but I am quite disappointed about how noisy it is.
At first I thought I might have an unbalanced disk loaded but after trying many I find that they are the same. It is the drive that is noisy.
I can't imagine they are all like this as there would be more complaints. Perhaps I got a bad one - however, if that is the case then the quality control is poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ryszard Great, cheap as chips
Cheap as chips, does the job for the remaining first-time-install jobs you require that actually use a dvd. No issues.

I think all these low priced DVD/RW Drives are much of a muchness in terms of performance.
This one has a slight edge for me though, as it's all black with no white text on the bezel, so it looks better in the PC case in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raybo Excelent Replacement
I needed this DVD Drive as a replacement for one that had failed in my Acard Duplicator and it fits the job well, its quiet and speedy, I have burned 3 customers wedding discs already and no problems occurred, that's all that I require - a good buy at a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laatab It does what it says on the tin.
A decent build quality and fantastic price. What more could one want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by timboo You would never spot it was Pioneer
I bought this to replace my cream coloured one as my new case is black. I have to say that it feels a little less quality than my previous Pioneer in terms of the plastic. My previous one had more subtle edges on the tray. I'd say you have to be a little more careful inserting and removing discs in case you catch them as a scratch may occur.
I agree with other comments the drive does sometimes get a little noisy however nothing overly loud. Lets face it for the money you can't complain.
My previous drives still works 100% so if that is anything to go off this will be very reliable indeed.
