Cheap because it's a dvd rom and not a dvd writer. If you don't need to burn any dvds it's an ok deal.

these are soo outdated now! you can get a used dvd/rw on ebay for that price nowadays

isn't this one of the models that can be updated to allow reading of xbox360 games?

Yes it is. Voted hot just for this, plus it's a decent price if someone needs a SATA DVD-ROM.

I may be wrong here, but I think only a,b, and d

Yes hence why it's a bargain

Nope, after reading some more about it at a site I used to visit, it's as real_deal said, only other samsund dvd-roms... not this one.
I have a SH-D162c dvd rom that I've had for years, but even then I had to buy it from germany as they were getting scarce.

This is cold, too expensive and can't actually burn disc :P

yeah funny how dvd-roms can't burn discs huh!! LOL

That's like voting a TV cold because it can't cook your dinner.

No it's like voting a dvd player cold because it can't record TV. Sort out your analogies :P

yes but his analogy is more creative. not boring, like yours.

I have a white version of this drive - maybe I should get this black one to match my current PC case...

This drive is popular because you flash it with Kreon and its capable of reading and writing x box 360 images to hard drive which you subsequently burn onto a disc and play on a chipped Xbox 360. I think these Samsung drives are the only drives capable of doing this. Otherwise it is a very basic drive.

Nah, these ones can't be flashed with the kreon firmware... not yet anyway, they'll probably have to bring out a new version of the firmware for this drive, if they can be bothered.
