First of all if you're considering getting this you should check out the pictures I posted which shows you just how simple the installation can be.
Too long and don't want to read? Here you go:
Cheap (or at least it was when I got it).
Functions as it should.
Lack of installation instructions.
USB cords are really short.
I purchased a SSD drive and a hard drive enclosure that would fit my my laptop and I removed my DVD burner. I use my DVD burner maybe once a month and so I took it out without regrets. But then I had this DVD burner on my desk that was completely unattractive. So I checked out reviews and picked this one up from Amazon.
It's pretty basic and I'm sure if you're taking out your DVD Burner you also have the capabilities of installing this. While there are no installation instructions (-1/2 star) you probably won't need them. There are instructions for when you plug in the drive into the computer, but most things are plug n play that you probably won't need those. The USB cords are also really short (-1/2 star), but most of the time you don't need them to go far. Here are some generic instructions after unboxing:
1. Check to make sure you have everything (Enclosure with circuit board, 2 USB cables, DVD drive face-plate, 2 screws).
2. Install the DVD drive face-plate that's included if you need one and unsnap the enclosure
3. Place your drive into the circuit board's SATA connection.
4. Snap the enclosure back together (make sure the enclosure lines up properly).

Also, for those of you with Macs who are saying that the optical drive will no longer be able to play movies via DVD Player, you're wrong. Here's a very simple fix for that. (Note: you'll need administrator permission) If you've experiencing an error when trying to use DVDs, just find the file /System/Library/Frameworks/DVDPlayback.framework/Versions/A/DVDPlayback. Copy it and paste it to the desktop. Then, leaving the original file where you found it, rename it by adding (ORIG) to the end of its name, just to keep it around for good measure. It should look like "DVDPlayback(ORIG)" Download a sweet program called 0xed and open the "DVDPlayback file you pasted on the desktop. Run a find and replace (command-F) and type "internal" in the search field and "external" in the replace field. check "all cases" option. Replace all and then "save as..." to the desktop, overwriting the other file on the desktop. Drag and drop the new file back in the System folder alongside it's (ORIG) brethren. That's it. Your now external optical drive will also play DVD movies again.
Tips for new buyers:
1. The kit comes with two screws that keep the adapter attached to the rear panel (where the power and usb ports are). Put in the screws AFTER the entire external enclosure is assembled because there are two "snap on" clips that line up with the screw holes which the screws MUST thread through. The clips will break if you put the screws in first because the screws will be blocking where the clips are supposed to fall in place. I failed to realize this (no manual...) and broke one clip but the case seems to hold together...phew.
2. The cover panel they provide (where you press to make the drive pop out) fits well with the case, better than the cover panel from my OEM drive which would not close fully. If you decide to use the provided cover panel, the right side without all the DVD/RW lettering has a snap on clip AND a cylindrical nub that has to be aligned first BEFORE the snap on clip or the clip will not stay in place. I failed to realize this and broke the clip but some glue fixed it. Oh well.
Overall it's actually nicely made despite others saying it's cheap and flimsy. Mine has a nice finish and is sturdy when assembled. The clips are just very thin and easy to break. For the price it gets the job done. Also, keep the drive on a flat surface when in use. You may damage any spinning disk inside otherwise.
The driver CD is useless. I didn't even open it, Windows 7 detected and installed drivers automatically.
