Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Excellent choice for 4K blu-ray discs

Remus M 1/19/2024

Ive replaced an old internal DVD writer with this drive and Im very happy with the results. For 4K blu-ray discs you need the VLC Player free and MakeMKV the beta version is free as well. You also need to downgrade the firmware version from 1.04 to 1.03 very easy with MakeMKV. Youll end up with an excellent 4K player and ripper.

Needs Slimline to SATA adapter.

toofur 8/12/2023

Works fine but as with all slim drives youll need a slimline to SATA adapter to fit it in. No special cables just an adapter.
