Panasonic UJ-875A Slim Optical Drive Review
Benchmark Reviews recently reviewed the SilverStone SUGO SST-SG06B Case, and supplied with that product was the SST-SOD01 kit. As was mentioned in that review, the case supports only slim optical drives. The SST-SOD01 slim drive kit we received is actually the Panasonic UJ-875A Slim Optical Drive manufactured for SilverStone. Since many of you will undoubtedly be looking to purchase the SUGO SG06 case or another small form factor case, you will need a slim optical drive. Benchmark Reviews offers for your consideration the Panasonic UJ-875A 8X DVD +/- RW Slot Loading Slim Optical Drive with SATA interface and DVD-Burner capabilities.
With the ever increasing popularity of the HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) and small form factor cases, slim optical drives have become a necessity. In order to keep cases small, light, and ventilated, many small form factor case manufacturers have opted to leave room for only slim optical drives. This venue was once the realm of only notebook computers, but that is no longer the case. The Panasonic UJ-875A Slim Optical Drive was designed for use in the modern HTPC and small form factor case. SilverStone is a leader in the manufacturing of such cases, so offering slim optical drives to fit their cases is an obvious move.
The problem with many slim optical drives already available on the market is that were made for notebooks and laptops. This means the connector is different, and won't hook up to a PC motherboard. The Panasonic UJ-875A Slim Optical Drive was designed specifically for use in a PC and uses SATA connectors.
