What is the story of slim dvd bluray combo optical burner drives?

I searched the Newegg reviews etc, and it seems like every slim drive is a piece of junk. Even worse, every BLURAY slim drive seems a piece of junk that is discontinued and has no firmware updates.

Are these things all junk? You can’t even find a professional review of one. You google it and get nothing. Slim drives are, what’s the word, pariahs?

Hi and Welcome!

slim drives are usually targeted to computer manufacturers (that’s why there are near to none firmware updates). There is only a very small market for end users that want to replace their existing drive.

An USB drive (Half-Height) would be a better solution, IMO.
