Question about Silverstone FP58B

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Forgive me if I post this in the wrong forum section, I think this is the correct section to post this.

I would like to buy the Silverstone SST-FP58B Slim Optical to 5"1/4 Bay Black

But I have a couple of questions.

Which slimline slot loading DVD burner does fit in here?
How do you eject a dvd or cd out of this bay? There is no eject button on the bay itself.

Say I buy this Slim line DVD Burner there is a eject button on the front of it, but when I build it in the bay adapter it is behind the metal plate, or do i need to remove the front of the slot loading drive and then build it in?

I know there are slot loading drives like these without a front, do I need one of these? But then again how do you eject the dvd, there is no eject button on it? Or how does this work?

Also if anyone could link a site in the netherlands where I could buy these kind of slim slot loading drives that fits in this bay adapter, i'd really appreciate it.

Thank you for anyone who can help me out.

Currently there are two standard sizes for slim optical drive. The older one that's been used in laptops since inception (12.7mm) and the newer 9.5mm standard that is now used in ultrabooks.

For FP58, you should get the larger 12.7mm slot-loading slim optical drive. We sell one ourselves, the model name is "SOD02" and it has a slim SATA to SATA adapter bundled for you to use with any desktop systems.

As to why there isn't an eject button on the front bezel of FP58 (and on our cases)... Firstly, we think aesthetically it looks better without it and the second reason is that there are no standards for the position of eject buttons on slot-loading drives. We've seen drives with eject button on the left, right and even close to center of the bezel, making it impossible or over-complicated to design an eject button to accommodate all possible positions.

Thank you for your reply, I bought the FP58B and the SOD02, they are a perfect fit.

And look really nice in my case smile.gif
