Slimline CD/DVD Drives

Our slimline optical drives are suitable for all our Mini-ITX cases that require slimline drives. Drives come without a slimline IDE or SATA adapter or Mini SATA cable. Some Mini-ITX cases include a slimline IDE adapter (check the case description).

Tip: Most of the time you will need our Mini SATA Cable combined with a SATA Slimline Optical Drive, as most Mini-ITX motherboards now have SATA connectors.

Please note: These are *not* necessariy direct replacements for your laptop or Macintosh hard drive - connections and dimensions can be slightly different. If you intend to purchase for something other than our products - send us an email with a photo of your drive first!
