    *sigh* ... to think I paid $350 for the Sony 4x drive last year.

    "OEM / Bare" means it doesn't come in the fancy Sony box with a manual or any software. So, assuming you've got an open connector on an IDE cable and a few extra screws to fasten it in the case, you're set. If you use Windows, it will probably have the drivers you need. Otherwise, search Sony's site for drivers and other free software downloads. You may consider installing DLA if you do a lot of data backup.

    When I buy PC parts, I almost always buy OEM to save a few bucks. Usually the software that comes with the hardware isn't worth the $.

    You wont need drivers but you will need software to burn discs with, i.e. Nero, Roxio or something similar.
