Yes any SATA DVD/RW will work in Win7.
An IDE OD will work if you have the connections on your board.
I actually have that unit in one of my rigs.
Honestly they're all pretty much the same brand wise.
This is a better deal.

Wow, the Egg has been raising prices. My preferred drive used to be $17.99 and now it's $19.99 like the ASUS.

I've used this CD/DVD burner for years without problems, and I just bought another one for my Sandy Bridge system. The reason I initially chose it is that MaximumPC magazine recommended it for one of their low-cost builds. I haven't regretted the choice.
