I have one in my computer and it seems fine. OEM means that it will probably be without manuals. I quote.....'Please Note: This is an OEM version and does NOT come in a Retail Box. OEM pack includes manual, drive and software'

The Pioneer 106 or A06 is a good drive from what I have read. Generally good compatibility with DVD blanks and writes pretty fast (at the same nominal speeds such as 2x or whatever, compared with other writers at same nominal speed).

With some OEM writers, they may not come with the full software bundle, but it seems not to be the case for this one according to Gandalf's link, so go for it.
