I would rather have 1xHDD and 1xODD than 2xHDD and no ODD at all. And it's a Bluray drive... sucks to think that one day it might stop working. I would trade my 2nd HD spot anyday for the ODD.
Right now I have 2x500gb 5400rpm. If it was possible to plug the ODD in SATA1 I would have bought a 1TB 7200rpm to compensate.
I really don't know what I'm gonna do. Keep everything and HOPE nothing happens... or send back to Samsung and have nothing in the meantime.

my model has 6gb ram, 2x500gb and a bluray drive.
