You started a thread and asked for comments but you seem to be doing a fine job talking to yourself. ;-)
Just to give you some company, here are my comments on this brand of drive:
I received my i6000 in July with the TSL-462 and immediately had problems with the drive not spinning up, not recognizing factory pressed CD's and causing errors in Dell Media Exchange when trying to read DVD's.
It was replaced with another one that was just as bad. I sent the replacement back, too. I now have a Hitachi-LG brand GC-C4243 which operates perfectly.
I have had many problems with Samsung SN324 and TSL462 drives and I don't ever want another one in any of my machines. I wish Dell would stop buying them because they are just too unreliable in my opinion. After all, mass production optical drive technology is over 10 years old and Samsung still can't get it right. Who needs their junk?
