5 out of 5 eggsthe right iHAS

Pros: works great for burning identical, one-to-one copies of disc images with proper firmware support

Cons: Comes with a newer version stock firmware, but can be easily "updated" to an older version of stock firmware.

Other Thoughts: I actually had to "update" the firmware to an older edition of the stock, which was simple. Then and only then would a certain "software tool" be able to update the firmware to the "augmented" firmware. Once I downgraded the stock that came on it to the old version of stock, it worked fine.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive, B model

Pros: a b revision model with lightscribe. was able to flash burnermax on it and have had no trouble burning games with verbatim discs so far.

Cons: not a big deal but this model has the gl1B firmware. burnermax only works on gl1A. so you're going to have to crossflash it to gl1A and then run burnermax. i had no idea what that was but i looked it up and was able to figure it out in about 20 minutes. so not a big deal just a heads up to everyone getting this for burnermax

Other Thoughts: a drive with lightscribe and its a b model for this price? one of the best things i've ever bought online!

5 out of 5 eggsRevision B

Pros: It's a revision B model. Took one day to receive it! Thank's Newegg.

Cons: It came with the GL1B firmware. So you can't install GL1A, but it doesn't matter. You can inslall directly the iXtreme burner firmware and it will work like a charm!

5 out of 5 eggsRev B model

Pros: Ordered on November 17, 2012, arrived Nov 20. It's a revision B mode with firmware GL1B. At $25, you won't find one cheaper elsewhere!

I installed it into an external USB enclosure and it works great!

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Retail packaging with SATA cable and Nero Essentials.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a B!

Pros: Version B! Took less than 10mins to put new firmware on. Super quiet. Arrived in 1 days time. Will be buying 5 more next week. I see them selling elsewhere online for $70.00, so buy them while their still available.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine; was a version B

Pros: .Version B, came with SATA cable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Works fine for my purposes. It was a version B drive, so I was able to flash the firmware just fine. I wouldn't be too worried with them running out of version B's and switching over to version C anytime soon. The product description says 2 MB of cache, and the version C is only 1 MB of cache, so they can't just substitute it without changing the description
