5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Quick, Quiet, and handles a wide range of media

Cons: Comes with Lightscribe but the lightscribe disks still are expensive.

Other Thoughts: This is a great DVD-R Drive. And the fact it comes with light is an added bonus for when the price on those disks come down. but overall this is the best bruning drive I have ever had.

Pros: No problems at all. Works great right out of the box. Lightscribe is awesome, super easy to make a disc. Only takes 20 minutes at best setting.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Super low price at newegg, received in 3 days, I don't know why anybody wouldn't buy one!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: I've been a NEC DVD-R fan for a long time, but decided to try this Benq. It works just fine, and doesn't take nearly as long to recognize an inserted DVD as either of my NEC's do. It has recognized all the blanks I've put in, and burned them fine so they play fine. Even comes with decent software.

Cons: I'm not sold yet on the lightscribe deal; it's somewhat awkward to install and use, it's slow, and the DVD's are (comparitively) expensive. Perhaps this will change in time, if lightscribe doesn't go the way of other ideas that never quite made it.
