4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: As compared with my previous DVD burner this thing is great. I have not had the chance to test out lightscribe but it is nice to know it is there.

Cons: I had one failed data burn when I first got it, it was the second dvd burned. Has not happened since, so its hard telling if it was just a fluke or not.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Great Replacement for the old LG that gave me a read-error

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: Newegg replaced an LG that I had bought with them back in January. They no longer carried it...but did replace it with this one. Nothing but high praise for Newegg and it's customer support section. Thanks for taking care of me!

2 out of 5 eggsbelow average burner

Pros: I have this drive for a few month. The drive was inexpensive. It is a USB drive and so there was no need to open the computer case to install. Windows XP and Vista recognized the drive immediately.

Cons: It burned quite a number of coasters at max speed. At first, I thought that the quality of DVD media (no brand type) was the culprit; however, after I got a new PC with a DVD burner, I was able to figure out that this drive was the culprit, because I had no problem with the other drive using the rest of the DVD media that I had bought.

Other Thoughts: none

5 out of 5 eggsno troubles

Pros: this is not a bad way to go for an ext burner. i like how it sits vertically to save some deskspace. have done around 20 dvd burns in a row with 2 min rests inbetween and has yet to fail once. easy install

Cons: the usb cable they give is really short, i would recomend having another one for long stretches

Other Thoughts: overall good buy and i would recommend it

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: its working just fine

Cons: It might make noises when burning but mine is sitting on a pillow. i don't feel a thingie

Other Thoughts: IT seems its very picky with brand names when it comes to burning.
ATM im using TDK DVD+R to burn. Best if you buy the 100 TDK Disk Dvd+R or DVD-R from Newegg. Its way cheaper then the Brand name Stores. THis Burner also likes Disks from Sony.
