Sony and NEC have combined their optical expertise in the joint venture, Optiarc. The result are the Optiarc DVD and CD drive series.

With write speeds as high as 20X for DVD+R and DVD-R, they may be the fastest SATA optical drives in the industry. Even at these speeds, there's no need to worry about buffer under-runs, with 2MB of memory buffering your data. Optiarc's technology adjusts itself automatically to the small variations in each drive and each disc as it writes, giving optimum performance time after time. (Crap discs will still give you crap results, but it will be the best it can be even then.) All the features you've come to expect in a modern DVD/CD burner: multiple media formats, inexpensive price, fast operation, and now backed by both Sony and NEC.

It's always your decision, but I wish I had a dead drive right now so I could replace it with one of these.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works Great for burning CDs and DVDs.

Cons: Even though it's SATA, it doesn't seem to be any faster than my other IDE burner. Not sure if it's the drive or my setup.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive for cheap

Pros: Great drive. Does pretty much everything that you would expect a good DVD burner to do.

Cons: Does not come with any cables, box, or any of the paperwork. Had to go through customer support to find out why it just came in a box wrapped in bubble wrap without anything but the drive by itself.

Other Thoughts: Just make sure you have the SATA cables you need before you buy this drive.
