5 out of 5 eggsgood drive

Pros: Good drive
Somewhat quiet
Supports all of the DVD formats and dual-layer

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a failing DVD-ROM and a CD-RW drive. I now use this and another CD-RW drive. Also, since this is SATA, the cables are more manageable, and you can put a lot of these in one system if you have enough SATA ports.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfactory......

Pros: Fast, really fast. Can burn a lot of diff types of media. And fast. Did I mention fast?

Cons: Feels cheap. Wasn't recognized by my burner software for some reason - but was recognized by another software package...

Other Thoughts: Feels cheap because it was cheap and that's why I bought it - just warning others so they aren't expecting a Rolls Royce and get a Honda. But it's a fast honda. ;)

4 out of 5 eggsall around good product

Pros: reads every disc I throw at it. burns everything I've tried to burn and even the light scribe works great.

Cons: Makes weird noises, not dangerous clunking, drive bad noises, but just weird noises for a dvd burner... I bought two of these for two new computers I was building and both make the same sounds when starting up a disc. I've checked, and everything is hooked up correctly so I have to assume since it's my first lightscribe disc, it's got to be the light scribe stuff making the noises.

4 out of 5 eggsNOT A SONY

Pros: its a $20 dvd burner.......you cant expect much....it works. 1 year warranty with new egg

Cons: re branded optaric, nothing about it is sony except for the 1 year new egg replacement and the last 3 optaric drives ive had all failed within a year and you'll notice this is the only optaric new egg sells that has more than a 30 day return/warranty.

Other Thoughts: for $20 its hard to complain.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product great company

Pros: Came as depicted, installed easy as can be. Vista saw them & they started burning quick as you can get. With using 16x media.

Cons: None that I know of. And a note to all those who complain about OEM products. It's cheaper and that's why you don't get cable or software, if you really need that stuff spend the couple extra bucks and get the retail version.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is as fantastic as always, been using them for years & never an issue.
