3 out of 5 eggsOK but...

Pros: Works and its white

Cons: Drive door sticks a little bit, sounds loud and like its going to self destruct.

Other Thoughts: LiteOn, Asus, LG, Samsung all better deals for the money. Unless you need a white faceplate.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for Music CD burning

Pros: Good for reading only. Get your programs onto hard drive. This drive works admirably for that task.

Cons: I have owned an Optiarc DVD drive for years. Alongside this, I have a Samsung CD-R drive. Music CDs burned on the Optiarc do not last nearly as long as those burned on the Samsung. Both are burned on the same brand media. Both are burned at approx half max speed

Other Thoughts: I use approx half the fastest speed. According to documentation found at various tech sites, this is superior to using the fastest speed.

Lifespan of a Music CD burned by the Sony Optiarc: 2 years
Lifespan of a Music CD burned by the Samsung: 5 years
