5 out of 5 eggsNice DVD Drive

Pros: Have Ordered 2 of these drives prior to this one. They have all worked well, with the exception of one. The tray is a bit sticky. Other than that, they all record and play back Dual Layer DVDs with no problems. Dual Layers have a tendency top be very picky when recording. One thing I might mention. Do spend the extra money when buying Dual Layer DVDs. I have found VERBATIM dual layer DVDs to be the absolute best with very few coasters. I would definitely NOT recommend MEMOREX Dual Layer DVDs (cheaper than Verbatims). I have had terrible luck with these with high burn failure rates. In this case, you do get what you pay for

Cons: Other than one with a sticky tray, they have all worked well.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: None

Cons: Unit not manufactured by Sony.

Other Thoughts: Buyer Beware!!!! This device is not manufactured by Sony. The nameplate shows the device is designed by Sony but the manufacturer is Philips & Liteon Digital Solutions Corporation. I purchased four of these and returned them all.

4 out of 5 eggsOptiarc Internal DVD Burner

Pros: It worked out of the box. I cannot comment on its overall capabilities at this time because I haven't tried them out.

You can install your software programs without difficulty, however.

Cons: Unlike my earlier EIDE Sony, nothing else came with this, so I don't know what to use with this.

You cannot by default play ANY DVD on a fresh installation of Windows 8. I would have paid more money for software designed to work with this.

Other Thoughts: Your upgrade from Windows XP WILL NOT be seamless. You cannot play any movie dvd unless you download a separate independent player like VLC media player, etc.

Why should the customer have to spend an hour or more researching on the internet what play software might work with windows 8 ?

Don't get me started on Windows 8. Wait till you get to the guest account.
