3 out of 5 eggsOk drive

Pros: Cheap blu ray drive, works good on blu rays. No problems as of today. Plays blu ray perfectly.

Cons: When formatting Blu Ray BD-RE, it doesn't do full certification, so blu rays format rather quickly. (This is a fault of Pioneer). I dropped 2 eggs for this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Burner

Pros: - Install was seamless
- Burns and plays blu-ray and other discs, as advertised
- Quiet
- Fast

Cons: - No included software just the burner itself
- Faceplate could be fancier, it is a Pioneer, but you wouldn't know that unless I told you

Other Thoughts: - None, except could be cheaper!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well.

Pros: Does the job at the right price. Quiet.

Cons: No fancy Blu-Ray 3D support, but you get what you pay for. The activity light looks like something from 1980.

4 out of 5 eggsNo software included

Pros: Installed and worked without a hitch. Fairly quiet.

Cons: No software. Yup. I didn't read the description. I rarely do for any of the components -- unless I don't know what a feature listed in the specs is. I found some trial software online to get the dvd and bd codecs, so it's all good (for as long as the trial lasts /sigh)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat BD burner!

Pros: VERY Quiet.
I have an older 5 year old LG x12 burner and this DVD drive is the exact same speed as that older LG but at a 1/4 of the noise level.

don't know what they did but it is silent.
And I have already burned over 1000 DVDs with it and it created one coaster out of 1000 DVDs.

Great Burner.

Cons: It doesn't cook me dinner

Other Thoughts: I wish they would have created a flashier design for a faceplate. Worth stating but not complaining about.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive

Pros: Burns everything well. Fed a few different breeds of disc through it (TDK DVD and DVD+DLs, Optical Quantum BD-Rs, Sony DVDs and CDs, even some cruddy Aone Plus+ BD-Rs), and the only problem I ran into was trying to burn junk media too fast. Backed off the speed a bit from 10x to 8x (this is on media rated for 4x), and it was fine.

Checked the burn quality using DiscSpeed on a drive with scanning capabilities. Excellent scores for the media I'm using.

The LED on the front is not just some mindless blinking "busy" light, but actually goes out to tell you when a buffer underrun occurs. This is important diagnostic info for multi-burner systems.

Quiet.

Cons: Eject button is kinda stiff. Not a huge issue unless you're arthritic.

Drive is approx. 3/8" longer than most burners. Again, not a big problem unless you have a very cramped case.

Other Thoughts: Very good burner, would recommend.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected so far

Pros: The installation was simple. There were no problems with the device manager not recognizing it. The drive bay was able to open and close without getting stuck like previous internal optical drives.

Cons: I bought this for $54.99, which I thought is still price too high.

1 out of 5 eggsdriver issue?

Pros: Can't say, really, as drive has not worked normally.

Cons: Drive is recognized by the system, but doesn't eject; when i manually eject and put a disc in, media is not recognized by system (system doesnt even recognize that the drive now HAS media in it).

1 out of 5 eggs2 DOA's

Pros: None

Cons: The first one I received, wasn't recognized in the bios or in device manager and wouldn't eject and not once did the LED light come on. Tried installing in a second computer that already had a blu-ray burner, still the same issue. Sent it back and received a replacement. The replacement is exhibiting the same behavior as the first one. I am done with this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value, no issues

Pros: I bought the drive to start backing up photos that I take as my Hobby. Only filled up 3 Blu-Rays :D Haven't burned a coaster and I always do data verification.

Cons: None.
