3 out of 5 eggsIt's a SONY

Pros: It's black, and it's sony. Worked good for the first 7 days.

Cons: After 7 days it started using way too much system resources and is transferring at only 1MB/sec. Had to RMA it after I got a temporary CD-ROM drive so I can use my computer in the meantime.

Other Thoughts: I will re-rate it after my replacement arrives, as perhaps it was unlucky that mine failed. And all you people complaining about no software, you knew it was OEM before you bought it if you read the description.

4 out of 5 eggsGood burner for price

Pros: Burns quickly and effectively once I got it working. Plays CDs and DVDs well.

Cons: Spin-up time is pretty slow.
Did not burn at first...kept giving me errors. Finaly figured out to put it in RAW mode and force burn and that seems to have done the trick.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried DVD burning yet...still trying to decide what software to use.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks pretty good.

Pros: PRICE; No coasters yet; very quiet; quick burns.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Seems to burn just fine so far. I've only burned about 7-8 DVDs so far, but there have been no problems as of yet.

2 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: It has lasted a year now and still works.

Cons: When playing CD's it makes funny noises, sometimes it gets stuck shut because of errors, the burn quality isn't always the best.

Other Thoughts: Basically... I'm not sure if this was a faulty drive or something, but its done nothing but suck for the year I've had it. The only positive is that it has lasted a year and still works (sometimes).
