4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Works exactly as advertised.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Reason for others having a problem burning is because this is a DVD-ROM, not a DVD-RW. Please avoid trashing products if you have no idea what you are talking about.

1 out of 5 eggsSony Optiarc (Update)

Pros: There are no pros because this burner failed to properly work for the "second" time!

Cons: I wouldn't recommend this item to "anyone in the world" because it's garbage! There are perhaps hundreds of thousands of Sony Optiarc Burners sitting in warehouses worldwide with the same defect. Inspected in 2 different computers, and in the both failed recognition. What kind of QC Inspectors does the manufacturer have as Staff Members? Is this the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse? There are innumerable amount of people complaining how this piece of junk will not burn DVD's!

Other Thoughts: Neweggs needs to ban this product from their shelves before it taints their good name of service.

1 out of 5 eggsSony Optiarc (Bad Experience)

Pros: Uploads movies like any other DVD Burner.

Cons: This gave me a massive headache. Once installed, Sony Optiarc Burner erased some files in the computer which made me re-install the entire Windows XP Software. This burner will not burn DVD discs. This burner will not copy any CD-R discs. This burner does not read any CD-RW discs.

Other Thoughts: Seems like the manufacturer did not properly inspect Sony Optiarc burners on the assembly line. Who knows how many defected burners they have in stock by the millions. This thing is going back to the warehouse for a replacement!

5 out of 5 eggsNice Unit

Pros: Nice unit. Works well for simple DVD ROM. Machine recognized it right-away.

Cons: Little loud on spin-up - kinda retro!

Other Thoughts: not the units fault - I didn't think to check size. This unit is shorter than the one I replaced - so it now sits back in my case instead of flush. Didn't want to drill holes to move it out.
