1 out of 5 eggsNot up to par

Pros: The price was cheap on a product that is supposedly made by Sony. It was rated for very fast burns.

Cons: I ended up returning it because it was not performing well. Trying to read DVD's was difficult. It kept giving me I/O errors. When I would play a DVD I would have lots of noise or mosaics.

Other Thoughts: It is possible I had a defective one and the others might work better. I think I will stick to Lite-On or BenQ.

4 out of 5 eggsRIPs and Burns just fine

Pros: Cheap and does the job without trouble.

Cons: None worth mentioning

Other Thoughts: If you don't know, a bare OEM drive does not come with authoring software. Don't get burned by lack of knowledge.

5 out of 5 eggsFirmware upgrade availabe

Pros: Support all DVD formats. Reliable. Quiet. Excellent burner.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: G120 is mainly made and sold in China. Product support seems only available in SONY-China website. Firmware upgrade can be downloaded from [http://www.sony.com.cn/ed/cp/ds/dl_g120.htm]. Upgrade the firmware version to MYS3.

4 out of 5 eggsSony DW-G120A-B2

Pros: Burns Fast, Easy install, not a bad drive for the price.

Cons: Had some difficulty with my favorite burning program after this was installed - Copy to Dvd, after 16 discs later and before I got to check them, found out the stuff didn't burn correctly. There seemed to be extra lead time written to disc. tried lowering speed, updating program, still same. works with Nero though no problem.

Other Thoughts: No support from Sony's website as to firmware upgrades yet. one can only hope.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent value, burns all the media I have tested at rated speeds. Works great with Sony 16X +R and -R, along with Memorex 8X +R, Memorex 2.4X DL +R, Verbatim 2.4X DL, and many others. No coasters yet after over 50 DVD-R.

Cons: 44 Minutes to burn 8037MB at 2.4X... That can be attributed to the media, however, not the drive.

Other Thoughts: 1GB or more of RAM is about the minimum for burning DL stuff and multitasking, since Nero's buffers easily eat up 200MB...
