4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

Pros: Burns all media with no problem.

Cons: For some crazy reason it will not play F.E.A.R. It installs it with no prob but when I try to play the game in that drive it just doesnt see it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: - Inexpensive burner by a reliable brand.
- 16x CD-/+R burning (that's mostly what I use it for).

Cons: - A little noisy, as to be expected.
- Sometimes makes odd noises, but no problems.

Other Thoughts: I've had this burner for almost 6 months now, and have gone through 20+ DVD-/+R's and countless CD's, no errors that I can think of. For the price it is good, which gives it a 5 rating. If I was spending more I would expect a bit quieter operation and quicker speeds.

Pros: This is the best and quietest burner I have owned so far. Fast too.

5 out of 5 eggsbest ive seen

Pros: ive had about 4-5 dvd burners since they have come out, this one is by far the best so far, its real fast, and so far i have had NO errors, and in the 2 days ive had it, ive copied over 10 dvd's and like 15 cd's for when i go back to school...i love this thing and everything asus makes

Cons: none so far, yet to have a coaster, great product

Other Thoughts: only thing i would do is go to asus' website and update the firmware, it runs even quicker and more efficient with the update

5 out of 5 eggsINCREDIBLE

Pros: *Quiet!
*Fast!
*Cheap!
*Worth the money!
*oh and did i say Quiet??

Cons: Heavy 0.o (but im sure thats not really important..)

Other Thoughts: Well at the moment my motherboard, cpu cooler, cd/rw drive, and dvd/rw drive, are all made by ASUS. And one thing which I am certain of is the fact that all ASUS products are actually perfect in design, performance, and uniqueness (in this case DDSS II which is amazing in my opinion). Im not a salesman for ASUS but I can assure you that this dvd/rw is the best on the market in its league, no other retail brand can match. Thanks =D.
