1 out of 5 eggsAsus DRW1608P2S-D

Pros: USB drive recognised by pc.

Cons: I received a replacement drive. I burned a single layer dvd OK. It managed to burn one good dl dvd and 4 coasters. I have given up on it and am looking to purchase a reliable drive from a different manufacturer. I cannot recommend this drive based upon my experiences and growing collection of expensive dl coasters.

2 out of 5 eggsASUS external DVD-R drive

Pros: Drive was easy to install and USB drive was recognised immediately

Cons: Drive burnt one single layer dvd succesfully. After that it produced 2 dl coasters and 2 single layer coasters. In fact it failed to even write the lead in on the last disc that I tried to burn. The drive is being replaced by Newegg. Let's see how the replacement works.

Pros: None

Cons: Does not operate with Win 98SE. When you return the item you are charged for return shipping and a restocking fee. I will be out $20.00 just to find out that the device would not operate on my computer.

3 out of 5 eggs2ed Review

Pros: Everything in the first review.

Cons: In-CD by Ahead says this is a read only device. This means, you cannot format disks to act like a floppy drive.

Other Thoughts: Any tech help would be great, but I already read about as much as possible about this Asus Drive.

Cons: No light-scribe technology.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent burner

Pros: It's the most stable burner I have ever used. it can burn 16X speed on all the media I used which is pretty impressive. It is also very quiet for an external drive. It actually makes less noise than my hard drive. I would highly recommand this drive.

Cons: I do hope ASUS can improve the design a little bit. It performs very well, but since it is an external drive, having a cool look would certainly be a plus.
