2 out of 5 eggsREAD THIS BEFORE BUYING!

Pros: This drive works well out of the box. Burns ok, Lightscribe is a cool function that worked well.

Cons: leans to premature failure. I just sent off for my 3rd drive. first one stopped burning, second one, lightscribe failed first then drive failed to read discs.

Other Thoughts: I really don't have the time to constantly be sending drives in for warranty. I want them to work decently and have a reasonable life.
I am disappointed in asus. I expected better of them after owning other asus products.
if you want a reliable and steady drive, this isn't it.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Drive

Pros: Quiet and Fast. Need I say more...probably, it has a strong lense allowing it to read many dvd-ram discs I knew were scratched. Makes this an awesome adition if video editing is your thing.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is an affordable, quiet drive. ASUS has done an excellent job, I have recomended this drive to my friends, I love it.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is the ideal drive!

Pros: CD & DVD burning an A+.
Plays DVDs like a champ.
Lightscribe was an awesome bonus!
Lightscribe detail was just as I
imagined it would be. This is the last drive you will ever buy (for your current system).
It's rather quiet.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: I recemend installing the free copy of NERO that comes with the drive.

4 out of 5 eggsNo software for lightscribe

Pros: VERY QUIET. says it works with DVD+R DL disks.

Cons: No software for lightscribe, no cable, came just wrapped in bubble wrap and a box. Has a high pitch sound when a disk is loaded but not being accessed. Slow CD access.

Other Thoughts: This should have a lightscribe program disk included and they need to get rid of the high pitch sound.

5 out of 5 eggsBurn Baby Burn

Pros: Great performance for the price and very quiet. Great read speed and fast when ripping DVD movies.

Cons: Tray a little flimsy but nothing I can't live with.

Other Thoughts: At first had some issues when burning DVD video with certain media brands like Ridata would start burn process but then just freeze. Updated firmware from 1.06 to 1.10 and now nonstop burning.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Drive

Pros: Easy to install, worked like a charm to replace my old DRU-120A first-gen drive that couldn't burn to new media, and it doesn't seem to be picky about what brand of media you use (Tried Verbatim, Dynex and FujiFilm DVD+R's/CD-R's so far with 0 coasters)

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Fast burning, DL support, lightscribe.

Cons: Lightscribe is pointless with the price of the media. somone needs to start making a stick on lightcribe cover for discs. just use a cd printer unless you have the money for lightscribe media.

Other Thoughts: easy installation
