2 out of 5 eggsPoor Compatability

Pros: Fast, quite, easy installation

Cons: Required Firmware upgrade to burn 16x DVDs - Will not burn playable DVDs when using sony or ritek ridata discs.

Other Thoughts: Bought this drive for it's low price. Burned about 10 linkyo discs and played back no problem. Ran out of the linkyo and started using ritek ridata discs. The disc burns correctly, but will not play on any of my stand alone players. Bought some Sony DVD-Rs, and same problem. Burned the same project on the same discs using my philips drive and they play just fine. This drive does not have a wide enough compatability for playback, do not buy this drive.

2 out of 5 eggsDied after 2 months

Pros: Cheap, seemed to work well for 2 months, although I admit that I haven't actually tried to burn a dvd, just using it as a reader.

Cons: Something's shot. Whines during the boot up, comp hangs when trying to detect IDE devices. I'm thinking it's junk.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter 7 months starts to hiccup

Pros: Quiet, Fast Burner.
Can set book type to DVD-ROM.

Cons: I have been running this for about 7 months. In the last month I have had a problem with it recognizing blank DVD's when first inserted. Open drive and reinsert and it will recognize the blank DVD. Had this problem with 5 different types of blanks so its not the media.

Other than that I have burned at least 200 DVD's with it successfully.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: This drive sat inside my new empty case for around two months, with no problems at all.

Cons: After building my computer I used this drive to install software from cd's without any problems. I then tried to watch a dvd and my computer kept rebooting. Upgraded the firmware and then Power DVD would lock up. So far this drive a piece of junk as far as I'm concerned.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I just ended up with a lemon and as a rule this drive is good, however; I contacted LG on 4-2-06 about this problem and after eight days I still have not received my replacement. I am going to call them again tomorrow. If things change I'll be back to update.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent in every way...LG has always been my go to drive for CD/DVD Burners as well as CD/DVD ROM Drives. Not one coaster out of around 30 DVD Movies and 6 Data CD's-do not expect any either...This drives ROCKS!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Very Fast with ALL media, although I do wish I could burn at 16X with some leftover 8X DVD's from my old LG 8X Burner. My old BenQ drive would burn 8x media @ 16x. Not a complaint, just a thought.
