1 out of 5 eggs4yr LG DVDBrn aka Old Yeller

Pros: Black in color.
Exploded good when I put two buckshot rounds thru it.

Cons: - Kept disconnecting randomly. No software update or driver rollback ever fixed that. Didn't matter if in use or not.
- Slow write and read. Like 12th grader at a 3rd graders level.

This drive worked fine, slow but never gave me any issues. Then about once a month the last two years it would just randomly stop. I figured with all the opening and closing of the PC case I must of accidentally bumped a connecting cable. Until this last month it's just been nothing but a headache.
I spent the last 30 minutes of its use screaming at it, "You can do everything your supposed too, why can't you see the stupid (Ear muffs) disc in your (ear muffs) drive?! It's like a baby, you cook the food, and get everything ready, put it in it's mouth, all it has to do is swallow. And what does it do, spit it out.
I even let windows fix it try to fix it.... 2 hours of 'just walk away and have a drink'(waiting) to come back with it still thinking.
LG is now another company I'm done with, for this and many other reasons.

Going to drop some money on a good drive and a warranty. I'm tired of this garbage and frustration.

Other Thoughts: I don't feel like I got my moneys worth from this product. I've paid less for worse and gotten better.

3 out of 5 eggsHalf-decent reader, bad writer

Pros: Fast reads
LightScribe

Cons: Writer functionality died after a year.

Other Thoughts: Still functions as a reader, but that is mostly useless, as I bought it for writing; this drive doesn't have the features that make a good audio ripping drive.

1 out of 5 eggsLiterally Lit On Fire!

Pros: Decent read/write speeds for a decent price

Cons: After owning it for slightly less than 4 years, it literally lit on fire even though it wasn't in use. What kind of disk reader lights on fire?! LG appears to be a terrible brand. Also, it would disconnect from my computer at times and reappear after a restart.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: When it works and is recognized by Vista it works well.

Cons: Vista does not always recognize that this drive is present.
Have had too many instances where the drive does not read known good CDs or DVDs.

Other Thoughts: Still looking for a reliable DVD/CD drive that works all the time when you need it.
