Pros: Nice drive for PC Owners

Cons: Does not work with MAC. It runs, but my old DVD burner which is an older 2004 HP DVD Writer 630e blows this thing out of the water!
I was super excited about this drive too! And now to find out, there is no support for it when it says that it is on the box, and on the specs? If you're going to write software and advertise that it is MAC OS X Supported, then make sure that it is totally 100% Mac OS X Supported, and not have the user get home, and see that it goes slower than a 90-year old grandma driving a school bus during rush hour!

5 out of 5 eggsFast on our Macs

Pros: Very fast, inexpensive, solidly build DVD burner.

Cons: None that we have found

Other Thoughts: One comment made in these pages was that the person had problems with this writer on a Mac. Based on our experience with two Macs, this writer is blindingly fast on both CDs and DVDs. I must admit that I had some question having read the other review, but that is not a problem with this unit.

It is solidly built, clearly for a desktop (it ships at six pounds) and I liked the first so well I bought a second.

2 out of 5 eggsEgg for OS X

Pros: Reasonable build by modern junk standards.

Cons: Doesn't work nicely on OS X - reads at 1x speed for a Mac. External power supply - not bus powered. I did not think to look for this, as almost every gizmo I've bought in 5 years has been bus powered. Noisy as hell.

Other Thoughts: Being taken to work and left on a table.

3 out of 5 eggsBroken after a year

Pros: It looked legit.

Cons: 18 years of IT here.

We barely used this thing at all, only for emergencies when the built in burner was being used. This thing burned out after a year, won't burn at all, dead. We have always had problems with it as well, always burned horrible ISOs.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very well built external unit. My micro-ATX case did not have any place for a CD/DVD drive, but I wanted one, so I went this route and have been very pleased. Nice rubber feet to keep it from sliding around, and it feels like something that will last for many years to come.

Cons: Bigger that a lot of other external DVD drives, but it tucks nicely under my monitor and so that's not an issue for me, and also the size/construction makes it much more durable than some of the flimsy alternatives (so I guess this is not a con in my eyes at all).

5 out of 5 eggsSolid burner

Pros: Fast, no coasters, good price, solidly built

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I got this because I had one of those tiny drives that felt like I could break it with one hand, and that was never recognized by my Mac.

This one worked straight away, is fast, hasn't created any coasters, and since I don't really take it anywhere, the larger size isn't a problem. This isn't a burner you will stick in your laptop bag for portability, but it is a solidly built, high quality product.

4 out of 5 eggsIt pays to shop

Pros: Wanted a good, dependable external drive for occasional use with my netbook, didn't need to be portable.

Cons: Seemed too expensive for a DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: Almost bought it but checked eB** and they had a 20X version for half the price with free shipping.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does everything it says with no issues, a lot quieter than other drives and is a somewhat heavy sturdy piece.

Cons: You may not like the size it can be a bit big. Disk tray moves slowly(minor gripe).
