5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, does what it's supposed to, opens fairly fast, I can't recall much noise from it, the button is easy to press.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: Some other DVD drives I've had, the button is kind of picky, and you have to press it right in the middle, or on the left, ect. This one, the button was very responsive. I'm happy with it.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It was a great drive from the start, Work great for over a year burning CD/DVD/LiteScribes

Cons: Then after a year, it just stopped working, nothing I did could get it working again, checked the connections, changed the cables, searched 9 ways to Sunday in HP Support for information on and what to do to fix it, Closest thing they have under the 1270 is two Computer Systems. I am sorry, but Video card and LAN drivers are not going to fix this issue, I am running Win 7 Ultimate and in the Drivers Manager list, its showing that its missing a driver. That is as far as I got before pulling it and using it as a wheel chock for my Tahoe...

Other Thoughts: I used to be a big supporter of HP products but over the last 3 years I personally noticed a major decline in their equipment, especially in repairing customers components, I am now steering all my current and future customers and friends away from this troubling company.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: No problems so far; does what it should.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I attempted to find the most recent drivers for this on hp's site ("Support & Drivers" > "Drivers & Software" tab), but their website can't locate it. Tried searching for "dvd1270i", "dvd1270", "DVD Writer", etc. Closest thing I could find was for the 1100 series. You can, however, find it under the "Product Support & Troubleshooting" tab, which only contains the manual, but no drivers. Not really a con seeing as I don't have any problems with the drive, but you would think HP would at least list a driver for it. It does come with a driver disc, I was just curious to see if there were a newer one available, that's all.

NOTE: You download Lightscribe designer software from their website (http://lightscribe.com) - it's not included on the disc.

2 out of 5 eggsnone

Pros: None whatsoever

Cons: I bought 10 of these cd/dvd burners from Newegg.com, back in Nov/Dec 2011, guess what they are already going out. They were doing great until the last two months, when I started wasting blank dvd-rs and I attribute it to these cd/dvd burners.
