5 out of 5 eggsRecommended

Pros: This drive burns very fast and I have not had any problems with it at the moment. I am also amazed on how quiet it is.
Newegg processed the order and had the drive delivered within two days.

Cons: I had to go through four firmware upgrades, but this really isn't a con per se. The installation of these upgrades are meant to allow the device to properly function or enhance the performance of the drive.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this drive for anyone who is looking for a reliable CD/DVD burner combo. The read speed could be a bit higher...but why complain? A high quality product for a reasonably low price. Can't really beat that deal.

5 out of 5 eggsvery happy with the drive

Pros: easy installation, quite operations, descent NERO OEM software

Cons: maybe the autoplay could be a bit quicker

Other Thoughts: At first drive not recognized properly with no DVD-R 9 support, but was due to older Nero 6.3 software. Upgraded the burn engine with the included OEM version 6.6 and worked perfectly. The upgrade retains older Nero programs which was a bonus. Only a single coaster so far due to me running too many apps at the same time!

5 out of 5 eggsTop Notch Burner!

Pros: Burner works great for burning CD's and DVD's! So far all of the functions work great. The NERO 6 software is very easy to use and has many functions and can be updated. My wife is facinated with the Vision Express, she has been making picture slide shows for several days now.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is a great procuct! I have been using Samsung drives/burners for a couple of years now and have been very happy with the quality for the money!

4 out of 5 eggsFor the price, it gives descent performance.

Pros: It burns good dvds. Runs quiet. Takes up less space than my dvd rom drive inside my pc. Can read all of my dvd movies. It is relible, it has not broke down on me. I

Cons: Kind of slow to read a disc if you want to play a movie, but read time is 12-15 secs before it starts playing a movie. The Nero software that comes with it is oem, you cannot access all of the features of the software.

Other Thoughts: I am new to using dvd burning software and dvd burners. If you know how to properly use and burn with dvd burning software, regardless of the type of software you use, then you should have no problems. I feel ide interface type dvd drives can read dvd movies faster. You might want to try a different type of software with this burner to get better performance.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Recieved the item quickly, and it works as advertised. Much quieter than my previous ---- on brand (add any 4 ltr word you prefer). Hoping it will work longer than 6 months. Thanks Newegg.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for might not apply to this item. Name brand, low price, doesn't sound like a turbo-charger in my case. What more can you want? Maybe fore-sight to match my hind-sight.
