Pros: it does what its suppose to do. burns nicely, reads no problems. i had this for 3 years and it still runs.

Cons: little loud when full speed, but most drives should be the same level in terms of noise

Other Thoughts: i dont use disks very often. i use the drive to install os, or rip music disks.

5 out of 5 eggsA reason why this product wins

Pros: Low cost, free shipping, ATA compatible with Solaris, Linux, BSD.

Cons: None, except, I only ordered 2 of these. I should order another dozen.

Other Thoughts: Built a whole slew of Solaris workstations during the holidays and spec'd these inside and they burn just fine. Replaced a super-expensive Plextor unit that came with a Core 2 duo workstation rated at 16X but took more than 45 minutes to burn a 4+GB OS install image. Checked PIO vs. UDMA modes and fiddled with driver. But still slow. No changes to software or other hardware, and this new unit burned the same ISO image in just 7 minutes with 16X media. And at 1/3 the price of that other unit.

4 out of 5 eggsNot the best, not the worst

Pros: It does its job just fine. It reads and burns well. The best part of it is the price and that's about it.

Cons: It makes constant spinning noises for reading and burning. Not the best Samsung DVD.

5 out of 5 eggsGood prodcut.

Pros: An excellent DVD/CD drive and burner. I haven't had any issues with it. Read speeds are as advertised unless windows drops the controller to PIO mode which only a few programs will cause.

Cons: I can't really thing faulty about this drive.

Other Thoughts: It takes around 5 minutes to burn a complete DVD at 8X although I don't use 16X even though the media supports it because most DVD-R discs will produce errors.

At 8x with Verbatim 16x DVD-R I have never had Nero produce an error when I make it compare the disc to the source material.

Extracting RAW, but encrypted DVD from a dual layer discs takes around 20 minutes. Extracting files from a full single layer DVD takes around 3-5 minutes.

Created a backup image from a very old Jedi Knight 2 CD I let a friend borrow that scratched the heck out of it. Was the only drive that would make an error free image.
