1 out of 5 eggsNEVER AGAIN

Pros: Great read speeds, good writes, good media compatibility

Cons: When I finally got some lightscribe media and tried to burn a label, it absolutely would not recognize it. Kept saying there was no disc in the drive and to put in a lightscribe disc with the label side down. Tried multiple brands of lightscribe media including HP and Verbatim, making sure the label side was down. no joy. Did some research and found out a firmware update might be necessary. Tried updating the firmware from what it shipped with (SB01) to the newest (SB02). Bricked my drive. It still is recognized by the BIOS and windows but will no longer read or recognize any disc whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Samsung made a big mistake going with this rediculous 1 click firmware update program, it doesn't allow you to backup your current firmware, once you click ok on the warning popup when you run it, it automatically starts the fw upgrade without making you tell it to start, and obviously there was a serious issue with the new firmware. As it is only sold (at least by newegg) as an OEM drive, the warranty is about non existent. Now I have to purchase another optical drive. I will NOT be buying another samsung drive.
