3 out of 5 eggsGreat at the start

Pros: Cheap, burns really fast, easy to configure and connect.

Cons: First one stopped being able to burn DVD's after about 6 months, then gave reading anything above a CD after 3 years, second drive gave up burning DVD's after 2 years.

Other Thoughts: Great drives if you are looking to save money, although reliability is nothing like their hard drives.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the best writer

Pros: they worked

Cons: I purchased two of these to go with my new build. They do everything they said they would but with major issues. Firstly, these drives are definitely not meant as an add-on to an entire build. As replacements for a factory built system, maybe. After a couple of months they just quit working. After updating everything possible

Other Thoughts: I thought samsung would be a good company for dvd writers... Maybe I was wrong

1 out of 5 eggsNever worked

Pros: light weight

Cons: Recognized by motherboard and Windows but discs were not recognized. If Windows recognized it then there were no loose cables. This happened on two computers.

Other Thoughts: First Samsung product that did not work for me.

4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: I prefer IDE based drives, since it frees up a SATA port for my SSD's etc.

Cons: Win7 and other s/w can be finicky when it comes to IDE vs SATA. Some s/w just won't recognize the IDE drive. I put SATA based drive in and problem is solved. Maybe I have wrong UEFI settings. Not really a con, since my IDE based drive still works.

2 out of 5 eggsToast

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Its now in the trash. Always had a habit of spinning extremely fast at odd times. I heard a loud *POP* and a cd had exploded into a million pieces. Never seemed very fast.

Other Thoughts: It was cheap. Didn't expect a lot.

4 out of 5 eggsit's a cheap/ok priced burner

Pros: Fast & easy to use.

Cons: Died within 3 weeks of usage.
It'll read the discs but wont write them.
Wasted over 20 discs trying to figure out what was wrong with it.
I thought it was the brand i was using but no it just quit writing the discs. (i tried three diff brands of dvds)

Other Thoughts: I'll try to get a replacement or a refund.
It was worth the money paid at the time.
I just wished it would had lasted longer.

Pros: With a IDE to SATA converter it works fine.

Cons: Came free with my order... I have no use for an IDE, only SATA...

Other Thoughts: Its nice that Newegg gave it to me for free but I have no use of it. :/
