1 out of 5 eggsSlow,VERY SLOW, did I mention it was SLOW??

Pros: It was $22.99 and the color of Black.

Cons: It will begin to read a CD DVD and whine louder as it reads/writes faster. Then after 5 seconds the noise goes down and so does the speed. So you get 5 seconds of rocket speed followed by seconds to minutes of 'finishing' the disc. The reason I mention this is since 1998 I've owned a CD or DVD drive and they've all had that same fault.

Other Thoughts: Is it possible to make a DVD drive that will BUILD to a speed AND STAY THERE UNTIL THE JOB IS COMPLETED?

I'd pay $20 more for that feature!!!
I guess if you're going to buy the drive you might as well since drives $40 more aren't going to be without this THING I described.
Oh Well, it was only about $23 with shipping and tax.
You mean you live in a state that doesn't TAX internet sales? Lucky you :-)

1 out of 5 eggsread errors and no new firmware

Pros: It worked sometimes for reading and it's cheap.

Cons: It had constant read errors and there is no new firmware to update this drive.

Other Thoughts: I installed the drive on a Windows Vista x64 machine. All seemed fine until I tried to rip a DVD with DVDFab. DVDFab was unable to even open the DVD (read errors). I ripped with my other SATA drive and then attempted to burn with this drive. The burn went OK, but then the verification step failed with read errors (my other SATA drive has no such issues).There are no new firmwares for this drive, so I had to RMA it.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work

Pros: Newegg was quick to give me a credit when I requested an RMA. Customer service at Newegg is good.

Cons: The drive would not read any recordable media, burned or new recordable disc. Would not even do a simple CD-R disc.

Did not come with the advertised LightScribe software.

Other Thoughts: Samsung doesn't support this drive on their website and they don't even put their name on the drive.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems OK

Pros: Nice price, burns cds well. Burns and plays dvds well.

Cons: This drive would not load 2 of 2 programs I had stored on HP CDs. It would get to certain files during the installation and would not load them. I load these programs on new builds and this is the first time that I've had this problem. I hooked up an old DVD Rom I had laying around through the USB and I was able to load the programs.

Other Thoughts: I had no problems loading programs on stored non-HP media.

1 out of 5 eggsno-go in Vista x64

Pros: Price, ease of install

Cons: Will not burn CD's. Burns DVD'd fine. I have Windows Vista 64 bit edition, and trying to burn CD's with any software does not work. The applications go through the burn process, show completed and eject the disk, but nothing is written to the disk.

In checkng the drive itself while trying to write through windows explorer the write speed is grayed out, which leads me to believe that it is probably a driver or firmware issue, but after putting far more time into searching for an updated driver or firmware, with zero success: Samsung doesn't even recognize this as one of their drives. I did find a Samsung drive that is supposedly cross-referrenced to this one but it gives an incompatable message error on trying to install. And, Samsung does not even recognize or list the OEM, which is hard coded into the drive.

Still don't know whether it's the unit, firmware, or the driver that's defective, but does it really matter, since you cannot update the driver or firmware anyway?

Other Thoughts: If you never want to burn CD's and only plan to read previously burned CD's, the drive is fine. It read and burns DVD's great, it's very quiet, and it can read CD's. But, if you want the ability to write to CD media, or want the ability to do firmware updates, this drive doesn't cut it.
