5 out of 5 eggsexcellente buy

Pros: this is excellent. CHEAP and works fantastic(ally). I use external USB2 case and it works fine

Cons: not that i can think of

Other Thoughts: sometimes Nero 6.0 doesnt recognize the 16X speed... but when I use speed test, it shows up to the correct speed. go figures.

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth, fast and inexpensive

Pros: Installed easy. Have burned both data DVDs and Video DVDs. Does the job on both. Very quiet performance. I would recomend to anybody.

Cons: No cons so far.

Other Thoughts: NOTICE - Comes with Nero software. You will need to buy an upgrade from Nero ($xx) to burn DVD Video unless you already have Nero 6 Ultra.

4 out of 5 eggsThe only review you need to read

Pros: Great Bang for the Buck
Burns well

Cons: Issue with some memorex CDRs
May try to flash upgrade
Playback of DVD movies choppy, make sure you have another ROM drive for playback

Other Thoughts: I have bought 4 of these drives, no major issues, If you are looking for a decent drive and want to save some cash I would recommend it

5 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: Pretty decent DVD burner, I sold my sony because it sucked and got this one. This burns really good much better than my sony, out of 40 DVDs no failed burns yet=) very happy with this burner.

Cons: After haveing it for as long as i did seems the button for the tray to come out is kind of loose, not that big of a deal.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Flaw-less Read/Write, Quiet, Burns and reads all formats, Burnt every variety of media i've gave it thus far (including the cheap no namebrand stuff) at different speeds, No Coasters whatsoever yet.

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: You can say I put alot of stress onto burners I own. At least 20 burnt a week. I've burnt movies, data cds, and console backups and this burner hasn't let me down once yet. And if it does I'll be sure to look at the media first haha. Most of the other burners i used to own showed some kind of wear or drop in peformance by this time but this burner works just the same as it did when I first got it.
