4 out of 5 eggsRecommended

Pros: I've now owned this drive for close to a year, so I think I can fairly evaluate this drive. It is reliable, durable, fast and reads/burns just about anything. It's cheap, works with every burner software out there and within the last year I have already gone through 2 other burners. This one is still going strong.

Cons: Lack of FW updates, loud when read/writing at anything over 12x, but then again all optical drives are.

5 out of 5 eggsUhhh, just give it away why don't you...

Pros: So I haven't actually received it yet, so I can't comment too much, but take into consideration that my brand new Plextor DVD burner (not DL) was 350 bucks when it came out. It stopped reading "burned" media after about 1 yr. I'll never spend a lot of l00t on an optical drive again. for 30 bucks, this is a super bargain.

Cons: It may be DOA, it may not. I'll let you know when get it.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Balanced Burner and Reader

Pros: SATA, excellent recording quality, and fast reading speed.

Cons: None to me

Other Thoughts: If you only want the best recording performance, the Samsung 202/203 series may be a better choice. But If you want a burner both good at recording and reading, this one is a better choice. Since both 18X and 20X speeds are marketing gimmicks, you should use 8X-16X for best recording quality.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't know yet

Pros: I like that it is SATA. My old IDE CDRW was a piece of well, you know...

Cons: I can't get it to reconize my CD's half the time. Vista is a pain, I can't tell if its the OS or if the drive is bad.

Other Thoughts: I need to update the firmware and drivers and see if it changes anything...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, a bit loud though

Pros: This is a quality drive, and i expect nothing less from SONY. I have not had one burn error, though I've only burned about 20 discs (Verbatim -R). However i still see this as a good sign that

Cons: The drive is fairly loud, seems to be especially loud when handling Cds.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line its a great drive, its just loud when its reading/writing. Don't forget to get good quality blank DVDs, most of the time when you have burn errors its because of low quality discs.
