5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Fast and mostly quiet. Of course, like any optical drive, it does make more noise when it reads closer to it's maximum speed.

It, has so, far been able to read everything I have put in it. Which is more than I can say for the drives it replaced.

The front face of the tray extends all the way to the edges of the drive which makes for a smoother look than the typical rectangular groove you see with other drives. The edges of the face are beveled with the face protuding ever so slightly above the computer case front. All of this can be seen in the images if you look closely.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Considering Plextor's reputation, I hope to get the same reliability and use out of this drive as I got out of the Toshibas and NECs I have used in the past. All of which still work years later.

I plan on buying a few more when NewEgg gets more stock.

4 out of 5 eggsPlextor DVD Burner PX-850 SA Oem & Retail

Pros: Plextor's name is a very good quality products. You won't be disappoint. I ordered both of them from NewEgg. They came on time. The faces of this Burner look nice and the drive work as expected.

Cons: I don't know the difference between "Retail" and "Oem" until I received both of them. The "Oem" has no application CD and SATA cable. I suggested for anyone who want to order should order "Retail". If not, looking for the SATA cable alone will cost you more. The rest is o.k. both of them are working the same. The face of the slide tray of this model is a little large in length than the others. I have some problem to put on the ITX case. I have to remove the face of the tray out and cut both side a little inorder to be able to put in my ITX case.

5 out of 5 eggsUber Burner

Pros: These drives are well worth the money at twice the cost of budget drives, bought one to test it out then bought 3 more for my duplication needs. The buffer is mad smart compared to other drives, always striving for near 100% utilization when burning, even with 4 of them.

Cons: None really...the tray has a glossy front face on it, can see dust if you don't keep it clean, no biggie for me.

Other Thoughts: It's Plextor...the best of the best...you can not go wrong...

5 out of 5 eggsworks as advertised

Pros: looks great, works like Plextor said it would; handles any brand of DVD i have tossed at it. many say the price is a con, well under $40 free shipping for a very well made DVD burner is not what i call expensive.

Cons: now i want the new PX-B320SA SW

Other Thoughts: many complain about the noise, well little noisier then some but not bad at all; really on par with my four year old Plextor (don't remember the model any more) a solid well built machine

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Fast, records anything you throw into it, supports all the various cd/dvd formats, tray launches/retracts quick.

Cons: Louder compared to other DVD drives, but my CM690 case is riddled with fans, so it's already loud.

Other Thoughts: I like how SATA devices don't need to be set to master/slave unlike EIDE.
