2 out of 5 eggsLightscribe looks good

Pros: Quite. One of the best lightscribe's I have seen. Burns good with one problem (See Cons)

Cons: Will not read discs. CD/DVD or otherwise. I bought it thinking I would use it as a good external CDROM and I am unable to get it to read any discs.

Other Thoughts: I am now looking for a better external CD/DVD burner with Lightscribe.

2 out of 5 eggsMuch ado about Money

Pros: The brand and its proven reliability. Their internals are all I buy.

Cons: I do not get it. $50.00 for a plastic case? Sometimes Plextor takes advantage of their consumer base. They sure did it here, in aces.

Other Thoughts: Wait for a while. With only a few sales that is what most people are apparantly doing. People are not that dumb to blindly buy Plextor's every new release.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Drive

Pros: After my computer burner became unable to burn discs, I bought this and I have been very happy with it. I use it only when I need to burn discs and hopefully it will have a long life.

Cons: Nothing yet, all discs burnt have played.

Pros: This burner is incredible , I have never seen any thing this fast and reliable . Great quality DVD's great audio quality Cd's . This is the best Christmas present ever !!!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: I purchased this for my new Dell Alien because I wanted to keep the internal SATA connection and bay available for an additional HDD. Great purchase!! After living with several troublesome HP Lightscribe units for several years, most of which never really worked in DVD mode and really qualify as junk, this is a great relief. Prior to installing I downloaded the latest firmware upgrade and the unit installed flawlessly and works whisper quiet. I use Win7 64Bit and always check for upgrades. THe biggest surprise is the Lightscribe quality (in the enhanced darker mode) which is visibly (!) better than anything I experienced on the troublesome HP drives. THe unit was shipped superfast as always and arrived the 3rd day here in California. Another great Newegg experience. It is "the" place to buy from.

Cons: The enclosed Roxio software disk did not install in Win7 and aborted halfway through. I tried copying the CD to the HDD and install from the HDD, also to no avail. It always aborts at the same place, starts "rollback" and then stops and shows "interruption" and requests to try again. However, it is a dead duck. Since I only use EZ CDDA PRo I dont have a problem but users who depend on the supplied Roxio installation can have an issue here.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent drive. I bought this to avoid wear and tear on my Mac Mini's burner as I do a lot of CD's and DVD's and wanted LightScribe labeling as well. Installation was plug and play, although I had to download the latest LightScribe driver to use Toast 10 Disc Cover labeler. This thing is fast and whisper quite when burning as opposed to all the previous drives I've owned. Very satisfied!

Cons: The "Piano Black" finish shows dust and smudges.

Other Thoughts: If purchasing for a Mac, be aware that the enclosed Roxio software is Windows only.
