Pros: Multiple interface options

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent burner

Pros: Fast. Reliable, even with cheap media. Works flawlessly whether through USB 3.0 or eSata. I even used it on an older USB 2.0 desktop without a hiccup.

Cons: None, ok a lower price would be better. I don't know if the previous reviewers got a bad drive, outdated firmware (I always check and update mine), bad media or if it is a case of user error, but this is by far the best burner I have owned. I have made 0 coasters and have thusfar burned several DVD-DL (my old drives used to make coasters all the time) and BD-R.

Other Thoughts: I decided to submit my review because I think it is misrepresented by the other 4 reviews. I bought this drive after a few online reviews and drive comparisons. I wanted an external Bluray burner to use with my Dell Precision M6600 so I could backup my customers' data on something bigger than DVD-DL.

1 out of 5 eggsDont buy if you burn BD

Pros: None

Cons: Everything. Its shiny so lots of fingerprints. it can only burn to two types of DL BD 50GB and doesnt do a good job at that. Support stinks and replies with usless information. Plex Utils fails to update both software and firmware. Plextor is now off my list of go to brands of burners.

Other Thoughts: Dont waste your money

1 out of 5 eggsBought new, got used

Pros: Puchased a supposedly new product, but recieved a box that had obviously been already opened, and the items inside were re-wrapped. Don't pay the new price for a refurb product.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Burner Ever

Pros: Creates nothing but coasters 3 out of 4 times.

Cons: Creates nothing but coasters 3 out of 4 times.

Other Thoughts: Being a video producer, I burn blu-ray and DVD several times a day. This is the worst burner I've used in many years.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: Looks like a sweet peice of equipment. I have owned this for about 2 weeks . I have the external and internal models. I use this one by the esata conection I have on my Toshiba qosmio 880. This thing is quite. Also it comes with cyber link power dvd 10 siut with Power2go v6 . I upgraded to power20 7 for $23.00 even though I don't like cyberlink at all becuase of bad bad customer service. Any way I have burned about 50 dvd+r dl and have not yet had any coasters or bad burns. I will updatethis review in the future.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I have to say I held of buying this when it was just out and costing $229.95. I knew it would go down but I gave in and bought it. Well sure enough I set it up start using it at about an at about 2:oo am I check it out at newegg to see the specs and the price dropped to $189.00. I called Newegg in the morning and without any problem at all they credited me the differance. Thanks Newegg.
