4 out of 5 eggsburner

Pros: very quiet, 5 min install ,burns well on all CD's and DVDS I've thrown at it

Cons: ejection door catches my housing a little for a clunky in and out. adjusted it a little , but not a big enough deal to sink any time into.

Other Thoughts: I burn 100's of discs and I like it fine

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: PLEASE READ MY CONS COMMENT BELOW.
the only good comment i have is 5 eggs for Newegg, because they did they right thing and repalced my unit even though it was beyobd their 30 day limit. This is why I am a loyal Newgg customer for iver 15 years.

Cons: I gave this unit 1 egg because after the unit failed in less than 2 months, it was beyond the 30 day Newgg RMA policy limit.. I contacted the manufacturer, Gear Head and I was asked by their tech that before I returned the unit, did I install the Nero trial version, because it was required to be installed and necessary drivers were needed that were only on the CD. Now who installs drivers for a CD or DVD these days they are always PNP. However, if it is a requirement, NO where on the retail box was there a disclaimer that the included CD was necessary fro the unit to work properly. I no longer had the CD nor did I install because it was a trial version of NERO which I hate, therefore I threw it away. Now get this Gear Head would not issue an RMA due to the fact in order for them to repalce the unit it must be in the original box, all cables and the CD must be returned. They are not kidding either. I was told there was nothing they could do and was told to have a nice day and thank you for calling Gear Head.

Other Thoughts: Watch out for warranties!!
Keep EVERYTHING. This includes the original box , cables, software CD if included and all booklet and literature for at least a year. It is a good habit to get into and will save you a lot of aggrevation.

4 out of 5 eggsQuick and quiet.

Pros: Fast and quiet at all operating speeds. Has handled everything without any hitches. Door, when ejected, pops right out at you without much delay.

Bundled with OEM version of Nero 12 Essentials.

Cons: Tray feels cheap when out...be careful not to bump into when open. Tray also sounds delicate when opening but so far no issues.

Nero 12 Essentials is OEM version and has limited functionality.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Quietest DVD drive I have ever owned.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a $17.99 drive that I have owned for about 2 years because I was sick of the loud noises that it would make while reading. A good choice.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great until

Pros: This was a great drive for around 2 years.

Cons: Unfortunately, the door belt broke after 2 years. No apparent cause, just wouldn't open one day and some investigation revealed the cause. I don't think I've ever had this happen, and it may be a fluke for this brand also; or it may be a part that they went a bit TOO cheap on. No way to tell.

This drive was also just a bit harder than most to get the faceplate off. In this case it didn't matter, but if you're planning on painting it, it may be a consideration.

5 out of 5 eggsjust as expected

Pros: I wanted a super quiet DVD burner. It is exactly what I got. Comes with Nero 9 but I'm not going to use it.

Cons: Build in 2010, so in computer terms it's old tech. Not advertised to burn CDR but i haven't tried it yet. That's fine, I already expected that.

Other Thoughts: Works fine, I hope it lasts a long time, I use my drive alot.

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasts

Pros: Quiet Drive, Reads anything, Burns quickly

Cons: Does NOT last...
Drive acts like it has a timer built into it for when to die on you

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these from a major chain retail store and put one in each of my two desktops. One desktop I use heavily for burning, while the other has seen almost no disc burning at all. Almost at the exact same time, suddenly neither one will burn a disc (errors every time).
I always burn my discs at the lowest speed, and use name brand disks (mostly Sony DVD-R's). Burn failures started when trying to burn a game onto a dual layer DVD+R (after having burned a whole spindle of the same disks in the past). So I tried it on the system that never burns anything. Error after error no mater what I'm trying to burn and what disc I am using. I have wasted too much money on these drives...
Checked, cannot find a firmware update. Uninstalled Nero, tried using every program out there, even trolled the forums for an answer. Nothing works.
Not exactly sure, but i swear the problems started right after a windows update a while ago.. but cant remember when it started exactly.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i just made htpc and i used this drive. i wish it didnt have anything in front of it such as logo and other stuff but it's not a big deal.
