So far, so good 12/03/2009
Good reliability so far
Lightscribe works pretty well
A bit loud
I'm usually on the lookout for high quality drives because they seem to come and go, and I had heard good things about this one, so I got one to add to my collection. It went in my case alongside a Samsung SH-183 and a Plextor 760A.
My main interest was the Lightscribe feature because my other drives don't have it, and I had a use for it. It worked welll for this, without complications.
I don't normally burn at top speed because my ancient Panasonic A120 DVD player that I am still using doesn't read the discs as well. So, I haven't tested that. But, I haven't had any problems with the discs I've burned.
The drive is on the noisy side. At 8X burning, it is louder than both of my other drives above. This doesn't really bother me.
It rips CDs quickly and worked fine with AccurateRip.
