No problem reading a data CD to an image file. No problem burning a 16x Verbatim DVD-R.
Does not write at 8x to 8x Verbatim DVD+R DL for a desired length of time. The first one I wrote mostly wrote at 6x with some 8x write time, but hardly worth noting. The write rate was all over the place, dropping to 4x, up to 6x, sometimes 8x, down to 0, up to 6, and ended at 4. Second Verbatim DVD+R DL only wrote at 4x the entire time.
Could not find any firmware anywhere online for this drive, so I can't test to see if a firmware update would help with these issues.
I've not tested this drive for rewritable media or Blu-Ray media but my test results on good Verbatim 8x DVD+R DL do not indicate this drive is worth purchasing. I'd just as soon go back to LG, which has its own problems. My LG Blu-Ray drive stopped writing DVD+R DL's correctly after a year and it never properly wrote to rewritable DVD media.
