2 out of 5 eggsthis drive sucks

Pros: Pros...hmm...it wasn't DOA

Newegg service rocks of course.

Cons: WILL NOT BURN AT ADVERTISED SPEEDS...this drive has MANY problems with it, put in the model number in a search engine and you will see numerous other people with the same problem.

My drive will only burn CD's at a maximum of 16x!!! There is no fix for this.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this drive. What's up with all the bad DVD burners on the market lately. This is the 3rd of 3 drives I've bought lately that has has SOME sort of issue with it. No fault to newegg though.

And it cant boot with the boot-up cd either....

Other Thoughts: It really works great without a dvd in the burner when u booting up

1 out of 5 eggsYuck!

Pros: none

Cons: Doesn't work!

Other Thoughts: I've tried burning four discs, three failed half way through, and one finished but can't be read. Also, my three day guaranteed shipping came in 5 days. First time ever having bad luck with newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Nice dual layer drive. First Lite-On drive I have had. Installed great with no problems. My system recognized it from the start. Comes with the software to play your favorite dvd's.
Thanks Newegg!

Cons: The cd-tray ejection is rather slow but I can live with it.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this drive is pretty good. Comes with Nero OEM software-- what else can you ask for?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat burner at a great price

Pros: -Quick burning
-It's relatively quiet (I've heard much louder drives)
-Recognizes various types of media (this is normally a given, but it's still nice to have)
-No extra software required
-Overall great buy!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: My old DVD burner was...to put it bluntly...worn out. I had used it far past its life expectancy. Hopefully this burner will carry me into the days of Blu-Ray!

5 out of 5 eggsFine monitor, yet annoying buttons

Pros: Sharp and bright.

Cons: The menu buttons are lit LED-style blue.
Buttons blink once monitor switches to standby/suspend.

Other Thoughts: Whoever came up with the blinking buttons idea should be shot; the effect in a dark room is very annoying, especially if you are trying to sleep. Due to this mis-design, you'll have to hit the power button on a regular basis.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking great

Pros: Installed easily and is working great. The extra bezel was a nice bonus, I'm still decideing whether white of black will go better with the aluminum colored Shuttle I put it in.

Cons: I agree with the comment about the jumper. With the proliferation of SATA hard drives, it's more and more common that CD and DVD drives are the only, and therefore master, on an IDE cable.
