5 out of 5 eggsDON'T USE MEMOREX WTH THIS !!!!

Pros: This has no fan in it like my old burner. That fan went bad and was loud as hell. Always on and ready to go. Works great with Sony 8X and TDK 8X. Comes with everything to get you burning same day. Lookds cool on it's side with little stand. Stick with media that Liteon recomends.

Cons: THIS DOES NOT LIKE MOMOREX DVD-R 16X. Everything I burned with memorex media looks like hell. Picture stops but audio keeps going. Same media worked fine with old burner.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Picked this up for versatility and have not been dissapointed. Very fast DVD burner and *very* quiet. I was also impressed that it came with Nero 6 OEM and Nero Vision Express 2.

I think an earlier poster got conusfed between burning speeds and AVI to DVD encoding speeds. All AVI to dvd movie burning setup takes a long time because you have to recode. That has nothing to do with the DVD burner itself. The actually burn time is lightning fast.

It looks cool in an old school way. Everything is very smooth and bug free, as good as an internal drive (I think better in some ways). Required no driver.

Came from newegg in a nice looking retail box with all the trimmings. Delivered quickly as well and on time.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I think an earlier poster got conusfed between burning speeds and AVI to DVD encoding speeds. All AVI to dvd movie burning setup takes a long time because you have to recode. That has nothing to do with the DVD burner itself. The actually burn time is lightning fast.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Great product just got it 3 days ago, burned at 4X in about 15min and at 16x at 2 min. and the great part is its is vertical so it fits right between my pritner and speakers.
Recomend this to a first buyer, and person who is looking for resonable price.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for functionality.

Comments: This is a little bulky for mobility, bt, it does it's job. Very well, in fact. No errors, no coasters, 3 minute DVD rip, 10 minute DVD burn to new disc. Newegg.com delivers the hardware as usual.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product...

Comments: This DVD burner has done the job. I have only had one coaster out of fifty dvd burns so far. New Egg gave me a great deal that is unbeatable in the external dvd market. In my opinion, this is a great buy.
