5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Comments: I got one of these luckily just before they sold out. It is really a rebadged Lite-On 1693S and is easily flashed to that or the retail Sony DRU-800A and then updated with KY05 firmware. PI never over 10/PO scans under 3 (better than the real disc) with Media Code:ricohjpn TDK discs .. they even say MIT???...

Comments: This burner has been working great, no real problems yet, and I have had it for about 3 months. Only problem is getting data fast enough to the burner to keep the read buffer up. No big deal. I recommend this burner to anyone you needs one or wants to replace one.

Comments: This is the best overall unit I have. It writes + and - DVDs without any issues and the speed is excellent. It's the only DVD drive I have ever used that has never made a coaster. I have 3 DVD drives and this is the one I use for serious authoring.

Comments: Great DVD Drive, works great, especially for the price. Only problem was that the included DVD software was cracked on arrival, but I emailed NewEgg and they solved it extremely quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent burner

Comments: This drive works great. I received within one week of ordering and installed it the same night. I haven't tried a dual layer disk as yet but I am sure it will work fine. The software package isn't too shabby. Great price!!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well but...

Comments: This player works really well when burning DVD's but when paired with another writer get's into trouble. Paired with a Lite-on cd-rw it will no longer read CD's odd. Ive yet to find a fix.
