5 out of 5 eggsRoxio CD and DVD Creator 6.x

Pros: The drive has worked as intended

Cons: This is one of those new drives that didn't seem to work with Roxio's CD and DVD Creator 6.X. The drive doesn't show up for me within this software, and all updates do not seem to help this software along.

Other Thoughts: Nero worked fined with drive, so I'm not out anything. I should probably upgrade one of these days to the latest Roxio's product, but haven't had the cash to do so.

3 out of 5 eggsit works, but its loud

Pros: the drive works perfectly.

Cons: its a little loud for my taste.

Other Thoughts: of course "loud" is a subjective term. compared to the rest of my case, this is at least twice as loud when it spins up. otherwise, its a great drive for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsI like it...

Pros: Price, sound(or lack there of), simple/classic design.

Cons: So far, none. (Although, some that like their system to have a bit more "bling" might be put off by its simple outward apprearance...me, i'm all about performance).

Other Thoughts: Please remember, I've only had this drive for about a week, but I have to say, I absolutely love it compared to the Plextor that I had previously
