5 out of 5 eggsExcellent bang for the buck

Pros: Works awsome, very fast read and burn speeds for the price. No coasters yet

Cons: It will seldomly at random spin extremely fast (you can hear it) while at idle with a cd, it doesn't affect operation of the unit (yet) all I do to stop it is eject the cd and re-insert it.

Other Thoughts: New Egg Rulls!! Fastest shipping, excellent prices!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Burner - Solid Price

Pros: Burns everything, reads everything, does it pretty dang fast too.
Have had no problems with this unit, despite the extremely low price. LITE-ON's reputation for dependability is well earned.

Cons: Can be loud at times, usually only during heavy read times (like installations). Nearly silent while burning. *shrugs*

Other Thoughts: Can't beat the price, not even with an ugly stick.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than Lightscribe models

Pros: Very compatible with different brands of media. I recently bought a couple of these with the Lightscribe feature and immediately noticed how picky they were about media that had always worked fine in the past. They even had trouble playing rental DVDs. So after a couple of months I bought this drive and it works great. I ordered a second one today for my other computer. Who needs Lightscribe anyway?

Cons: White costs more than black?

5 out of 5 eggsFast Drive

Pros: Good price, fast drive, and easy install.

Cons: Drive is pretty loud.

Other Thoughts: This drive is amazing for something in this price range. If you whine about noise you may want to look elsewhere, but the performance is very good.
