4 out of 5 eggsExcellent...for 6 months

Pros: Drive burned excellent for about 200 DVD's & 100 CD's. Taiyo Yuden media 16x burns full DVD's in about 6 minutes. Full CD's burned in approx 2-3 minutes.

Cons: After 6 mos and at least 300+ burns, the drive died on me. It still works but now burns at 4x speed. Though it served me well while it lasted, I don't plan on buying another.

5 out of 5 eggsDVD Burner is quite and works quickly....

Pros: This DVD burner is very quite and works quickly. it hasn't woke me up at 3:15am when burning movies unlike my dead memorex did.... its a good set price for the DVD burner and hardly ever fails me.

Cons: does not like my LG CD-RW-DVD combo drive and it (WILL) shut it down if ever it sees it on xp or in system BIOS. if you buy this, be cautious that this thing likes to be the only drive on your system other than floppy and HDD.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat to Awful

Pros: Worked wonderfully, burned quick, never had a coaster.

Cons: After six months it decided it would only read discs if they were in upon booting up windows. And this alone granted a one-time disc read. The only way I could get it to read a dsic after that was to disable then re-enable the drive completely.

Other Thoughts: I did flash the firmware and everything I could think of.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Newegg shipped it pretty fast :)

4 out of 5 eggsWorked good for 6 months

Pros: Worked great for six months, burned hundred dvds at least. I had no problems burning with it. I had it running on the ECS KA3 MVP (V1.0A) and ABIT AB9 Pro LGA 775 Intel P965 Express motherboards. No coasters, ran with Cheetah DVD burner great!

Cons: It failed after 6 months, the system began to not recognize the hardware and would lag the system if i tried to open "My Computer" or "Manage Drives".

Other Thoughts: After trying different PC, software, uninstall/reinstall drivers, disabling/enabling drive, checking cables, and different disks (among other things) I was only able to get it to "randomly" work, usually after a reboot, but would not recognize a few minutes later.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Six Monthes Later

Pros: Bought this Burner when i built my system back in Jan. and still couldnt be happier with it four 50 pack dvd spools later and two 100 pack cdr spools later it still burns like a champ and has made ZERO coasters! And the price was great when i bought it too, you cannot go wrong.

Cons: None in six monthes, maybe a little noisy when burning 16x dvds at 18x! but i dont think of it as a con. Spins up a little noisy though.

Other Thoughts: Its worth the little extra noise to have such a reliable burner, i myself dont think its noisier than any other burner i have had, price is good what else can you ask for?

3 out of 5 eggsWorked Good for 6 Months

Pros: Fast burns, worked with most media. Appeared to be an exceptional burner....but

Cons: Cache became erratic, then burns were real slow... RMA for H42 - hope for better luck. Firmware updates slow.

Other Thoughts: My Plextor 708A and Pioneer 107D still work after many hours of use.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST and Reliable Burns

Pros: Very Fast. I always get 16X burns with TY or Verbatim blanks. Even cheap ODepot blanks burn at maximum speed, 100%. Burned many disks in the five months I've owned this. No coasters! Very quiet.

Cons: Has Logo info all over the front in white. Not the cleanest looking in a "no-door" case. Minor.

Other Thoughts: My Plex 708 used to make coasters about 1 out 10 dvd burns, even with latest firmware. This LG burns at MAX speed all the time. Perfect. No drivers required. Using Nero 7.0.

2 out of 5 eggsNot all it's Cracked up to be.

Pros: Nice looking; quiet; Does a little of everything.

Cons: Each time I used it to burn media, it got slower and slower. I finally returned it and purchased a Samsung, which is working really well.

Other Thoughts: I might have gotten a bad burner.
