Pros: Looks cool, nice shiny disc tray front, lots of capabilities (like lightscribe and dual layer writing).
Cons: After about a year, it started writing dvds that would skip in all of my dvd players. I first thought it was just a bad copy, but I decided to write the same dvd with this drive and my other asus burner and the asus-burned disc was just fine. It never gave any errors, just wrote dvds that sucked.
Also about a month before this, the disc tray wouldn't open the first time I hit the button, like it was getting jammed. But I could press the open button again and it would open right up. And I never closed it just by shoving it in, I always used the button or eject function in programs.
Other Thoughts: Still works just fine as a cd/dvd reader, but I won't be buying Plextor anymore. My Asus driver is over 2 years old and still works.
