2 out of 5 eggs 20% to 30% 09/19/2013

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48520

Pros: 70% to 80% Burn

Cons: 20% to 30% Don't burn

Other Thoughts: Tired of wasting time and money on discs that may or may not burn. I've had as many as 4 consecutive discs not burn. Why?

Pros: Got this for the wife and so far everything runs great. The Touch Screen is very responsive. The Wi-Fi works great it's never dropped a connection thus far. The screen is a true 1080P and movies look great. The sound is even good for built-in speakers

Cons: The HDD is all one partition although with Windows 7 I can create partitions myself. Not really a con but I like to keep my "C" Drive relatively small with mostly just the system files on it while I use a "D" or "E" Drive for all my programs and downloads on them.

Other Thoughts: Considering I bought this for the wife and her moderate use, surfing the web, playing games, etc. I think this system is great. The computer I'm using now I built myself. Which is what I am accustomed to but I would definitely considering getting one of these, although a upgraded system, for myself

Pros: At this time there is no pros to this drive. I'm on the third RMA

Cons: I've written one review already. Now I'm writing about the drive I was RMA'd. The second time. The first one failed within 30 days. The second within five months and this one within 45 days of recieving it. This is the 3rd one since November. Not sure what's happened to Plextor but their drives are not as good as they once were. I have always been a Plextor person but after this experience I have to switch drives. I had a similar problem with a 16X drive they made and hoped it was just isolated to that model but after this drive failed 3 different times, I have to say plextors quality has gone done. That's a shame too considering their drives are more expensive then most and they use to be the best.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from this drive. It has a serious fail rate
