Sweet drive

Pros: Media scans of the verbatim discs I have reveal that I can burn at 16 speed without any or very few errors. My older lite on can only burn discs at 12 speed without read errors. A more perfect disc results in fewer attempts to read bad block so data or areas where the die hasn't been written to properly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Buy it. Try it. It is only 30 dollars.

Disapointing burn speeds

Pros: It works just fine

Cons: It will only burn a good number of brands of 16x media at 12x (as of FW 1.22). See the media guide at Pioneer's site.

Speed Bump

Pros: Thought this would be a lot faster than my IDE writer, but there's really no noticeable difference. Otherwise, it's a good, quiet, dependable drive that hasn't made a coaster yet.

Cons: It's OEM, so make sure you've got the necessary cables.

Other Thoughts: I'm running it on an older MSI 848P Neo-V mobo, so that may be the speed problem. It does get rid of the ribbon cable, making your case easier to clean. All in all, I'm happy with it.

good drive

Pros: Drive works great, burn DVDs fast. Tested fine in Ubuntu 7.10 and Windows XP.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've always had good luck with pioneer drives, I'm glad they offer a beige version to go with my oldschool beige computer case. Previous reviewer discouraged me saying doesn't work in Linux, but working perfectly in Ubuntu 7.10 with zero configuration.
