Pros: FAST......Cheap!

Cons: Cheap!

Sounds like it a grenade is going off when you eject the tray, unless you have a disc inside. Questionable quality on DL media. This is the first drive that my Pioneer Elite DVD player has trouble reading the discs-many freeze right at the layer change.

Other Thoughts: If anyone knows of a better quality drive that is as fast as this one, I'll buy it today

Pros: Fast DVD+R, DVD-R and CDR writing speeds. NO coasters when writing to Verbatim DVD+R media.

Cons: OCCASIONALY wont read a disc that I just burned without a computer re-start.

Other Thoughts: Many people bash a product because of their own lack of knowledge. Many of the "cons" mentioned are simply not related to the product reviewed. I have burned over 800 DVD movies with this drive, and have yet to produce a coaster. I have owned several Sony drives(DRU-710, 720,810,830) and have never had a failure. I have burned hundreds of CD's and THOUSANDS of DVD's with these drives and never had a drive failure. People complaining about coasters should be spending more for quality media. People mentioning multiple drive failures should probably not be building their own system. Either that, ir their luck is so bad that they should NEVER go outside in a thunder storm..........
