Pros: Smart styling, all aluminum casing (except for port plate in rear), and multiple ports.
Cons: Unit runs hot and does not have a fan. The unit I purchased lasted two days before my system stop recognizing the drive. Put drive in a competitor enclosure and it's still working great to this day. Waiting for Newegg to send my replacement. I hope I have better luck the second time around.
Overall Review: Include a fan, even a low noise, low output fan would help.
Pros: Compatible with a wide range of DVD/CD blanks. Recognized by Nero, Roxio, Cheetah Fastburn, etc.
Cons: Very noisy. Previous reviewer had it right. Great price and compatibility but the loudest drive I've every owned.
Pros: Works great in my PSP (Phat). Very fast file transfers from PC.
Pros: Easy setup (plug and surf). Works flawlessly in my Linksys powered network.
