Great Drive & S/W, Weak Drawer Motor, Bad Media Bundle
Pros: Great price, and the included software works well too.
Cons: The motor for the door seems/sounds weak, hope it lasts.
Overall Review: I got the bundle, with the Memorex 25gb (actuall they are rebranded Ritek BR2-000 disks) and though they say they are 4x they only burn at around 1.8 on average. So 25GB, plus verificaiton is about 2 hours. Note also that some sites list the Ritek as not acceptable, because they can lose their burn after a few months. Spend the $'s on good media.
Does what it advertises!
Pros: Easy to install, great software for transfer of the OS.
Overall Review: I an running XP, which may result in lower life, but really like how quite this is. Some complain it is small, but I don't store any files on my boot drive, so it is plenty big, I could have use a 32.
