Eh

Pros: It's black. It's fast.

Cons: Will not read discs unless they are in perfect condition. Slightest scratch on CD causes a read error.

Quality of burned media is very low. Lots of corrupt burned discs.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.

good while it lasted

Pros: About the same noise level and tray open speed as my other drives. Great access and burning speeds. Never had any coasters. Great looking drive too.

Cons: Only burned about 20 DVD's and 30 CD's before it stopped working. Lasted 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Seemed like a really great drive at first. Good specs and really fast. I like having Asus since it matches many of my other components. After about 6 months though it stopped working. Drive went dead in the middle of burning a CD. Had to power down and reboot to get it to turn back on. Doesn't recognize any media you put in it now. This is the second CD/DVD burner and second brand I've had fail on me. I know drives are cheap now, but why can't someone build a drive that's a little more expensive but lasts?

5/ 5

Pros: Really Nice Drive, RAM Compatible

Cons: I have an older "Nearly Equal Competition" drive that's about the same price but faster, only doesn't have RAM.

Other Thoughts: Bought this drive so I could read RAM disks from my new DVD Camcorder, Does everything I want it to.

Good drive for the price

Pros: Multiple formats, very good price. Have only had one failed burn so far and I think that may have been a problem with the media, not the drive. Of course Newegg shipped faster than they promised too!

Cons: Even after I upgraded the firmware, I'm still limited to 32X writing on CD-Rs. 40X isn't even an option in Nero. Also drive is a little loud when it first spins up a disc or when it is writing. Neither are a huge problem but if you are looking to burn massive quantities of CDs then you might want to find a drive that has faster recording speeds.

Other Thoughts: All in all a solid drive for the price. If you are looking for an affordable multi-format drive, this is a great choice.
