NEC3550A Excels

Pros: Has made multiple CD R and RW, and DVD R and R/W disks...error-free. Most at 8X. Was even able to write error-free to CD-R media that 5 other drives had failed to use 100%. Using default firmware (1.31)

Cons: I prefer a media writer that shows a Green LED for reading and Yellow LED for writing. 3550A uses Green LED more commonly used for both modes.

Other Thoughts: No audible acoustic resonance heard from R/W head positioning subsystem... Resonance is often a problem with optical drives.

Drive was salvaged from a high-usage system before I started using it.

Piece of trash

Pros: Reads pre-manufactured CDs and DVDs just fine. Also makes fantastic coasters every time.

Cons: Makes coasters out of my CDs and DVDs, regardless of the brand of media I choose. The firmware is up to date, I've tried different software, but every DVD is a coaster.

Other Thoughts: Makes a great gift for those who want authentic DVDs-turned-coasters.

Cheap, dependable? Win!

Pros: I've had one of these in the system I built in the middle of last year, and it has performed quite well.

These things will even stand up to being jostled a bit, and even thrown against a house, if still in the original container. (see below)

I'm not suprised they are out of stock now.

Cons: Box was dented from UPS's.... interesting delivery method.

Other Thoughts: Handles disc protection schemes that one time you have to put up with them.
