This one is my own fault really: so I will write a review in hopes of helping other avoid my fail.


(I, of course, had no chance to actually test it out so my score of 4 may be disregarded.)

IDE, Burns DVDs, no coasters yet.
Bland faceplate, no Lightscribe
I got this drive (on sale) to replace a worn-out DVD burner in my old XP machine. This drive is as reliable as I'd expect it to be, I haven't burned any coasters in it after over 100 discs. It reads all DVDs I've put in it without a problem. The only downside is that it doesn't support Lightscribe, but I've got other drives for that.

Price, Quiet
Bought to replace parents burnt out drive. Works well, though the design is a bit fugly. Wish it was a gloss, but it works, it's IDE and not too loud. I would recco. Beward OEM people, buy your IDE Cables from NCIX

Experience: 60 Days
 Verified Owner
Easy to install
A bit noisy, but not that bad
For the price I picked these up for I can't complain, works well and friends are happy with new one.

No Drama, sale price.
Bought this to replace a failed unit, reads and burns, does what its supposed to.

Experience: 10 Days
 Verified Owner
Fast, reliable.
No complaints on this DVD Drive, as soon as it's an IDE drive and that the price didn't get higher than SATA drive, it could be buyed as a good replacement if your old IDE drive stopped working ! Of course since it's OEM there is no software coming with it.

Price is good, reads fast
None I can think of
Bought this a few months ago and it has been a great addition to my desktop. Reads a lot faster than both my retired Lite-On DVD-ROM and NEC-3500 which I replaced with this unit. I only burn at 8x so I can't comment on it's performance burning at any faster than that but at 8x it's rock solid.

Performs as expected
Fairly well priced
None that I can think of
I got this IDE model instead of SATA because I wanted to reserve SATA for my hard drives. The drive works really well and it is quiet when reading/burning dvds.

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
-Opened up a SATA port
-IDE is a dying interface
-DVD is a dying format
-Realized only later that i didn't even want a dvd drive mucking-up the look of my case.
Its a DVD drive, its fast, its pretty quiet, its a name you know, it uses IDE and the price is right. Should last as long as DVDs are still around... or until they become commonly mistaken by the youth as something you "catch" if your not careful.

Experience: 2 Months
 Verified Owner
Black, cheap, fast, does what I need it to.
None, unless you don't want IDE
I bought this drive just so that I could read and write DVD's for a while. It works so I have no complaints about this drive. If you need it for basics, I would recommend it.
