Based on all the DVD writers I've had the pleasure of looking at,
I can honestly say that those drives from BenQ are indeed the most impressive in terms of overall performance. No other drive has impressed me more, and this is why I was eagerly awaiting their next release.

Excellent DVD burner. Considered to be the most compatible burner out there. This drive can burn most media in a way that it is compatible with most DVD burners (my old lite-on burner had alot of compatibility issues when burning different types of DVDs). If you want the most compatible burner out there then I hightly recommend this drive.
I've had this DVD-RW for well over a year now, done at least 150 writes/re-writes and everything is good. I picked it up because it was "recommended' by half the internet in google search engines. It also has a well competitive price.
Great burner, fairly easy to install. First ever DVD burner for me, and first order from NCIX. Great price, altough it got even lower after I bought it. Wish it came with screws, but still a good buy. Get the retail version now.
This is my favourite of my 6 DVD burners. It beats the LG 4160 in burn quality, and can copy things that my other BenQ DW1620s can't read. The burn quality is amazing at 8 or 12x, I haven't used it at 16x yet.
Ripping is accomplished at max possible speed, at 8x or higher if the DVD is new and of good quality; many DVDs aren't very good to begin with, and therefore can rip at 4 or 6x instead. There appears not to be a riplock from the factory.
Simply put, this is just a rebadged Plextor at half the price, which makes it damn good value. One of the best, if not the best, dvd writers avalible on the market today. The only problem I have with this is that it's kinda loud, although quieter than some others I've had in the past.
Overall this DVD writer is top-notch. I have burned all kinds of media with this thing, including DVD-Rs from Fujifilm, Maxell, and Sony; DVD-RWs from Fujifilm; and CD-R/RWs from Sony, Memorex and HP. The record times are quick enough for me, and the drive is very quiet, far quieter than my LG DVD-ROM. I honestly can't think of any downsides to this DVD-RW. I would highly recommend it.
