Works as Advertised. Fast. Light-Scribe is great (if you can buy or find the discs that are compatible)! Good Value! SATA is a huge relief to my cabley mess.
None so far.
This drive was purchased to finally rid my computer of the IDE cable. Unfortunately my Sound Blaster Audigy ZX2 Platinum still has one to the front panel box. Oh well. At any rate, the cable mess is no more and my case is nice and tidy.

The DVD-Writer works as advertised, is a good price, and is quite quiet. No Complaints Samsung!

Experience: 4 Months
Good working drive
I have to complaints about this product. Works as soon as it is installed. Reads and writes cds and dvds fine. Great product, although I got mine a bit cheaper than the price it is at now.

Experience: 7 Days
SATA connectivity! Etches discs! Quiet operation.
None so far.
Samsung is on a roll these days, and this little unit has replaced LG as my optical drive of choice. As far as reliability goes, the jury is still out, but EVERY Samsung product I've used in the past two years has been rock solid.

Bon lightscribe à prix qui a bien de l'allure ($37) et acceptable au prix régulier de $45.
pas vraiment.
Bon lightscribe à prix qui a bien de l'allure ($37) et acceptable au prix régulier de $45. Rapide, silencieux il fait bien son travail. Bref ce garveur fait bien mon affaire.

Experience: 5 Months
lightscribe is slow and software not so great
all my gripes are with the lightscribe feature, the drive is great, very compatible, sounds looks and feels like a quality drive. Great for smaller cases, too.

replaced a pioneer DVR-110 with this one, this is better. Was trying to get where I could burn at 16x without any lame issues, this seems to have solved that problem.
Makes a little noise when it cooks up, but other than that it's great.
I think i will go with sata next time.Can't wait to burn some DVDs and video files with this hardware.

Got it on the weekly special for a great price
Quick and quiet

Didn't come with a free lifetime supply of blank media....
Seriously, this is a nice bargain priced drive. Quick, quiet and gets the job done. I've always used Lite-on but wanted to try something else and this one makes me happy.

SATA connector, Quiet, lightcribe compatible
Slower to load DVD than my old Pioneer
Very good drive for the price, even though it is slow to show the autoplay option after you insert a CD or DVD. It is taking longer than my old IDE Pioneer DVR-106 drive. This drive is quiet and short, so it is perfect for a small HTPC case.

SATA interface
Lightscribe compatible
Incompatibility with some media (reading)
Bought this when it was a Surprise Special. It was pretty cheap for a SATA+Lightscribe burner. It works fine as a burner with all the discs I've tried but it has trouble reading some of my older DVD+R discs.

Experience: 30 Days

SATA, Nero Essential included
no cable or SATA power adapter included
My first SATA burner, seems to work fine, burn a few DVD+R/-R (no DL yet) and so far so good. Bundled with Nero Essential.
