Experience: 6 Months
Does what it is meant for
None so far
Used it for 6 months and I had no problem so far.

Works perfectly, never burned a coaster with it.
Does not come with software
This is a perfectly decent burner. I have not had any coasters with it. Both burning and reading are very and error-free. I've used it with Verbatim, TDK, Maxell and Fuji media without any issues whatsoever.

Being an OEM package, it does not include software. Not a huge problem as ImgBurn and CDBurnerXP are free and excellent. You can get basic Lightscribe labeling software from, but I find it awkward to use. I highly recommend buying the Nero software, which does a much better job of labeling in my opinion, and will work fine with this burner (or any other).

Fast & quiet
Does what it says and does it quickly without making much noise. You can't ask for more than that.

Bought it for a new build and would buy it again.

None that I can think of. Just a simple dvd writer
The one I got was DOA; not only that, but it wrecked the windows OEM disk I put in.
Cons as described. Having said that about this product, I've used lots of samsung drives before, and they were fine. NCIX was AWESOME at replacing this item for me. Giving it satisfactory, because if my particular unit wasn't faulty, I'm sure it would be a perfectly good drive. But my unit wasn't, thus the lower score.

Nice front bezel
Fairly quiet
Bought for $18.99. Bought to replace Samsung SH-203N which was dying. Using it on Windows 7 64 bit came with FW SB00 worked no issue and upgrade to SB01 also no issue.

Good speed, quiet, reliable burns
Drive has a smaller footprint than other drives. This makes it fit better in smaller cases. In system where the power supply is top mounted, having an extra half-inch or so shorter can make a big difference if clearance. The only issue is that when the tray is ejected, the disc is not fully exposed and a portion remains inside. For most people this should not be a problem except for those who are extremely very picky. The drive LED is very small and unobtrusive. The light actually shines through a small pin-sized apperture no bigger than the manual cd eject hole. Burned close to 100 standard DVDs (various brands) and a dozen lightscribe discs without any coasters. Since this is an OEM drive - there's no software included so either download some freeware or purchase burning software. I'm using Nero 10 and Surething CD labeller deluxe lightscribe edition 5. If your drive is not recognized by your system, try downloading the lighscribe system software patch (LSS) from The latest version seems to recognize this drive without any problems.

No 'coasters' so far
Sufficient for what I use it for
I like Samsung writers because I find them to be much quieter than LG. Haven't tested the write quality but so far, no coasters. I only use this for reading discs and occasionally writing an audio CD for the car. For the price, I can't complain.

Experience: 21 Days

Relatively quiet
None really
Just your basic DVD Writer. Got it for $18.99 Not very loud even at full speed.

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
Cost Effective.
I couldn't find any.
If you really need a CD-Rom Drive for your build, this one fits the bill.

For me CD-ROM and CD-RW drives have become out-dated, but I put in my build just in case, especially if you do not have another computer with a CD-ROM drive.

Nowadays I install the network drivers via a Flash Drive if required.

The rest of the drivers can be downloaded from the Internet.

But if you are the person who rents DVDs to watch on your computer, this one is a good choice.
