Pros

fast,quiet and reliable
Cons
not dual layer or dual format
Summary
i am happy enough with this unit .it is reliable and right now really cheap i paid a lot less for it.the one thing i wish it had is dual format .i did not look too closely when i bought it and i bought a bunch of -dvd's which of course dont work.as with most HP things it has worked flawlessly for 7 months ,its not the fastest out there.i would recomend this unit only because of the reliability.

Pros

Very good burner. have never had problems with it.
Cons
Its not dual format.
DVD+Rs are usually more expensive
Summary
I have had this drive for quite a while, and have never had problems with it. I don't even think that I have burned a coaster yet. I am not sure how good this drive is for writing in 4x mode (never tried it). I would recommend that you get a DVD writer that writes both + and - though. The DVD-Rs are usually cheaper than buying DVD+rs. I think that I read somewhere that DVD-Rs even have a bit higher capability rate than the +Rs.

Pros

Fast. Reliable. Works. Decent burning software. Good quick start guide. Unlike CD burners, this can actually run Rainbow Six Raven Shield. (more on that below)
Cons
Ugly faceplate. Grey. Doesn't use DVD-R or DVD-RW or DVD-RAM formats (if you even need DVD-RAM)
Summary
I actually found this burner to be very good, and considering I only paid $169+t at the time I think it was a pretty decent deal. The only real drawbacks are that it isn't a multi-format DVD burner, in that you are limited to only the +R and +RW discs. It doesn't really matter, they're relatively the same as the -R and -RW format so you're not losing any there. However if DVD-RAM is important to you you'll need a DVD-RAM drive.

The software that comes with it is nice for what it does, drive letter access (DLA) isn't as buggy as HP's previous drives. However if you're going to be burning copyrighted material you'll need to find other software as what comes with this doesn't work for that purpose.

Also, in case your computer doesn't have a conventional CD-ROM drive anymore and you want to play Raven Shield this drive will play it. Raven Shield (at least as of today still) has a problem with running in a CD burning drive, which is stupid since most people got rid of their old CD drives long ago. Anyway thats more of a Raven Shield issue than it is a DVD burning issue so don't make it have too much weight on your decision.

Great drive!

Pros

Good & fast! Decent price!
Cons
Generates a bit of heat when in operation. Not a big deal though.
Summary
Let me brief: Burns dvd's really fast! Quiet! Reliable! Quality!

AWSOME dvd writer!! Real nice to have compared to standard cd writers.

but the only downfall with dvd-r is $$$, really expensive.
