Experience: 1 Months


For the moment i like this product and ive been using it for 1month no problem
This item is really good good quality good price worth it

Experience: 0 Days


Transfer rate is quick.
Does not support bluray.
For this price on the market, Samsung offers a good deal. DVD+RW, 18x18x6, what can I add more? Maybe tell me after you've tried it!

Experience: 7 Days


no lightscribe, but who cares?
SATA can be a pos or neg, depending on your MB. If you want this to be your only optical drive, just have a backup ready for when you need to boot of discs and have compatibility.
Having said that, my ASROCK dual sata2 board had not troubles.
Really plain front with recessed light, great for if you're painting it to match your case.

Pioneers can be pieces of crap too and even my plextor 4x burner died suddenly (8yrs ago)

Experience: 2 Months


Fast Read & Write speeds
Free sotware
None yet
This is a good DVD Writer for the price. I heard alot of complaints about this not being that good, but I haven't had any issues yet. It's fast at reading DVDs and CDs, and I don't do much burning so this writer was good enough for me. The free software even works with Vista I find. Sata allows better cable management in the case, which is good for better air flow. This is a good writer and I recommend it.

Experience: 1 Months


I had no problem with this dvd rw yet. It CAN read cd very well. The price is really good, I think that we can't go wrong with Samsung!

Experience: 3 Weeks


quick, great burn quality/consistency, comes with good basic software, sata (new mobos are short on ide space), small (stubby) and good for saving space in case
does not work (yet) with ashampoo burning studio
great little (litteraly, very small - ~2" shorter than my old pioneer ide) burner. ideal for saving space in a case.
software (nero express) works great out of the box for burning data/doing backups to dvd or cd.
burned taiyo 8x dvd-r at 18x no problem several times... nice.
on the downside (if you're an ashampoo user), it doesn't work yet with ashampoo burning studio - appearantly they're working on it though.

Experience: 80 Days


comes with all necessary software
I like best that this unit comes with NERO which makes it easy to start burning stuff right away. Other games and stuff are also a nice touch.

Good packaging, low noise unit, works well.

Experience: 30 Days


can't comment on burn quality yet as i use it mostly for reading discs, etc instead of backing up. I find this drive louder than previous drives i've used from LG and BENQ, but for the price who can complain. Also it uses a SATA interface, no more big chunky IDE cables to mess with!

Experience: 10 Days


SATA connectivity.Drive burns accurately.
Louder than most other DVD writers,but overall the noise level is tolerable.
I bought this DVD writer to replace an expensive Plextor SATA drive and it works well.It burns good data DVD's and reads fast.This drive burns louder than most other writers,but the noise level is tolerable.This is a satisfactory DVD writer,but the Plextor PX-755SA is far better choice if you can afford it.

Experience: 15 Days


- Cheap
- Sata
- Bundle
- Not the fastes-
- No lightscribe
- Black front panel only (no optional gray)
Overall, this is a worthy replacement from my previous IDE drive. This should do the job perfectly until I get a HD DVD drive. My unit does not make noise and I like the door mechanism. The SATA connector is much smaller than the IDE one and this helps cooling my system. Thumbs up!
