Pros: Cool look, Haven't fail, On par performace, Cheap.

Cons: Just trivial stuff... not worth mentioning.

I never knew this is a popular optical drive when I got them...

It was on sale for $15 per... so I got 2 of them in Fall 2010. rolleyes.gif

Oh well, the performance is generally satisfactory, with no fail disc burner that I recall, not much to complain about. tongue.gif

Great bargain buy! biggrin.gif

Pros: Price, CD/DVD read/write, low vibration,48x CD,24x DVD

Cons: Limited NERO software package

Sleek flat black faceplate design w/ badges looks good, functions all day every day for burning movies to DVD which i was why I purchased this. I use NERO to burn usually and have never had any issues with this drive. Quite, fast, inexpensive, low vibration technology.

Pros: Fast, looks nice, reliable

Cons: None

This is a great DVD drive/burner. I have 2 of these and they have yet to fail me. I have made dozens of DVDs and CDs and never had one come out bad.

The looks blend in well with my case and sits flush.

I recommend this burner to anyone who is looking for one.
