Summary: I wanted a LightScribe drive in my Dell 7010, small form factor system and Dell did not have any available. This drive was an excellent replacement for the DVD-RW drive that I had received with my Dell, but has the LightScribe features that I desired. The drive works fine both for reading/writing and labeling.
Summary: I installed the drive about 4 days ago and am very impressed with the performance so far. The installation only took about 3 minutes and that included re-using my existing face plate which fit better with my laptop than the face plate provided. Note: this was my first time replacing a laptop drive and it was truly plug-and-play. So far, I have burned about 15 movies with this drive.
Summary: I bought this dvd/cd burner not knowing if it truely was lightscribe compatable because I was told if it didn't have the light scribe logo on the burner it wasn't lightscribe compatable. I was confused because of the name of the product but it had no logo. So I called HP which was no help all they could do was tell me it would fit in my Compaq Presario CQ57 even though it says CQ50 and CQ70. It is compatable..
Summary: I do not know how I got it at such a deal, but it is an authentic HP DVD Burner replacement for my G62-225nr Laptop. It did not initially fit my laptop, but I CAREFULLY Remove the faceplate from your original DVD Burner and replace it to the new I received. NOw, I can watch my movies and burn my DVD's in the comfort of my living room, game room, bathroom and even closet.
