Summary: As many HP laptop owners noted in their reviews, the DVD drive in my HP laptop stopped reading disks after about 18 months of ownership (and I hardly ever transport this laptop). Sometimes it could read, sometimes not, and sometimes it could not even read the DVD it had just written to.
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.
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.
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.
