  • Summary: Too bad they don't allow negative egg ratings. Did I mention, this thing stinks! But Newegg is Great!!!
  • Pros: The light scribe may work. Don't know. Couldn't get it to read any DVD I put in it, so I didn't try to write anything with it and didn't need to make any labels. It might even write DVD's but you won't know because it won't read DVD's.
  • Cons: This thing stinks (I bought 2, neither one will read any DVD I tried in either computer I put them in). Won't read a DVD.

it burns!

Daniel S., Newegg
4 December 2010
  • Summary: Didn't realize it was IDE, but that's just me not paying attention. No idea if the bundled software is any good because I normally don't bother with it (which says something in itself, I think).
  • Pros: reads and writes CDs and DVDs with no problems.
  • Cons: reading data from a DVD is sloooooooow. Used it to install windows 7 and took considerably longer than a SATA drive.
