Waste of Money!

John L., Newegg
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Worked at first, but then (after a few months), totally hosed up with Win 7 Pro(64), in my case. After that, never could get it to look like anything but a generic CD-ROM. Driver issues? Who knows?
  • Pros: Looks good. Promo from the company, from my experience, is empty hype.
  • Cons: Support at the company's website is virtually non-existent.

  • Pros: Good for making coasters.
  • Cons: Many burn fails, lightscribe function never worked, Extended Replacement Warranty is a joke, as they will not replace it and return less money than it cost to get,

  • Pros: Easy to setup. Worked well for the first 6 or 7 uses (over the course of 6 months)
  • Cons: Writing data to the disc causes it to just go to sleep. I've tried multiple recording software, and multiple brands of media. In the end it will pick a random spot during the recording process and just quit. The lights continue to flash, but nothing happens.

Maybe It's Just Me!

Willapa H., Newegg

  • Summary: My Phillips dvd burner has worked great for several years now. Shoulda just bought another one!
  • Pros: Very nice looking unit.
  • Cons: Is not recognized by an older XP Pro machine or my new Win 7 Pro machine.

That's exactly what I'm going to do. I don't h...
