Summary: I have been using it to read and digitalize a lot of CD's, and it seems to be fast and accurate, quite unlike the one had I just purchased and returned. I'm quite satisfied, although I can't speak to how long it will last since I have had it only a short while.
Summary: So far it has been a good DVD drive with no problems. Easy installation in a HP Pavillion desktop. Time will tell how reliable this drive is. Cost was slightly more than your standard DVD drives.
Summary: Pros: Easy install, detected immediately in my Windows 7 64 bit system, fast speeds. Cons: Very first disc I tried to burn failed, haven't had any since; either CD or DVD. Software that comes with it is useless.

Summary: In a market that has almost disappeared, this Plextor model does justice to their long held reputation as the gold standard of optical disk burners. I use this model externally and the case to hold it cost more than the drive.
