  • Cons: ...just broke a cd into 1000 tiny pieces...had it for about 5 months. It ruined the drive

Should have done more research

Justin W., Newegg
19 October 2012
  • Summary: Seems as though Plextor stopped manufacturing their own drives some years ago, and now simply re-badge Lite-On drives and some Pioneer drivers for their BR Burners. So this will most likely be the last Plextor optical drive I purchase as there's no sense paying a premium for simply slapping the...
  • Pros: Nothing wrong with the quality of the drive. Produces excellent burns on all the media I've thrown at it; Taiyo Yuden DVD+R/CD-R, Verbatim DVD+R DL (MKM-001), even acceptable burns on crummy Memorex DVD+R/DL.
  • Cons: I've been a loyal Plextor customer as I've always felt they produced some of the best optical drives around. However, given my previous experience with Plextor quality I didn't really bother to do alot of research on this drive. If I had, I would have purchased a Lite-On IHAS-524B as it's the exa...

The little drive that can

Darlene M., Newegg
14 September 2012
  • Summary: I now have five of these drives. I have replaced almost all of my DVD Burners with this model. All of them are quiet and reliable.
  • Pros: Works with any blank media that I have tried. Quiet operation. Seems to be dependable.
  • Cons: None yet. All of mine just work, and work well. For the guy who has had three fail, I feel your pain,....I had the same problems with LiteOn burners.

Another blinding blue LED

Richard P., Newegg
12 September 2012
  • Pros: Very quiet, tray load/unload is fast. Comes with a nice long SATA cable.
  • Cons: The blindingly bright blue activity LED is a little over the top, but a small piece of electrical tape will fix it.

Another Plextor Winner!

Allen S., Newegg
7 September 2012
  • Summary: I wish Plextor made more parts for my computer builds. I have become a major fan of their quality products.
  • Pros: Everything works as it is supposed to. This drive is much faster and quieter than my old generic DVD burner. The PlexUtilities (downloaded from the Plextor site) provide a powerful set of performance and diagnostic tools.
  • Cons: The price is a little more than other burners, but I won't let a few dollars keep me from buying the best product.

Nice and quiet

Wayne G., Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Pros: My first Plextor drive, I wanted to see if the hype was worth it. It is indeed a quality constructed drive and nice and quiet to boot. Time will tell if it can stand up to a 6 year old.
  • Cons: $20 more than similar drives. Not sure if that's worth a slightly quieter drive.

Plextor Drives

Johnny L., Newegg
18 July 2012
  • Summary: I have seen drives in new computers that only last a few years. My Plextor drive gets changed out into whatever build I am doing to upgrade. It just keeps on chugging along. A friend offered me $50 for it a couple of years ago and I turned her down.
  • Pros: I actually do not own one of these drives. But I DO own a Plextor CD-Writer that I have been using for almost 12 years now and it has never let me down. If this drive is made by the same company that made my CD-Writer, they won't sell to many of them because they never wear out. :) You pay more f...
  • Cons: Never wears out so I don't ever get the satisfaction of that new drive smell. :)

Very good drive

George C., Newegg
7 July 2012
  • Pros: This drive will record just about any brand of lightscribe disk that I throw in it. My previous Sony drive would only record plain dvd's and they had to be a name brand like Memorex. I've even scrounged some disks out of my trash that I thought the old drive had ruined and the Plextor was able to...
  • Cons: None so far. I realize that under $40 for a DVD burner is not asking much but hopefully it will last longer than the $20 Sony's.
