Summary: received mine yesturday and it reads dvd+r perfectly fine......dont know if samsung changed something to make this drive +r compatible but i just read a freshly burnt taiyo yuden 8x +r disk....the reason for the 4 stars is that its slow...my lite on 166s rips much faster
Summary: Have had the drive for about 6-7 months, no problems, only complaint I have is that it could read cd's a little faster (reason for 4 stars), but other than that it is great, no pops or pauses when playing a multi layer DVD which is usually evident on many other drives.
Summary: It has been 3 months and so far no problems. The only negitive thing I can think of it that it could be faster. Other then that, I find it very reliable and easy to work with. I highly recommend
Summary: this is a VERY QUIETLY RUNNING PIECE of quiptment, i was impressed. I am dissapointed at its install reading, skips some random critical file you know -_-, but I have other drives that do that IF neccessary. THIS IS A GREAT DVD Reader. The software that comes with it is great.
Summary: This drive is excellent for a home PVR box, which is exactly why I got it. It's short enough to fit into the Athentec A100BB case and still have the processor heatsink exposed. It's also nearly silent on DVD playback.
Summary: It's ok. Not blown-away-impressed by it. Doesn't seem much faster than my previous DVD-ROM drive - Pioneer 104S 10X slot drive. Decided to buy this Samsung drive after my Pioneer bit the dust after 3 years. The newer Pioneer 16X drive hasn't been getting good reviews, so I settled on this drive.
Summary: Actually I didn't buy it from newegg. I got it from Dell to replace SD-612 (the worse DVD on Earth, stopped reading DVDs :( ). I have it for two days and I have no problems w/ it, yet. If U want good DVD-ROM go for Pioneer (slot) or Toshiba.
Summary: Quittons les vieux lecteurs de cd tout simple et passons au dvd. C'est ce que ce lectuer permet. Facile a installer, windows s occupe de toute la configuration. Il lit aussi bien les CD, avec une vitesse de 48x , que les dvd.
Excerpt: Da ich schon seit längerer Zeit einen Samsung CD-Brenner in meinem Rechner habe, entschied ich mich vor 3 Monaten der Optik wegen auch für das Samsung DVD Laufwerk. Ich bestellte es für 49Euro bei Alternate.
Pros: Leises Laufwerk, gehört zu den günstigeren . . .
