Samsung - Poor Customer Service - These drives are Bad New in Box

Summary: This is the second SE-208 Drive I have ordered ... one back in 2012 and this one around October 2013. Both units are bad and cannot read CDs or DVDs. This 2012 was sitting in the box for a year ... wouldn't work at all.
Summary: I just burned 4 CDs with this burner. Two of them are burned using iTunes 11.0.5 in Mac OS 10.8.2 on Macbook Pro. The other two is burned using Windows Media Player in Windows 7. It's stable and quiet. Hope this review can be of help!
The device is excellent--the software is bewildering!

Summary: I am a long-time fan of Samsung--I own several Samsung products. This would have been another one, except for the fact that the software that's supposed to "run" it is so awkward and complicated to use that I finally gave up and returned the item.
Summary: From my experience, when i first used this drive the tray would not coming out when you press the button. Tried this when plugged into the computer about 20 times. .. It makes a spinning noise and then doesn't do anything.
Not happy with it. I had 2 both broke after a few use
