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!
Summary: I had this product for around a month. I use it to burn back ups and data DVD of my anime. I've burned 50 DVDs so far and they came out perfectly. It is very easy to use, once you plug in this DVD writer your computer will automatically install the drivers needed to run it.
Summary: First, The Problem: My Mac Mini '07 came with a crap internal DVD burner. It was LOUD; it ate disks; it scratched the disks it didn't eat; and worst of all, it would pretend disks had burned properly when they hadn't!
Summary: I'm using a low-end HP mini laptop (netbook) as a desktop computer by cabling a big monitor, keyboard, and mouse to it. (There are some limitations, such as it only runs the partial version of Windows 7, but it works well for most things, even streaming video, etc.
Summary: Does exactly what I needed. Burns efficiently without being too loud. It's sleek and small and all around a good deal for what I paid for it. Way easier to burn a bunch of DVDs than to lose all my stuff on external hard drives.
Summary: Works great for the Macbook Air, despite the included software being meant for Windows--you don't need that software. Just plug it in (and you only need 1 USB port, not 2) and it works. Very cheap and small too.
Summary: Macs are obviously not made to last! My optical drive broke down twice, the second time jamming a disc and damaging the mechanism. This is after replacing the hard drive and then the microphone stopped working as well & I got a Logitech to replace that. So, no more big bucks to the greedy Steves!
Summary: I have used this to boot several PCs with Windows installer DVDs and Linux installer and live CDs and DVDs and have had no issues. It's fast and quiet and while I cannot say I have really testing the burning features greatly, what I have burned had no issues. It is a great buy.
