Thumbs up

Ryan G., Newegg
11 November 2008
  • Pros: Plugs right in. Comes with Nero software. Fairly Priced
  • Cons: Seems somewhat larger than I expected. It's also louder than I expected it to be, but I'm not burning 24/7 so its not a big deal.

Hardware is great, Software is terrible

Lincoln P., Newegg
10 October 2008
  • Summary: Thumbs up, great value, does what I have needed it to do.
  • Pros: The drive works very well. I have burned multiple DVDs with it, and all have worked perfectly. It is also very quiet and of reasonable size, especially for the price.
  • Cons: The software included with it has few options and does not work properly. The menu templates are barely customizable, and there is no ability to create your own. If you're planning to do anything more than burning two or three video clips per CD, you should probably get additional software.

Good Product but...

Richard A., Newegg
8 October 2008
  • Pros: As a CD snd DVd reader it works great. I am very low tech and the install was a breeze
  • Cons: When I have tried using Tru Direct for DVD burning off my camcorder I have the audio and video are out of sync on the burnt DVD. This is a concern that may result in my returning. I don't know if others have had this issue or if I just have a device defect.

Works on Intel Macbook

  • Summary: Works on a Mac except the included software.
  • Pros: I use this drive to boot from the Mac OS X DVD after the internal optical drive failed. iTunes had no problems buring a playlist from this drive. It's really fast. The software that comes with this drive is Windows only.
  • Cons: The drive is really big. The included USB cable is shorter compared to the USB cable that came with my printer and external harddrive case.
