  • Pros: It's a DVD Burner with Lightscribe... Not much else to say about it except that the quality seems to be much higher than the ones I've had in the past. I've written hundreds of DVDs and CDs, with and without the Lightscribe, with this burner and it's still running strong. In the past I've had oth...

6 Month review

Kenneth B., Newegg
11 June 2012
  • Summary: The drive still works, but it's annoying. Optical drives are cheap, so I'm probably just going to ditch this one and get something else.
  • Pros: Lightscribe. Comes with a SATA cable. Still works after 6 months.
  • Cons: After about 5 months, the drive turned pretty noisy while spinning a disk. It was a constant vibration sound. Easily became the loudest part of my rig and was quite annoying. Also, once in awhile, it sounds like the disc "skips" or "misses" during spin up. Like the drive is trying to spin up the ...

IT READS DISKS IN CAPS LOCK

Chessie T., Newegg
26 May 2012
  • Summary: Luckily, I don't use it much, it was mainly for installing software, and most of my games are played through Steam and I don't need a disk. It does the job and that's what counts.
  • Pros: It works, haven't had any problem with it.
  • Cons: It's loud. My computer isn't exactly silent, but put a disk in this puppy and it goes into what I like to call "dump-truck-backing-up-at-a-nuclear-power-plant-with-a-tornado-warning-siren-blaring-in-front-of-a-turbo-jet-in-a-windtunnel" mode. It probably wouldn't be so bad if you have a computer ...

Questionable quality

jeremy t., Newegg
12 February 2012
  • Summary: What a pain. It was fine, then it was not. Nothing I do fixes the issue. It just plain won't read discs of any kind, blank OR commercially produced. Like it's not even hooked up. I can hear it attempting to spool, but that's as far as it gets.
  • Pros: Cheap, fast, initially recognized everything, LightScribe
  • Cons: Stopped recognizing ANY media after 5-6 weeks. Paperweight now.
