Summary: I use this drive on rare occasion. Honestly files are getting too big for DVDs and they'll soon be obsolete. I use this to burn boot disks for when one of my other computers fail. Maybe a music CD for my mother or aunt once in a while after they beg me for 5 weeks. I wouldn't recommend using this thing to burn a ton of discs at a time. Be sure to allow it to cool off or you'll burn it out. get two or three and cycle between them.
Summary: This device came loose in a box with NO packaging and worked only long enough for me to load windows on a computer I put together for my wife. The first time I used this device after the installation of the operating system it read disk but would not play then failed to even recognize disk. I am only giving a description of my experience with this device because i was petitioned via email to do so by seller or Amazon.
