solid device

  • Summary: Solid drive but not as quiet as I hoped, especially considering its new whiny attitude
  • Pros: Quick, has lightscribe which is cool if you want to pay extra for the lightscribe discs
  • Cons: has recently started to whine a little bit, really high pitched

Forget Lightscribe..............LOAD

Barbara N., Newegg
16 December 2008
  • Summary: Does anyone use this junk?
  • Pros: Cheap, burns OK
  • Cons: Any drive with Lightscribe takes FOREVER to load a disc. Side by side drives and you'll see what I'm talking about. Happens with every Lightscribe drive I've owned. ESPECIALLY painful booting to DOS

A Great Drive at a Great Price

Harrison T., Newegg
16 December 2008
  • Summary: These drives are great. The company I work uses these in all of their builds, and I have never seen any of them come back. When I saw it on here, especially with LightScribe, I couldn't believe it. I highly recommend this drive. Don't wait... BUY IT!
  • Pros: PRICE! The tray doesn't catch on my Antec P160 case bay covers!
  • Cons: None

Godd drive for the Price

Nichole m., Newegg
15 December 2008
  • Summary: This drive is very short, when mounted in my external enclosure the power is very hard to hook up when the drive is mounted far enough forward so the front fits nice.
  • Pros: Price is good, drive is very quite and fast.
  • Cons: I bought two of these drives, one of them Burns lightscribe,dvd-r,cd-r's just fine while the other one has had a few bad cd-r disks(2 out of 5) while using Verbatim Lightscribe Cd-r's. The drive I have had the issues with is in an external enclosure so maybe that has something to do with it.

User Review

Louis T., Newegg

  • Summary: OEM = nothing but the drive. No screws, no IDE ribbon, not even a decorative box. All you get is the drive wrapped up in bubble wrap and a CD with Nero 7 and some driver upgrade program.
  • Pros: Did the basics without any errors. Also came with a copy of Nero 7 Essentials.
  • Cons: Buzzing laser-sounding noise when the drive read or writes double-layer discs.
