Get the bare drive instead. Don't waste money.

James Pendry, Amazon
18 July 2012
  • Summary: I brought this drive thinking Nero must be worth £10 extra, when I received the drive, the Nero was on a copied CD/RW. Don't waste your time with it.

Noisy but does the job.

Mr. Liam J. McArthur "Liam McArthur", Amazon
30 August 2011
  • Summary: It's not the best writer in the world but for the money its well worth it. It's quite noisy and my new build, home built gaming machine did bluescreen once when I was writing to a disk (but this could have been anything), but since then it's been absolutely fine. I think I would have rather paid a bit more money for a better drive but it's a cheap and cheerful writer and does what I need it to fine.

Pleased

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this unit as a replacement for my DVD writer which had decided to play up. It was very simple to replace and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the new unit worked at maybe twice the speed of the old one!

poorly packaged

Glyn, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: delivery was fairly quick, But the drive was Bear (poorly packaged), there was no box, no leads, no screws and no instructions, but was well wrapped by supplier. after purchasing screws and leads, the drive performed well. Not to bad for the price I suppose.

Samsung SH-S223C

Tonytone, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: Delivered by Amazon two full days before they said it would be (so hats off to Amazon for that) Come packaged in a small brown card container (just large enough for the dvd writer) on first look the packaging seems rather inadequate, although the writer was completely unmarked and undamaged once removed from the packaging.

Good drive

NSG "NSG", Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: The drive is unbranded and is recognised by Windows as TSST Corp - This appears to be a Samsumg Toshiba joint venture to provide optical drives. The drive installed easily and was immediately recognised by Windows XP SP3. It seems reliable and has C2 error checking built in. It sometimes takes a few seconds to start transferring data after a request but this may be the SATA channel on my motherboard.

Fair 'value' drive.

Mr. A. M. HOGG "MORS VINCIT OMNIA", Amazon
6 February 2011
  • Summary: No major problems with this drive, and it seems to handle all CD/DVD read or write operations I ask of it. It's not very fast, and sometimes spin-up is both noisy and slow, though that might be as much to do with how Windows uses it as the drive itself. For the money? Good value. If you can get the F model for the same price (this is the C), slightly better. Reminder: this handles all common formats up to, but *not* including Blu-ray.
