Summary: I'm not happy with this drive, as it's not very fast accessing discs, and also makes this high-pichted noise that's killing my ears... Tried to find a driver update (maybe that would take care of the whining), but there's none available.
Summary: It's exactly what I need, and a sweet deal! I wasn't looking for the absolute cutting-edge and wanted to spend less than $xx. I put it in my Mac (G4 Quicksilver), fired it up, set the region code and I'm off and running. Have watched and read successfully and with really nice speeds. Buy it.
Summary: Had mine for 2 months now. Works 100%. I have two other Samsung DVD ROM/Burners and they have never had a problem. Use with Nero 6 updated (does +/- R DL) and you won't have any problems. But then I am using the more expensive Verbatim discs!! Got it 2 days of course, thanks to Newegg/FedEx combo!!
Summary: I bought this three months ago and have had no problems with the hardware or the software shipped with this burner. Easy install too. This is the fourth Samsung product I have bought in the past year and I have been impressed by everyone of them- top notch manufacturer!
Summary: This is my first DVD burner, so i was a bit anxious when i got it. i didn't get it off Newegg, i bought it from my local Anyway, after installing the drive, and installing the things from the CD, i tried to burn a DVD. It said it need a vob file or some other type of file.
Summary: This Samsung 16X DL drive was an excellent buy from Newegg. Combo deals and rebats being a faily recent add in here does allow for some good buying options if one has the patience for rebates and perservance to find the good deals.
Summary: I've been running this drive for about a month, and it rocks! Pros: Quiet Fast What more do you want? Cons: As with all drives, dosent work 100% with certain disks..I used Sony 16x Music CDs and they burned about 80% of the time no errors.
Summary: I bought this DVD burner to burn some recruitment dvds for my fraternity. The burner worked smothly for about the first 10 but after that we had to throw about every 5th one out. It left cirlces on the edge where no burning had been done and we got a message that said hardware problen.
