"Sony should be ashamed"

rcastardo, CNET
6 February 2011
  • Pros: No pros - except remote easy to use
  • Cons: 1st unit failed 1/2 way thru a burn. 2nd unit would not recognize any blank DVD at all. 3rd unit made 1 copy then refused to make anything over 20 minutes, and would not finalize the disk. Gave up.

Sony DRU-510A

astaples, Rate it all!
30 August 2005
  • Summary: The hardware itself is very nice and does what it should most of the time. It's extremely fast and quite. The only trouble is that Sony's support for DVD-RW is pretty weak and doesn't play well with other RW devices (e.g. the CD-RW drive my computer came with preinstalled). It ships with NERO Burning ROM SE, which is a VERY nice piece of software - the best, in my opinion.
