Pros: excellent drive when it worked, did everything I asked of it.
Cons: Like many other Sony products I have owned and/or read about as of late, quality is lacking. The drive failed on lead out on an important backup, coastered the disk (a cd-r), now will not recognize anything I put in. Sony support is horrible - 2 days no
