"I have EXACTLY THE SAME thing that Erickhockman has!!"
20 January 2010
Pros: I have been doing all my burnings with this dvd player since around 2005. Has done me good up until now JANUARY 2010. Good thing it comes with NERO program. There are updates for this player and I havent really had any prob. up until now.
Cons: Wish there was a fix for this problem that I started having of not able to read DVD-R. Also more updates for the drivers. This player doesnt really have much support from SONY.
Summary: This burner is pretty nice. It burns at 18x on compatible16x +R/-R. I've reached 18.1x write speed with Sony DVD-R'sbut only 16.1x with Memorex DVD-R's. I guess they have to becompatible. That's the only downside to the Write.The Read, however, could use some help. A single layer4.7GB DVD+-R will read at a max of 12x and a dual-layereddisc maxes out at around 8x.
