You can't beat the price

  • Summary: Comments about Sony DRU840A 20x DVD±RW Drive: The DVD burner in my computer went "kaput" and I didn't want to have to mess with trying to buy one to install. I saw this one for such a cheap price and I was closed. Now that it has arrived, which only took 3 or 4 days, I can tell you that it is a superb piece of equipment. I'm very pleased. It is superior in speed and quality to my old burner.

  • Summary: Comments about Sony DRU840A 20x DVD±RW Drive: I have been using the drive in my desktop for 5 months and it has been quite reliable. I was running cheap media, so I was conscious, but I had zero costers beyond 35 odd burns which is amazing. Before this I was using a Sony dirve, which was a nice experience also.

Compatibility, woo hoo!

  • Summary: Comments about Sony DRU840A 20x DVD±RW Drive: I recently need to replace my dvd burner. The one that I had just wouldn't read discs anymore. I also had a stack of -R as well as +R dvds, and I don't know why I had them, probably I just bought the wrong one. Either way, when I saw this one that is compatible with both... and all dvd recordables, I was amazed. Looked at the price, and I was sold. It works great, very fast, haven't had any issues.
