Summary: Tried this on a Windows 7 machine. Loaded the software and it slowed down the machine. Its crippled as crippled can be. Suggest using Ashampoo Burning Studio Free v6 if you want a more professional approach to basic CD/DVD Burning.
Pros: Drive works as intended. Less noisy then other drives I had before
Cons: Included Nero 9 software is complete garbage.
Summary: Again--You Get What You Pay For!!! I've had 3 different internal Lite-On CD and DVD Burners over the past 8 years--and they all crashed within 2 years of purchase. I figured that Einstein's definition of insanity might apply towards my next purchase. So far at least, it was a smart decision.
Pros: First and foremost--the customized version of Nero that comes with it patches what's missing in Windows 7 Starter Edition, to enable you to burn and read DVDs with it (which Starter is not able to do natively--Thanks, Microsoft, for another "failure built-in" operating system!). And then there's ...
Cons: The only negative that I can think of (other than cost--and Newegg had reduced that to $44.95 from the 59.95 I was prepared to pay) is that Nero installs itself as the default media player in "Typical Install" mode without consulting you about it. Had to re-do the defaults for every media suffix ...
Summary: i got a newegg backpack with the order to store all my media in ..
Pros: beautiful finish same material as the original ps3,, this drive is exactly what i wanted. its quiet, it booted up and sync'd to my cpu with ease. i burned about 10 dvds the 1st 2 days i owned it & executed perfectly.. i went with sony for a reason, iv'e never have had 1 problem in all the years i...
Cons: not being usb powered..might scare some away from this drive..but it doesnt matter to me at all ..i love the product !!!
Summary: I bough this drive for work to ghost hard drives and I was able to boot to it and it does everything asked of it. I do like the very slim design but some people might be turned off by the need for an external power supply.
Summary: It is quite eye pleasing. Looks good on the desk. I got the white one. It comes in black.
Pros: 1. The drive has an external power source. Others have 2 USB ports to power them whish is fine except I only have 2 in my laptop and cannot resurrect my tablet without a keyboard plugged into one of those ports. With this solution I still have one free for a keyboard. 2. The drive is small with a...
Cons: 1. Having an external power source you arent going to be taking it on a plane with you and your laptop anytime soon to watch movies.
Excerpt: купил сегодня чёрного цвета за 1.600р сверху зелёный диод подсветка спереди оранжевый диод-индикатор диска доволен пока записывал только аудио-диски CD-R, на скорости 8х пишет за 7-10 минут, есть скорость 24х но её пока не проверял

; маркий глянец
Excerpt: Вполне себе вменяемо работает. Такой девайс нужно приобретать, если есть необходимость разгрузить блок питания на компьютере. Я собирал своей матери бесшумный неттоп, куда обычный CD не влез бы ни физически, ни по мощности БП.
