  • Pros: Fast burner, rarely ruins CDs, above average CD ripping
  • Cons: Extremely noisey, often "misfires", problems recognizing blank CD-R/CD-RWs

Would have been great if it worked more often

  • Summary: Go with another brand like Ricoh or Plextor. Yamaha just hasn't gotten it together with this one. I am suspicious of the other "LightSpeed" drives.
  • Pros: Fast write speed, when it works...
  • Cons: Noisy as an airplane. Rattles too. Isn't so reliable. Expensive for the speed.
