"very unreliable burner"1.0 starson by Jordan Katz
Pros: sometimes it actually burns and verifies successfully
Cons: so much of the time it doesn't work
Summary: I've had nothing but headaches with this burner. I have had so many burns fail I don't keep count any more. I talked to technical support at length and they sent me a new unit. No better. I bought the fancy version of Toast. No difference. I bought fancier supposedly higher quality DVD's... no improvement. This thing fails on about 1 in 3 burns, and it happens either during the burn or during the verification step. There is no rhyme or reason to it... I try the burn again, and it works... or it doesn't.... and then I try again and it does. And I'm not even burning a high speeds. It fails often at 2x! Other burners I've used just work and work almost all the time. Okay, sometimes a burner fails due to a glitch or bad disc, but this one is just a piece of junk. If you want to waste a lot of time and throw out a lot of DVD's, buy this model for sure! Oh yeah, and those double layer DVD's... good luck!
