Pros easy installation but don't recommend for burning movies with iDVD software on a Mac
Cons iDVD does not recognize the DVD burner. Have to use a hack to get it to work. This is mostly apple's fault. Apple stores carry sell this burner but they don't mention this major flaw.
Pros I just plugged it to my WinXP notebook and it was ready to go! Reads and Writes at blistering fast speeds. Nice solid feel.
Cons The little magnetic flip door can be a bit annoying. Fan can be a bit loud.
Pros fast, compatible with os 10.3.5 it seems
Cons can't rate its reliability yet since i just bought it 9/23/04
Pros Not sure which burner you're all talking about; mine has a jack....it's located next to the volume dial...p.s. works fine with my mac sys 10.2.8 hint...upgrade!
Cons haven't found any yet
Pros Reliable, Fast and works great with Toast
Cons Isn't fully Apple compatible. Can't burn from apps like you can with the Que CD burner.
