I have bought this for a very good price from a local shop for 80.73$ and used it for over the 2 months now and i never complained about it in anything, i have tried it with many burning progs and all gave me a excellent
I picked up this writer at Best Buy and have had no problems with it. I have burned a few cds and over 70 dvds with ease. Burns just as fast now as it did 4 months ago when I got it and as you can tell I have put it to good use. Mine came with dvd burning software which I didn't use (it was Nero). I also watch a movie or 2 a week and have never had an issue with its playback abilities. Rates a 10 with me.
