Rated 5 out of 5 by July 4TH Bang for Buck Burns disk fast no costers. Window sees drive plug and play. Great price paided at Newegg. New firmare easy to update. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features Excellent BD burner and as well as nonBD DVDs. Love this burner! May 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Read-only drive... On a fresh uncluttered install of windows 7, this drive works great as a CD and DVD reader, and looks nice too. However, when it's time to write anything, is simply won't work. Insert a BD-R, DVD-R, or even just an old fashioned CD-R, and the drive will pretend nothing has happened. No solutions for this problem anywhere, just lots of reviews with people experiencing the same problem. In other words, this drive is a complete failure - so please avoid. March 16, 2014
