Its a decent burner, I haven't got the chance to work with many so not much to say. A sata cable didn't come with the drive so I had to visit the store.

I bought this because my Samsung monitor has never failed me yet 5-7 years.

What a smokin fast Burner! Ive never seen anything like it. I can burn a full DL disc in 12 minutes! The quality of burns are also excellent, even if your using cheap media. I was very impressed, and for $25 its definitely a steal.

If your debating on which burner to get, this is it. Trust me I was using a pioneer 212-D (which is decent) and It rejected 2 of my memorex discs. When placed in sammy it worked (could have been bad batch). So even if you get garbage media it may be usable with this drive. Excellent.

Bought a few and they all worked with no problems. Great little burner for the price.
