I've also had no problems burning DVDs and CDs at high speeds.

Construction is a little weak: disc tray is very loose.

If you read independent benchmarks, you will find that it's one of the best out there. In my own tests, I found that it does what it should, and does it well. I haven't tested the lightscribe, but I have tested reading DVDs and CDs, and this drive is fast. I've also had no problems burning DVDs and CDs at high speeds. It does not have problems due to riplock even with the included firmware. In other words, you don't need to do anything special to get high performance.

Unless you need Blu-ray and HD DVD (which is often included with Blu-ray drives as a throw in and seems useless, but lets you buy HD DVD closeouts for $3) then this drive should have everything you need.

This thing is FAST!! You may be able to find something even faster, but not for under $50. I've been burning CD's in under 60 seconds with this drive. That's probably the norm now, but before this I was stuck with a CD burner from the stone age. Setup was a snap, I didn't even need to install a driver. You will have to go to the lightscribe website ([...]) to get some (free) software, but it's not a driver, it's just for creating LightScribe labels. I haven't burned any DVDs yet, but I have done CDs and I've used LightScribe and they both work fantastically. The quality of burn for both is flawless.

P.S. Be aware that this is a SATA drive, not an IDE!
It doesn't come with any cables, but that was expected because it's a bulk product.

If you don't need Blue Ray this is a great drive. I tried the cheaper LG which burns well, but it constantly accessed the system not allowing sleep.

The drive works great. The one issue potential buyers should be aware of is that this is intended to be a replacement drive, so it doesn't come with any mounting brackets or burning software. This wasn't a problem for me since it was replacing an older drive which was starting to fail.

Had 2 of these. Cheaply made. Slow to record, slow to burn a light scribe image. Switched to Samsung Internal Half Height DVD-W Supermulti SATA 22X Lightscribe (Black)= http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HFWBIA/ref=oss_product and never looked back. Have 4 of them. 18x burns dvd. Fast (IMO) light scribe burns (20 mins vs 35 mins). Gave one of the sony's to a friend, put the other one in my wife's 'puter.

I installed this Sony DVD writer in a new build. I have all SATA connectors from my motherboard, so having this drive is great. I was looking forward to the speed and its ability.

As a DVD reader, it works well, but I have had several problems with it. I tried writing to a dual layer (Amazon DVD+R DL) disc using Windows 7 program and it failed every time. I installed Nero 10 because I knew it would recognize this drive. The Nero 10 did pick up the drive and also checked its firmware, which is up to date. But I tried writing with it and it also failed. I then used the diagnostic program with Nero and it never gets through the program without failing.

I then took a disc and tried burning with my old ASUS DVD writer and it had no problems. I tried going to a slower speed with this drive and it could not get through a burn. So, basically it works like a DVD reader but cannot write to a dual layer. I am going to try different discs but if I have to buy new discs, then I am better off getting a better DVD writer.

This product does the job,but construction is not so good.The reading quality is not good compared to my other drive.The only reason we purchased it was to use the light scribe but I was disappointed how flimsy the tray was.I just primarly use it to burn light scribe nothing else.I wouldn't recommend this product

This is a very solid and capable drive to burn DVDs and CDs. Quick loading response and fast burn times. It is louder than the Sony Blu-ray internal drive I was using, but that one may just have been extraordinarily quiet. The tray also is a bit flimsy, and the loading is noisier than my previous drive. For the price and performance, the noise doesn't seem to be a big deal.
