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 no problems connecting this but had two connected at same time and system didn't want to recognize them both all the time. It may have been the motherboard or cables - so not sure why it did that. The drive works well otherwise.

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.

Seemed okay but burning CD-R's disks often lead to "coasters" with failed burns. DVD's are okay. Good thing I have another drive that works with my CD's. Might be a fault in the firmware with CD's.

This was a drive that I installed when building my computer system. I wanted the Light Scribe capability to save on labels. It's pretty neat but may be more than the normal user wants to mess with. When I created a recovery disk I use Light Scribe to label the disk and it's always worked without error.
