Reads and writes to KHypermedia and Imation DVD+Rs well. Can read and write to Memorex 4x DVD+RWs ONLY if it did the burning. If a NEC drive burns a Memorex 4x DVD+RW, it cannot be read. It does NOT read or write to Fuji DVD+RWs.

I got mine for $16 after rebate and so far it works great!I've already gotten an email saying that my rebate is approved also!

As other users have, I purchased this soley because of a rebate deal. After having used it VERY heavily for 4 months, it is apparant this DVD writer is not for those like me. The DVR Y08 is perfect for those requiring on a few dvd burns and normal CD burn usage. I have noticed high error rates and equally as high failure rates on the data. I've seen better quality from store-branded dvd burners before.
Score of 6 because its perfect for light to moderate users, but worrisome for anyone require reliability and moderate+ users.

Ditto to the post above. The drive works flawlessly with no problems. Great deal for only $14 after MIR from eCost.com.

This appears to be an OEM rebadge of the Pioneer DVR-A07. I purchased this from eCOST.com in October 2004 for $79 before a $65 mail-in rebate. The retail package came with two extra faceplates (silver, and black), Nero OEM Suite (Express versions of Nero 6), and the normal IDE cable and mounting screws.
