Works very reliably. Fast burning, quality burns, reads very well (and fast when riplock is removed).

Been running this drive on and off for a month. About 50 burns without a coaster. CMC and MCC media with a couple of Prodisk. Burns whatever I throw in it.
Running with the firmware it came with, no upgrades, no hacks. Will consoider riplock removal.

I bought this burner after intense online burning reviews using -R 16x Verbatims (MCC). It did not disappoint. I was butchering -R disk after disk with my NEC's 3540 and 3550. Excellent burner verified by Nero Quality Check. A definite Best Buy at $35 delivered.
