Bought this after seeing review that this was a Ricoh OEM. Has bitsetting (Book Change) capability. I got mine retail packaged wth a load of software and a nice manual for less than the OEM Ricoh model bare. This drive reads faster than my old NEC ND-1100a. The Nero 5.5 it comes with gives you access to the Bitsetting/Book Change capability. Seems like a very good drive overall.

Got this from Dabs in the U.K. with firmware 1.08. Upgraded to 1.11 from the Aopen web site. A great little burner. Using Arita (Ritek) 4x disks, perfect burns every time so far. Considering you get a 52xCDR,12xCDR/W,4xDVD+R,DVD+R/W in the pack its a bargain. As far as I can tell its the same drive as the Ricoh MP5240A.
I've used Nero, AnyDVD, CloneDVD.
Can't find a fault with it. Just make sure you enable DMA in your IDE controller device settings. Get one.

I live in France in Paris area and I've bought this burner at AUCHAN for 149 Euros about 164 USD.AUCHAN is a well known big stores network in France.
It seems to be a very good bargain look.
For that money You've got a bundle of software not the up to date ones but not too bad for a start:
video studio 7
power DVD 4
Plus you've got 1 DVD+R 4x brand Ricoh, 1 DVD+RW brand AOPEN,1 CDR 700mb 52x Aopen, 1 CDRW 700mb 12x Aopen
Not too bad isn't it guys?
I've got an old DVD stand alone player Toshiba SD 100 E I've just tried to burn the DVD+RW and it Works perfectly!!
You just need to change the bitsetting as DVD Rom for the player.
Aopen DVD writer is probably a Ricoh DVD engine there is a little software for that job.
You'll get the software and information at http://www.dvdplusrw.org/resources/bitsettings_pc.html
