This unit won't play DVD movies; Buslink's tech support told me via email that it was because the firmware version (1.75) was obsolete. I found firmware updates online, but they won't install because they don't recognize the unit, even though I'm using it just fine to read and burn data DVDs.
By the way, the DVD movies that I can't play run just fine on my wife's older, slower computer.

Got this at BestBuy for $99 yesterday along with some FUJIFILM (actually Ricoh ones according to dvdinfopro) DVD+R discs for testing. I originally had the Digital Research +RW drive but had problems with that. Anyway, this one seems to work fine with the media I bought - just backed up a DVD9 (LOTR 2 Towers) using AnyDVD and DVDPro according the linked instructions in the rip section.
This burner is actually the Lite-On LDW-401S. I was able to successfully update my firmware to the ES0G version available on the liteonit website.
The +RW disc it came with wasn't compatible with my laptop DVD nor my old DVD Player (Sony DVP S300). Still, I'm pretty happy so far :)

Just got this DVD Burner on Ebay for $120, the price is very good for a Dual Spec DVD Burner (this DVD Drive is Made by NEC). So far worked good. Instalation was very easy, takes only 30 minutes. The item i purchased was brand new, factory sealed, a couldn't find any warranty registration on the box. It cames with CyberLink DVD Playback software (ok dvd player software) and Roxio 6.2 Easy CD Creator DVD Edition, now, Roxio stater edition is a piece of junk, cant do much with that software, it asks you to upgrade all the time and cost around $100. So far, good DVD Burner, Junk Software..... worth the low price for a Dual Spec, burns DVR-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, CD-R and CD-RW. If i have any problems in the future i will post here later.

Purchased it for $140.00, and it works great for the price. Packaged software sucks.
