Have this in an Averatec 6235 laptop. Works fine with DVD+R discs up to 8x speed. Firware appears to limit all 8x DVD-R discs I have tried to 4x. But they burn fine (just slower burning than the +R discs). Haven't tried a Dual Layer disc yet. Some OEM versions of this drive supposedly won't burn DVD-R discs at all (this is intended for some reason). If this is yours, a "crossflashed" firware update may fix it. Just be aware of the risks of firware flashing before you try this!

Excellent Dual Layer & dual format (+r &-r) slim DVD writer. I have had it installed it in my Dell Latitude C640 now for three months and has never given me a bad disc (I have burt over 100 DVDs and CDs in these three months).
It is quiet, reads and writes very fast. This drive can read all discs, never had a problem neither reading nor writing. I have also tried different DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, CD-R, CD-RW media, and this drive can handle all of them!
There are quite a lot of firmware upgrades available already (see http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=108852&page=2), and it's really easy to make the drive region free (see http://dhc014.rpc1.org/LtnRPC/index.htm).
In summary, best DVD writer I have ever had (I have had around 10 in the last 3 years, inc the NEC 6500A, which I thought was awefull!).
Buy it for your laptop, you won't regret it.
