BEWARE - Memorex has switched the unit in a similar box to this drive with the same stock number but it is now a Lite-On unit not NEC. Stick with the NEC - the lite-on is really bad. Check my comments in the "l" version of the memorex reviews. Lite-On SOHW-1673S is what this is cloned from I believe. The unit I had was using this models firmware.

Agree with all, very good player/burner. Kicks butt over my old Pioneer A06. Had the same issue with the firmware upgrade, still haven't received a answer from Memorex as to why.
Upside: No coasters as of yet, burns faster than a drunken slut.
Downside: Problems with the included Nero package, kind of buggy at times.

Ooops! Forgot to give a rating. I'll give it a 9.5 - It seems to work great so far. I do wish they would have included at least one DL disk though. I'd like one to test for compatibility with my players before I invest in a bunch of them.

Works great! Only issue came when I went to do a firmware upgrade that I downloaded from Memorex. It errors out saying "Target NEC ND-3520A is not found correctly." So it would seem that this is really an NEC drive. Or at least Memorex thinks so. :)
If this is true, I wonder if it will take the beta firmware that is floating around.... anybody know?

Awesome drive only $80. Not my first drive, but couldn't give a ten because it does not like all discs. Mostly good though works well with DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink, and Nero.

Just updating since my last post. I upped my rating to a 9, 50 DVD's burned - no coasters! Very easy to use, i am TOTALLY satisfied. Just wish i had one of these a year ago (would have saved me a lot of vcd conversions!)

Only gave this an 8 due to it is my 1st dvd-burner. Install was easy and using it for 3 days and produced 10 dvd's on cheap Staples -R & -RW media (cheap as far as rating sites go) no bad burns yet. i am very pleased for the $99 price. The dvd's play on my cyberhome 402 no prob, -RW and -R. No complaints
