Bought this drive for E349,- (approx $320,-).
Easy installation, had to install no drivers.
Just burned my first DVD and viewed it with no problem on mine stand-alone DVD player (Philips)

Bought a new Dell. P-4-2.8. Got this DVD-writer. Have a Hauppauge PVR-250 mpeg2/capture board.

I use Ulead VideoStudio 6.

Setup works perfectly for burning DVD+RW. I've done the highest quality burns I could do, full DVD+RW takes about 4 hours.

Very happy with this writer. Discs play on my home 5-disc Onkyo carousel and standalone Pioneer player as well.

Also got my drive from best buy with $50 rebate!...This is the best DVD+R/W drive out for the price!...I had a few problems with the bundled nero software recognizing my oprite CD-R/W drive, but I just uninstalled that version of nero(as I found that the bundled version was "drive specific") and installed the actual RETAIL version of nero. Speaking of BUNDLED SOFTWARE, DON"T USE IT if you already have the latest versions of Nero, MyDVd(Sux), and PowerDVD.. Overall, great drive, a definate buy...I take away 1 point because of the software and configuration problems I encountered(but maybe those were just my fault)...Already burned my 1st DVD(with Nero), right after installation..Woo Whooo!

Got it at Bestbuy for $238 after $50 mail-in rebate (Sep28 -02)

Installed fast and comes with Nero5.5, Sonic_MyDVD, PowerDVD_XP
and Pinnacle Studio7se.

No Manuals, so have to download online.

Have Seamless Link to protect against buffer underrun.

I highly recommend this drive.

Just got my Philips 228 DVD+R/+RW AND I am very happy with it! Very simple setup procedure, excellent software bundle and a very good quality piece of hardware that has produced 0% errors on my test CD and DVD burns using Verbitam DataLifePlus DVD+RW and BASF 1X-12X CD-R blank media (Even Windows XP pro loves this drive). I would also add that all CD-R software that I have tested so far....... CloneCD, CD-MATE, Blindwrite suite, Nero etc........ works without an hitch with the exeption of Roxio EZ CD Creator which failed to detect the drive. I did however test Roxio before I updated the Philips 228's firmware to the latest release so it may now be supported.

Excellent buy, highly recommended!

Good machine for the +RW crowd, makes DVD+r and -r compatible disks as well. If you already have MPEG2 files, the Sonic authoring sw it comes with is very simple to use.

I bought this burner after experiencing with the DVDRW208 because the +R gives me the better compatability with DVD-players. Installation is very easy. The package comes with Nero, MyDVD, PowerDVD and InCD. After playing a bit with InCD (packet-writer), I removed that one and now I only use the multi-session facility of Nero to add content. I always seem to encounter problems with sw like DirectCD and InCD in the long run. Maybe the Mount Rainier solution will solve this. MyDVD (3.0) is a very simple authoring program, but it does the job. Nero (5.5.8.1) and PowerDVD (4.0) work fine.
The DVD+RW and +DVD+R play well in the DVD950, the DVD962A and (of course) the DVDR1000 Philips players as well in my Toshiba SD M1401 PC drive.

Hard to say if this writer is better or worse than others. A few remarks:
- Installation is easy as you may expect from a standard IDE-drive.
- It does not read all the DVD's I've in my collection (7 out of 10).
- The site www.dvdplusrw.org claims DVD+R/W should be readable in a Toshiba SD-M1212 (the other DVD-reader in my system), it does not, not even after upgrading the firmware.
- I don't have a settopbox so I can't tell you about other compatibilities.
- I tried Sonic, but it failed at first (invalid instruction in mfc42.dll). After some debugging I decided to remove the Nero Imagedrive and yes, now it works fine. (Need a faster CPU though).
- Burnt my first holiday-DVD without problems
- I will try Nero Express in the near future (5.5.9.0).
