This drive came with my computer. So far, I haven't had any problems with it. I've burned a lot of media (some good, some cheap blanks) and so far have not had any coasters or discs that wouldn't play in a standalone player.

I'm not sure why one of the previous comments (posted by singhy) stated that this burner doesn't write to DVD-RAM because it definitely does. So far I've burned 5 DVD-RAM disks without any problems. I've also burned more than 10 single-layer and dual-layer movie and data disks (on Verbatim media) without any problems either. So far so good.

I understand this does NOT burn to DVD-RAM, only reads. Check out http://www.samsungoms-europe.com/samsung.php?section=product&id=SH-S162L&group=multi.

best writer i came across so far,problem free installation,great firmware backup,have yet to find a dvd-r that it will refuse to write ,as for speed it is better than average but not a racehorse.
