I haven't had any problems with this writer. I've burned quite a few CDs, DVDs, and a few DVD DL disks. Just yesterday, I burned three coasters with Memorex DVD+RW DL disks and I'm getting a hardware error: 04/44/D9. I just wanted to note here that my drive is OEM on a Toshiba laptop and they have new firmware available at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_dtlViewDL.jsp?soid=2024958&moid=1598559&rpn=PSAD0U&BV_SessionID=@@@@1664043640.1211149580@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccgadeeeddfldecgfkceghdgngdgmm.0&ct=DL&all_docs=false

I bought the DVR-K17 to replace the Tosihba/Samsung drive in my DELL Inspiron E1505. The bezel is a bit smaller so the fit isn't perfect, but the drive works quite well. Its an adequate reader that works on all but the most difficult discs. As a burner it is highly reliable. So far I've burned about twenty 8x TY and 8x Verbatim DVD-Rs without a single coaster.
I have no regrets about my purchase.
