Pros: OEM drive came with SATA cable, SATA power adapter, spec sheet, and CD with PowerDVD, Nero Express, Manual, etc. Most OEM products do not include these, so it was a nice suprise.
Overall Review: Almost bought a DVD ROM drive, but for just a few dollars more I could get this burner. Arrived in just 3 days. I like the OEM versions that come bubble wrapped instead of a retail box that I will just throw away.
Pros: ALL good about this burner. Fast, quiet, reliable. Already burned over 50 discs with it and no coasters. They were a mix of DVD-R's, DVD+RW's, DVD+R DL's, and CD's.
Pros: Reads, writes, burns fast without sounding like a jet taking off. Came with sata cable, molex to sata adaptor, and install cd with cyberlink and nero software. Of course fast delivery at a great price from newegg.
Cons: a litte loud when disk starts up but calms down in a few seconds.
Pros: Just a quick helpful note:
This came WITH a SATA cable and a Molex to SATA power adapter, and with Nero 7 OEM. (Nice surprise - wish I had known that in advance and saved a cable purchase.)
Since it was OEM I was expecting just the bare drive. Read and Write times are better than spec. on my testing. Good Drive
Cons: I do not like the bold white brand lettering on the drive. Minor issue.
Pros: Came with SATA power and data cables AND a dvd with PowerDVD, PowerProducer, Nero Express, In CD, Acrobat Reader, and a product manual on it (I didn't need these but it's a definite plus.)
Installed XP using this drive even though it's SATA (there are STILL some SATA burners on the market that don't work without drivers meaning you can't use them to install from CD/DVD.)
Item was well-packaged from Newegg.
Overall Review: I'm currently backing up my non-essential data using garbage media. 10/10 wrote successfully at 16x so far. ZERO coasters so far even with low quality media!
It has everything a retail package would have other than the box. Unless you really need Lightscribe this is the drive you want to buy.
Pros: Really good drive. Came with cables and CD that includes Nero 7. It is much shorter than the IDE drive it replaced. It is very quite and fast. Takes 5 min to burn a single layer DVD and 5 min to verify.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Always wanted to get a burner my Dell 9200 so I was shopping around for a while. Most of the popular drives that I was considering were reviewed as loud and none included cables, which I needed. And the software is definitely a bonus.
Also shipping was a blast. I got it next day.
Pros: Bought two of these drives for a custom PC for myself. Couldn't resist the free shipping. I definitely notice a HUGE difference in Read/Write speeds in comparison with IDE drives. Pay the extra few dollars for SATA. If you burn alot of DVDs/CDs its worth it.
As others here have mentioned, LG gives you a copy of Nero along with the drives which is pretty handy.
Cons: As I mentioned, I got two of these drives. The first one was in great shape, but the second drive was a bit banged up and the CD/Warrenty card were all crumpled and stuff. Fortunately I got two of these so I had atleast 1 CD that would work, but I'd have been in trouble if this was my only copy. But that might not be an LG problems so much as it is a Newegg packing/shipping problem.
Overall Review: Nice drives, good performance. Im happy :)
Pros: work like it should burns cd and dvd easy intall under windows xp. opens faster than my older lg.
Cons: its loud when burning, but thats not really a con, my experience is the noise varies between media some are louder then others.
Overall Review: mine didnt come with cables and s/w like others, i bought it because of that, so i called newegg and they send me out the 2 cables just not the s/w since it was a promo a while back, and they ran out, so dont expect 1, my first experience with newegg customer service and its worth 6 eggs.
