      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Extremely fast, but not the most reliable.

      This drive came with my new Mesh PC, and on the whole I have been quite impressed. It rips CDs and DVDs extremely quickly, an audio CD takes just a couple of minutes. It also burns at an olympic pace aswell. As well as this it is great having a combo drive, and not having to remember what way round the drives were. The dual layer capablities were also a god send when my PC crashed, I had backed up everything I needed on one DVD. It is also fairly quite, once it starts up poperly, it is no more noisier than my PC fan.

      However there have been technical problems, occasioanlly, it decides to masquerade as a CD Drive rather than a DVD-RW, which is annoying as I cannot then burn a CD or DVD, but can still read DVDs [albeit with trouble]. This is quite temperamental though, and after I reinstalled Windows Xp it was fine for a while, then the problem occured again. Though not as badly this time. I feel there may be compatibility issues, with Windows XP, and I have read on other websites of people experiencing the same problems.

      Overall though it may not be the fastest writer out there, it does its job well when it works, perfect for home and small business use.
