      New build burner

      I needed a new burner with the re-build of my gaming computer because my new Motherboard does not have an old IDE interface, only SATA connections. My old burner, while still working, has an IDE interface. My only other option was to purchase a PC card with an IDE adapter on it to connect my old burner to the new motherboard. Not only is this a pricey get around way to use the old burner, it takes up a PC slot that you may not want to use. Also, the data transfer rate is much slower using this back door type connection. For the price, this was a much better solution. I have a new burner to run my re-built computer with fast data transfer with ease of installation. Definitely worth every penny, especially considering what I spent on all the new components. Great burner for the price.

      I build pc's as a hobby and needed to pickup up a drive at my local bestbuy but their prices were better online so I chose in store pickup and to my surprise it arrived in two days! How's that for quick delivery! On to the review this drive does exactly as described and I have been a long time purchaser of asus products. This unit comes in black trim along with screws. Supported by most burning software it will not disappoint you.

      This drive is incredibly functional , versatile, and best of all cost efficient. It burns DVDs and CDs with ease, comes with NERO burning Suite, and is whisper quiet, I forgot I was burning media it's so quiet. Easy to install, just plug in the SATA from the back of the drive into the motherboard of the unit and you're done! No BIOS setup, nothing extra to do, Windows recognizes immediately. =)

      Great DVD Drive

      Fairly easy to install. I thought this was an IDE interface because I mistakenly believed my motherboard had only IDE connectors but I'm glad I was wrong. This drive has a SATA interface which matches the drive that came with my computer. I've used it a few times. It's fast and it's quiet and has its own version of BURN-Proof (can't remember the name). A really good DVD burner and I got it at a bargain price.

      Hadn't bought a DVD RW or CD RW in a while, was happy to see the prices available through Best Buy and made my decision to purchase easy. The online chat (twice) gave me two answers to cables either being included or not. No cables with this drive but they are easy to find and not very expensive.

      My old DVD drive wasn't reading or burning discs any more and after looking to see what was available I purchased this drive. My desktop computer is also an Asus and I thought it would be a good match. So far it has worked flawlessly.

      I just had the help in building my first rig and only went with the finest. While I could have went with something much cheaper I figured if I was going to go all out might as well do it correctly and I’m really happy with the outcome!

      I bought this extra burner for my computer, because i always like to have two of them running. 1 because i can loop stuff from one burner to the next and if i'm backing up stuff to disks i can rotate them so i wear them out evenly.
