My scores for this drive (check my signature):
1: 9 - Very good, but some PIE/PIF spikes when writing DVD+R at 16x and CD-RW writing quality is poor.
2: 9.5 - Close to excellent, the only minor dravback is that the OPC feature seems a bit too sensitive with some media. Excellent overspeeding abilities.
3: 9 - Very good, fastest DVD+R DL writer and overall good CD/DVD-writing speeds.
4: 9- Very good, and seems to be able to read pretty scratched media too.
5: 10 - Excellent! Filled with features, bitsetting, overspeeding, error checking and all the other features in Q-Suite.
6: 8 - About average/good.
7: - skipped
8: 9 - good design, drive is pretty short. Average noise. Working cooling feature.
Overall (not average): 9 - Overall the best drive on the market right now in my opinion.
