The only issue with the writer is it's kinda slow. About 14 minutes to burn at 8x (ack). Nero (added that) confirms starting at 2x, then switching to 4, then 6, then finally 8x. Ultimately back to 4x near end.
My first time with a notebook burner. Perhaps par?
Other than that, all is great. Wireless with the Acer and all.
