I bought this drive about a month ago, and could not get a decent burn out of it. I’m not an expert, but this drive should give me better burns than my old NEC1300, and - well - I was getting average to below average with my Riteck R02’s. I have 200 of these, as they are cheap, and worth the money IMHO. Good burns gave me 1.6 M PIE’s, and it only went down hill from there. Compare that to about 100K PIE’s with the 1620. Even the Ritek R04’s are burning bad. I can’t wait around for a good BIOS while this drive gathers’s dust. I’m very dissapointed - I wanted this drive to be my stapple.
So - back to Newegg it goes.
