So what do you make of this drive, is it a good drive…sorry donno how to interpret these scans(apart from quality score :stuck_out_tongue: )

The burn quality is excellent. I think it’s a good buy. :stuck_out_tongue:

ps : RICOHJPNR03 @ 16x is very well done, most writers don’t handle it well.

Is it possible to control the read speed of this drive? Under Vista Media Center, this drive is just way too loud while watching movies.
