This is a perfectly decent burner. I have not had any coasters with it. Both burning and reading are very and error-free. I've used it with Verbatim, TDK, Maxell and Fuji media without any issues whatsoever.
Cons as described. Having said that about this product, I've used lots of samsung drives before, and they were fine. NCIX was AWESOME at replacing this item for me. Giving it satisfactory, because if my particular unit wasn't faulty, I'm sure it would be a perfectly good drive. But my unit wasn't, thus the lower score.
Drive has a smaller footprint than other drives. This makes it fit better in smaller cases. In system where the power supply is top mounted, having an extra half-inch or so shorter can make a big difference if clearance. The only issue is that when the tray is ejected, the disc is not fully exposed and a portion remains inside. For most people this should not be a problem except for those who are extremely very picky. The drive LED is very small and unobtrusive. The light actually shines through a small pin-sized apperture no bigger than the manual cd eject hole. Burned close to 100 standard DVDs (various brands) and a dozen lightscribe discs without any coasters. Since this is an OEM drive - there's no software included so either download some freeware or purchase burning software. I'm using Nero 10 and Surething CD labeller deluxe lightscribe edition 5. If your drive is not recognized by your system, try downloading the lighscribe system software patch (LSS) from www.lightsribe.com. The latest version 184.108.40.206 seems to recognize this drive without any problems.
I like Samsung writers because I find them to be much quieter than LG. Haven't tested the write quality but so far, no coasters. I only use this for reading discs and occasionally writing an audio CD for the car. For the price, I can't complain.
