No Problems whatsoever!

Strengths: Great quality. Reads like a charm. Burning is mistake free!

Weakness: None so far!

Did a great job of reading all DVDs, even ones that were a bit scratched up. Did a much better job than my old DVD burner (Samsung). The DVD-burning was smooth and mistake free :). For the price (~$40), you cannot beat the quality.

Sony DRU-120C Dual Layer DVD±RW

Strengths: Solid drive and easy to use

Weakness: No lightscribe

Got it for about $10 after rebate about two months ago. So far so good. Since most of my DVDs are 4x and 8x, I have not got much chance to try higher speed (only once and had no problem). For my lower speed discs, the result is pretty good. I have not waste one disc yet. However, it does have some noises when reading DVD at high speed (don't know whether it's normal or a defect).

Great Drive

Strengths: Brand, Speed, Dual Layer Support

Weakness: WIsh it could lightscribe

I am using this drive with my newly built PC and I am very happy so far. I had some 8X DVD media which I would only work on 4X speed on my laptop, now this burner burns it at 8X without any errors. I have not tried a 16X media yet but I am sure it will work pretty good. CD/DVD read speed is fast as well.

Sony (LG) has a winner

Strengths: Fast, cheap and overburning-capable

Weakness: Clicking sound after the disc loads.

This is a great burner for the price. It includes 16X burning for DVDs while also able to burn DVD-RAM at 5X(which I have not tried). The drive looks good and installation was quick and painless. The only drawback is a clicking noise that I hear for the first few minutes when a disc is inserted and it spins up. Very happy with my purchase because it replaced an older NEC 8X drive without DVD-RAM...

Sony DRU-120C

Strengths: Price is cheap, good looking drive

Weakness: No lightscribe

I got the drive for $25 AR, the drive come with Sony's own software, no Nero, and it is not a re-badged lite-on drive. Everything seem to make in China this days, so hope this drive will last.
