I'm mildly surprised y'all even bother reviewing optical drives anymore.  The primary use these days is pirating Xbox 360 games.

It's for making illegal copies of movies, you idiot!

Show me some supporting arguments please.

I, too, just installed this drive. While trying to get it to work I found that my windows install was corrupted. Reinstalled winodws and now the drive works along with a few other things I hadn't gotten around to fixing.

So a win/win for me.

I just bought an LG WH10LS30K 10x burner on newegg for $79 over black Friday weekend. With a combo special that added 10 Verbatim blanks the total was $95 including shipping.

Well, I am glad you like the drive as I just put it into my computer yesterday! And I bought a stack of Verbatim BD- R disks. My full price was $120/$6 shipping by TigerDirect via Amazon... The Verbatim disks were 25GB 2x Blu-ray Single Layer BD-R LTH. 20 disk spindle was $27 on Amazon.

The other poster may not agree, but I only recommend and buy Verbatim. I just have not had any issues with their media. Of course, I took the easy way out rather than test other brands. No issues, no need.

  I burned a data disk. Next is try a BD movie rip backup...

 The latest firmware I could find was 5L07...

poee

Maximum PC's reviews of optical burners are of limited usefulness since, for some reason, they only test with Verbatim media. I'm not sure who told them that Verbatim was the only media company out there. Perhaps it is an advertising agreement between the two companies? So, if you happen to have a lot of Verbatim media laying around, MPC picks for optical drives will be very important for you. If you prefer using different media, like Taiyo Uden for example, then... well, there are other review sites out there.
