 Almost perfect

Pretty much a perfect little drive, especially for £17. Won't need much more than this without going Blu-Ray.

Be aware that this is a bare drive though, meaning it comes in a little thin plastic bag, with an instruction sheet and no cables, so you'll need your own SATA cable to install it.

 Best value on the net!

Hey. I bought one of these drives primarily for backing up my xbox 360 games. Got it along with some 2.4x Verbatim DVDR+DLs and all I can say is it works perfectly. This drive is extremely quiet, solid and stylish and has so far given me 10/10 good burns.

So if you're looking for a good drive to backup your 360 games or just a good all rounder this drive will work out of the box with no firmware update needed.

You can get these drives a couple of quid cheaper from other sites but the shipping makes it more expensive therefore this is the cheapest place I have found on the net to get this specific drive.

Shipping was fast too. Thank you play.com! 5 stars

 Not Impressed

Well I have to say I am not very impressed. I thought I was upgrading going from a Pioneer 107 to this model - how wrong I was.

While the 107 is slower, it burns to all kinds of discs and very rarely produces a coaster - this 216 model has been producing coasters at an alarming rate - what's the point in having fast speeds when they don't work. Very disappointed.

 Great drive!!

I've had many dvd drives, since i go through a lot of burning, and by far pioneer has been the best... I have this drive on another computer, after having my sony one fail on me i desided to try this one out. Not only does it sucessfully burn at 2.4 with cheap media but it also burns at a very high quallity. Its a must!

EDIT: IM Going to buy another one because i want to burn two at a time!

 Quiet and Speedy

Did a lot of research to find a good drive, and most internet sources pointed to this drive.

Must say that when the drive is in use it's much quieter than my previous drive, and the tone of hum is a lot more acceptable! As for the actual writing, it's writing perfectly on my Verbatim, so no complaints there either.
