The picture was a bit of a giveaway for me knowing it would come as is (without anything).
For some i can assume they would be disappointed to open the box and only find the drive.

My case is a Cooler Master and does not require screws to fit a rom but if you do,
you can buy 50 for a few pound on amazon and i'm sure you can get less screws for pennies on other sites.

Is it real?
one reviewer says it does not show Pioneer on the front so they were unsure if it was real or not?
I can confirm that if you right click your drive then click properties,hardware it should come up something like this......PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-221L ATA Device.

I have been backing up my 1tb external so 8.5gb discs have been at the ready and it's safe to say i have not had any problems or errors so far.

Anybody with problems will always assume it's the drive and not even account the discs been used or the programs.
The discs i have been using have been ARITA and AonePLUS+.
The program been used is Ashampoo Burning Studio.

The drive didn't come with a program?
Again,
something i expected and i probably would have used my own anyway.
Everybody likes to use their own brand of software so for a large portion of user, this would not be a issue.

If you are new to all this then i would get some free trials or ask around to see what other people use and see which names crop up the most.

At £12.61 with free delivery, it really is not going to break the bank.
I think some people expect a £100 dvdrw for pocket change and moan when it does not do what they want but that aside, i have not had any problems so i would call it more of a steal.

Why is it so cheap?

I purchased this to replace an old Sony unit that had started being picky about which DVDs it would play and seemed to have forgotten that it was capable of writing discs too. I was going to get a Samsung unit which was a bit cheaper, but there were limited delivery options which bumped up the price. I got this with free delivery and it arrived within a week.

I've used the unit extensively and it works perfectly. Not only that but, unlike some reviewers, I've found it very quiet whether it's reading or recording. Highly recommended, but do note that it's completely bare-bones - no cables, mounting bolts or manual.

I needed a DVD burner with LabelFlash for my new Windows 7 Acer computer, and this fits the bill perfectly. It's the same make as the old drive, and exactly the same size, so it was easy to fit. But it wasn't easy to find information on LabelFlash compatible software though! There's no documentation with the drive, and no helpful information on the Pioneer website (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Computer/Computer+Drives/DVR-221LBK).

The IndexMaker software provided by Yamaha is available on the LabelFlash website, but it's very basic, and not compatible with Windows 7. Roxio Creator NXT no longer seems to support LabelFlash, only LightScribe. The only programme I found to work with both Windows 7 and LabelFlash, was Nero CoverDesigner Essentials, which is part of Nero 9 Essentials. It offers a rather basic label designer, with a picture of a disc, and tools to position and resize JPEGs over the template. There is also a simple text editor, but this doesn't seem to have the ability to wrap text at all. This might possibly be improved if I upgraded to Nero 2015 Classic, but I'm not sure it's worth it just to give more label-printing options. Printing my first LabelFlash label (on the label side) with a JPEG and some text took about 15-20 minutes, and I have to say it looks pretty nice. Of course, it's a monochrome blue & silver image, so not fantastically detailed or contrasty, but pleasing to look at and easily legible. One useful feature might be a preview function to get an idea of what the finished article will look like before printing.

The disc drive specs (read/write speeds, disc compatibility etc) are pretty much the same as my old one (a Pioneer DVR-219RS) , but I did notice that it seems to be much quieter, which is a bonus. I'm very pleased with my new drive, although it took a fair amount of work to find the best software to use the LabelFlash functionality. The drive is being offered at a good price by the seller.

Many drives these days run pretty quietly, but this comes at the cost of performance. This drive spins up to full speed in useful scenarios (so say installing software from disc is quicker), yet is still as quiet as the others when doing something low-speed such as DVD playback. I've bought at least ten of this model of drive so far, no problems with disc types or failures.

Worked straight out of the box. I have burnt loads of DVDS since I have had it, and no problems.

RUBBISH!!! Wrote 1 DVD then started only reading DVDs intermittently. On it's way back to Amazon. Have replaced with yet another Samsung SH-224SB (my 3rd from the Amazon site in the past 2 months )..the previous 2 are working perfectly..
