This is just a bare drive so does not come with any cables or instructions. No problem for me as that's all I wanted. The drive works perfectly well and is automatically installed under Windows. Time will tell how robust it is but for the price it appears good value for money.

Does exactly what it should. This is my first SATA-enabled DVD/RW drive and it is definitely faster and recording quality is better. This drive took me 30 seconds to install (once i had figured out the cables inside my PC!) and was immediately recognised by my Windows 7 installation. Nothing fancy or flashy. This drive makes the most of the audio on my mainboard, which previous non-SATA drives clearly didn't.

Never had a problem with NEC optical drives.
I tend to get an average 4 years out of a drive before it needs replacing.
If its an NEC....buy it.

Best DVD RW 24 Sep 2009
By Asim Bijarani - Published on Amazon.com
I previously had Sony DRU-840A DVD burner installed in my system but it stopped working after one year, now I have bought new Sony (again sony) AD-7240S and I have burned few DVD-R discs, it's working fine, no any noise nor any data write error, VEry easy to install, and It has very fast burning speed. however I usually burn DVD-Rs at 8x.
This is the best DVD burner for this price.
I suggest this to everyone.

Great product 17 Nov 2009

Nothing negative to say; this is a top rated product and preformed exactly as expected. It is an OEM / bare bones model so you need your own cables but that shouldn't be a big deal.

This was very well packaged by amazon with a custom foam insert and plenty of padding.

Decent drive. Relatively reliable. 14 Jan 2010

This drive works well. I've burned few hundred DVDs and CDs without much difficulty. I've only had rare issues with discs sporadically. This may not be the drive but the blank media? Setup/installation was a snap. The speeds are reasonable. I've had no major issues.
Very fast 28 Oct 2010
By Overlord - Published on Amazon.com
This is the only DVD burner I've bought, with the exception of the slow pig that came in the laptop.
System has 8 15K scsi drives, XPsp2, and this is the only SATA device.
Burns a ripped/shrunk single layer DVD in 5 - 6 minutes from an iso file. Never have done DL DVDs but will try 1 this afternoon. Uh... <cough!> basically I hadn't realized it did DL until I brought up the specs...
I've seen it spike to 17x - 19x later in the burning (toward the outer edge of the disk).
Occasionally it burns fast enough to suck out the buffer causing a fractional pause and lower 'calculated' speed.
Burns with many different Utils but I generally use ImgBurn these days; fast, no frills, no problems.

Ease of installation? C'mon, 4 screws, 2 cables, and Windows uses it's own drivers.
Ease of Use? Does what the programs and I tell it to, fast with no backtalk. That's ease to me.
Reliability? So far so good. ~14 months now. Some days it gets quite a workout.

Looking for another for an ex for Xmas (heh, sorry).
Rock Solid Performance 29 Nov 2010
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I work at a recording studio and burn audio CD's for final glass mastering every day. I use two burners regularly and the LG burner that came with my Alienware computer failed after two years. My other drive is an older Plextor that is still working without error. I was tempted to replace the LG with another Plextor, but read many reviews of the Sony and thought I'd give it a try.

It's only been a few weeks, but have burned 40-50 discs with rock solid performance. I ran tests for C1, C2 and CU errors right away on my first burns. I burned a 25 minute audio disc and a 78 minute disc, both at MAX speed and at 24x speed. All discs came out with ZERO C2 and CU errors. C1's are common and not an issue, but those were few. I still burn my critical masters at 24x speed, but even at MAX, the performance is solid. I couldn't be more pleased to have the same quality as my Plextor drive, but at a cheaper price.
