    "It's slim, it's lightweight, and it's fast. What more do you need? For those having issues with speed, the drive is set to what they call "quiet mode" out of the factory. You can easily change this to "performance mode" to get the advertised speeds of the drive."

    "It's a nice-looking and well-performing Blu-ray burner. Using a slot-loading mechanism helps with the aesthetics of the device. Use your own Blu-ray burning software for this one as the included software is a trial version and is not good."
