"All in all this is a pretty decent burner. It reads at it's rated speed,
writes fairly quickly, has perfect DAE, and reads scratched and damaged disk
exceptionally. It comes with a pretty lean bundle - no CD-R or CD-RW media
at all. Really I guess it's no big deal, as long as you have a few blanks
laying around. What this drive lacks in hardware bundle it makes up for in
software bundle. PlexTools, Roxio, Dantz, to name a few titles."
