I bought this last minute because a friend of mine told me it was good and I trusted his opinion. But now i started to look around a bit and it looks like there are better burners with lightscribe for cheaper!

So, is the one I bought good for the price or do you think i should cancel my order and get a different one?

(the one i bought is from tiger, the cheaper ones are from newegg)

You might get one a few bucks cheaper, but this seems like a decent deal. My biggest complaint with Tiger is they always rape you on the shipping. If you can still cancel it, go for it. :D

well, from looking around the scene this is a really good burner. I hear its used a lot for backup up xbox360 games. I had one till I moved. It is really reliable, and i never made a coaster.

Yeah you could probably ship a body for less than they charge you for a drive.
That's why I never even look there for anything.

No it's a good drive, just be careful and buy it elsewhere if the freight is too high.

I have a Pioneer. Cost about 20 bucks. Funny thing. Got some Double-Layer discs. Works just fine with VSO DVDCopy. Doesn't work at all with Nero, the trial version of which was packaged with the drive. Hell, it didn't even READ DVD video out of the box. But after the appropriate codecs were downloaded, and I deleted Nero, I haven't had a problem. Even copy movies with it!

Lightscribes are almost impossible to read - I just use a sharpie. And write or draw on the disc. ;)

Graphics are kind of weak, but labling is alright. I dont often use the lightscribe. But the drive is a good one none the less.
