what do you mean about worthless...... I went to one of the site, and check the price, and it was about 80 dollars... and you think that's worthless.. um..
That's the site if you are wondering.

Yep, worthless. I could go to Newegg and get a GOOD DVD burner for less...

To copy a full (700mb) cd your looking at 35 minutes. 4x is the speed that burners were at before you started seeing them in computers as standard.

Its slow. Though the price is right.

*smacks self*
Sorry, it's probably the paint fumes...

It's not very good, I can tell you that. But for an older machine, it might be nice.

EDIT: $30-$40?? No way. Maybe $5-$10, if you're lucky.

If you find someone that has a old computer and doesn't know what they are doing than maybe. But look at the drive I posted, its a 16x dvd burner thats brand new and only cost $45.

I'd say its worth between $10 and $25 but most likely in the $10 area.
