Great Deal!!!

by CJ on 9/25/2007

I'll be Brief. 1 - Fantastic price - $39.95. 2 - Great Delivery - Even with the free shipping I had the drive in only 2 days. 3 - Super easy installation - 1 screwdeiver and only 20 minutes of my time, (including the software installation). 4 - Easiest DVD burning that I have ever experienced.
