I have this drive since 2010 and it is simple and convenient to use.
Small (almost like a half rack 2U), and serves as my CD player when I do home or when to put a soundtrack ...
I know with a laptop is easily made a recording "console output" but sometimes it is roughly convenient to burn a CD of a concert on the fly.
The drive accepts analog (RCA) or digital (SPDIF), which allows me to stay digitally from my DM-4800.
The startup is super simple, and no need to burn a CD manual. Simple, I tell you. I do not use the indexing capabilities, but they exist.
