This is a good, solid, simple DVD/CD player-recorder. It does come pre-packaged with Nero 9 Essentials which I am less than thrilled about, but it's included. Nero 9 Essentials is essentially intended to entice you into buying the full version of Nero… but N9E is free and it will work unless you must have the other features. One minor installation issue. My system is just over 2 yrs old and I have a SATA HD, so I had SATA data connections available on the motherboard. My problem was all the SATA POWER connections (3) are on the same line from the power supply. My Wal Mart doesn’t carry the IDE-SATA power connection converters. I had to relocate the HD beneath the new DVD so the SATA power connections would reach both devices. It wasn’t a big problem, but if you are looking for a replacement for an existing IDE DVD (as mine was), you might have the same problem.
