I had the same drive for a few days and returned it
because it wouldn't work properly under FreeBSD.
It didn't recognise discs that worked in other drives,
ripping was real slow and it caused system or application
hangups every now and then.
It caused less problems on GNU/Linux, but even there
ripping some problematic discs was too slow and watching
them from disc without stuttering impossible.
I'm still looking for a replacement, so if anyone can
name a drive that properly plays or rips all discs from
the Al Bundy box without issues (under FreeBSD),
I'd appreciate it.
