Well I have had the Wasabi DX for over 2 years now, and she finally called it quits.

I was having disk cannot be read errors, and no matter how many times I burnt the disk, verbatium medium, was having the same issues. The drive was also making strange noises, so I thought the drive was going, pulled the wasabi out, and tried again and no problems.

Since i softmodded already, not a big issue, but installed wiiflow, and a USB HDD drive, man, does it burn the pants off of a wasabi. No need for disks, easy as heck, just follow mauifrogs tuitorials for modding, I really kick myself now for not doing this earlier
