NO GOOD!!!

Sheldon P., Newegg
6 December 2006
  • Summary: I read the reviews after the fact, I sugest everyone do the same with every product. The reviews are the one of the big pro's of NEWEGG! I just hope I can get my money back.
  • Pros: They repacked it nice!!!
  • Cons: My unit had a dusty disc drawer! And I dont mean a little dust, it was a lot of dust and it would not read any disc.

Warranty support

Crispin C., Newegg
24 November 2006
  • Summary: This is the third lite-on product I've owned that has failed before the warranty had expired.
  • Pros: Burns to multiple discs.
  • Cons: Lite-On support is a joke, sent mine in for service in June and here I am six months later and they still have it, I had burned less than a dozen dvd's when it failed.

I do not recommend Lite on

Anonymous, Newegg
24 September 2006
  • Pros: NONE - After setting this recorder up it would not read anything I put in it, kept coming up reading "No Disc. Since this item was warranted through the manufacter only I called Lite-on . They said they would RMA but would have to replace with another model.
  • Cons: A non working recorder straight out of the box. I had to pay $xx to ship to Lite on for replacement and I'm not getting the model I ordered.

Didnt last very long

Anonymous, Newegg
27 August 2006
  • Summary: Man it ticks me off to think I paid $xxx a year ago from B.J's, and it only worked for a month!
  • Pros: It was the most affordable. Worked for all types of dvd's. Worked great... at first.
  • Cons: The first one of these I bought started having problems after four weeks, so I took it back and exchanged it for another one. The new one started having same problems after another month. In both cases, the DVD appears to be recording, but then it doesnt "finalize" or something, and therefore wil...

I HATE THIS THING!

Eliberto N., Newegg
9 March 2006
  • Summary: I ordered this after reading the product reviews on here and from my own knowledge of Lite-On's reputation with PC burners...but my experience with this recorder has been NOTHING but frustrating and disappointing. What's wrong with this thing? Does it just not like +R media? Does -R work better?
  • Pros: Price...supposed reputation, supposed universal compatibility
  • Cons: Doesn't live up to its reputation, doesn't live up to its universal compatibility! This thing works when it wants to, and it wants to work less and less with each passing day! First of all, why can't this recorder playback disk that it just recorded and finalized? It'll playback fine until you ej...

Defective

Nikolaus D., Newegg
8 January 2006
  • Summary: No more available sadly. Might be willing to try it again if I could find one
  • Pros: Looks nice, and bought it because of all the good reviews
  • Cons: Out of the box, it powered up but that was it; no display on screen, FAIL message on indicator. Wouldn't eject or do anything. Went through all directions, talking to manufacturer... determined it was defective

User Review

Michael C., Newegg
2 January 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this product as a Christmas present; the unit was not used until recently. The record part worked well and short play back worked, but when we tied to play a new release DVD movie (another Christmas present) playback would get choppy and start stopping after 5-10 minutes.
  • Pros: Records well.
  • Cons: does not do playback with out locking up.

DOA

Alexander K., Newegg
1 January 2006
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: Reading reviews always helped in the past to make a right decision in purchasing products from Newegg.com Unfortunately, this time it didn’t work. I ordered this model and received it via UPS 3 day shipping. An hour later I was on the phone with Lite-On tech support. My DVD recorder was able to d...
