keep looking

Joseph R., Newegg
20 November 2006
  • Pros: inexpensive
  • Cons: my unit was very unreliable. stopped reading discs and sometimes would fail to finalize after recording, rendering the recording useless. all this with a variety of discs, but usually used Taiyo Yudens. sent in for repair once within warranty, but the problems came back again.

  • Pros: Second set, first recorder no problem, why I went with another
  • Cons: Bought Sep 17, set up Nov 1, won't read any disc, prerecorded or blank, shouldn't have bought a birthday present so early since it carries only 30 days from Newegg

worked great for the 1st year

Daniel L., Newegg
18 September 2006
  • Summary: Even though it's a great price, you'll be buying a new recorder in about a year if they're all alike.
  • Pros: Worked great for a while.
  • Cons: After about a year, it no longer will prepare a blank DVD for burning. It just spins it indefinitely until I get the 'invalid disk' error. I've also tried several different brands and still no luck.

Liteon LVW5005

m s., Newegg
2 July 2006
  • Summary: Perhaps what it needs is indeed a firmware update, but the LVW5005 will not even accept that! the update disk was done on three different media, and three different cd/dvd writers... all to no avail.
  • Pros: I have traditionally sworn by Liteon products..Now i am not so sure..I bought the Liteon 5005 at Newegg about 6 months ago..it worked fine with any media i threw at it...for 3 weeks now, its become troublesome. It tells me most ALL the new media , TDK, Ritek, Fuji, others, are bad disks, and that...
  • Cons: After all, it DID work for the first few months i had it...now???

Unreliable product

Annette H., Newegg
23 May 2006
  • Summary: I bought this product because it received mostly good reviews. I'm afraid to say I've had nothing but problems with this recorder. I bought 3 different types of DVDs (I took the list of recommended DVDs to the store to make sure I buy the right ones) and had problems with all of them.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: The recorder very noisy and very slow to load or stopp.

Not sold as advertised

Thomas T., Newegg
6 February 2006
  • Pros: Did a great job transferring from Hi8 to DVD. Easy to use.
  • Cons: Lite On tech support says they have a memo out that states there are problems with the 6 hour record format and not to use this unit if you want any kind of quality with 6 hour recording. There are bugs that they have not been able to work out yet. I did not know this when I purchased the unit. T...

  • Summary: After three weeks, this unit would no longer record. Then the stop button would no longer work on the unit or remote. I was fairly happy with this recorder until it started having problems.

  • Pros: Lee muchos formato
  • Cons: Casi todo
