Summary: wish they had a blue led light instead of green, green is so old school.
Pros: Works just great New Egg has been great been shipping me things that just work thanks. Nice build quality and very sturdy for such a small drive. They didn't use a plastic see through covering on the botton to conceal the moving parts like on some other slim drives.
Summary: To be able to burn DVD-ROM you will need to download the lite-on utility that will set the book-type for DVD+R and DVD+R DL to DVD-ROM. But once you save the book-type setting it will be set and work.
Pros: Installed in HP DV4 and NV52 and works and burn DVD-ROM. Would recommend for those looking for a inexpensive replacement DVD drive. Quiet and easy to install if your willing to take time to replace the factory face plate with your laptop factory face plate for proper fit.
Cons: To install in different you will have to remove the factory face plate and place your laptop face plate to fit but once you do that it works like a charm. To previous buyer it would seem to be more hardware incompatibility and not fault of drive itself. Rather they should've bought a desktop unit...
Pros: Installed this DVD drive connected to an ASUS FIA74 Deluxe Motherboard. Loaded Windows 7 DVD fine. When I tried to install the drivers from the ASUS DVD, the system ejected the DVD. Tried several times, rebooted PC no cure. Placed DVD on two other computers no problem. Had to copy drivers to a US...
Summary: After enquiries to see if I was ordering the correct replacement drive I was unhappy that it just would not fit properly. In honesty I must bear some of the blame. The drive was a bit tinny and the tray was a little on the weak but considering the price I suppose it was OK.
Summary: No instructions available but it was very straight forward. I hope people shouldnt have trouble either for a quick faulty replacement drive. Drive runs better with Nero (software not provided as i understand it is an OEM)
