Works Good

Trevor M., Newegg

  • 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.
  • Cons: none.

Lite On user

  • 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...

Misfit

  • 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)
