Summary: When this drive first starts reading the disk, wow its loud... It calms down and starts using its indoor voice a little better once it does the initial read but the first 5-10 seconds, many you can tell that DVD drive is workin...
Pros: Good value - DVD Burner not just a reader - SATA connections
Summary: Again, Lite-On technical support was exceptional. I wish all technical support could be like theirs.
Pros: A decent drive at a decent price. I knocked an egg off because the drive that I received was slower than my old drive and the device buffer would not go above 91%. But Lite-On's excellent customer service allowed me to RMA my drive with only minor inconvenience. The replacement drive that I received has been fast and reliable.
Cons: Issues with drive but was taken care of by Lite-On (see pros section)
