DOA

elizabeth h., Newegg
27 January 2012
  • Summary: first time ever got a bad part right out of the box from NE. Called Customer Service and they took care of it right away. <added one egg for that> will write another review when i get the replacement. This is the reason i come back, Great service and speedy help if i need it.
  • Pros: usually liteon makes good if a bit noise drives. the nose is the spin air so it does sound a touch like a vacuum. This is normal for all high rpm<fast> cd/dvd burners and is no louder then the avg of them all.
  • Cons: widows saw the drive but got the insert disk problem. The drive wouldnt see a disk and didnt spin up. so laser is dead or motor is.. DOA

Good Burner - Flakey Labeltag

onawahya J., Newegg
5 July 2011
  • Summary: Labeltag burning will almost always fail if the sata drive is configured on a sata port running in RAID or AHCI. To resolve this, set the specific port to IDE mode. In IDE mode I've had 4 out of 11 discs fail when using labeltag, as opposed to a 100% failure rate.
  • Pros: Drive burns at consistent speeds. Discs are reliable if not burned with labeltag. Decent price.
  • Cons: Labeltag feature is nearly worthless. When it works, it's great. So far however, the drive will frequently error out after it burns the data compilation and proceeds to burn the labeltag. Symptoms are the drive flashing green and nero express stuck at 2-3% complete for labeltag. Requires rebootin...

GREAT IDEA - POOR PROCESS

Mark J., Newegg
28 July 2010
  • Summary: TOO BAD. IT COULD HAVE BEEN GREAT. MAYBE NEXT TIME. :(
  • Pros: VERY FAST AND VERY QUIET IN MY OPINION. NICE PACKAGING AND COMES WITH NERO-9 ESSENTIALS "AND" A SATA CABLE FOR A NICE TOUCH.
  • Cons: LABEL TAG IS A GREAT IDEA BUT ACTUALLY USING IT IS A BIG DISSAPOINTMENT. WHY YOU ASK? WELL THERE ARE A FEW TROUBLING ISSUES, FIRST OF WHICH IS THAT LABEL-TAG IS PRACTICALLY UNREADABLE ON DVD AND IMPOSSIBLE ON CD. IT WRITES TAGS ON THE DATA SIDE OF THE DISC, SO WE COME TO THE SECOND ISSUE. IF YOU ...

  • Excerpt: Не рекомендую, лучше заплатить чуть больше, но взять бредовый СД-юк.
  • Pros: Не заметил. Ни чего особенного, как и все.
  • Cons: Плохо прописывает CD-RW и DVD-RW. Вне зависимости от производителя болванок. Иногда считает, что на новой CD-R болванке определяет 500мб, вместо 700. Пока не запустишь запись-сдирание к примеру RW болванок, не одумается. После этого, на той же самой болванке начинает видеть 700. Слишком задраны м...
