Pros: It did what it was supposed to do for a while, then just stopped reading any media. I took it apart, cleaned everything, put it back together, and it worked fine for another 3 - 4 months. Now, we're back to not reading any media again.
Summary: When watching Blu-Ray movies my computer is fine for some parts but then all of a sudden it can no longer read them, even some times responds with a corrupt disk error. The disks are successfully tested in an actually player and are brand new.
Pros: -Reads every DVD/CD -Functions like a normal drive
Cons: -Does not properly read Blu-Rays -Disk writing can cause errors some times
Summary: for what i paid 90 now they have is for almost half the price.
Pros: shipping was fast, shipped in a box twice the size
Cons: does not provide drivers disk, can't get it to work tried it on two different boards. called newegg, and was told oh well. tried it in a new rebuild. Dos does not see it ether would love some help so I can finish my new HTPC
Summary: I've had this drive since late April last year and now it provides me with a lot of DVD coasters when I try to write DVDs. It used to write them OK, but now it gets about 1 out of 4 OK, the rest are coasters. It still reads DVDs without a problem.
Summary: I have two of these, bought 6 months apart, and from Day ONE, both the DVD and CD reading was errorriffic, and now they rarely read DVDs or CDs disks at all. They still read and write BluRay disks just fine, they write DVDs and CDs just fine, SOMETIMES verifying a disk works, sometimes not.
Pros: Reads and Writes BluRay disks
Cons: DVD and CD reading errors or fails to detect disk
This lasted for a year and a half of occasional use

Summary: You get what you pay for. The LITE ON stuff is inexpensive but then it doesn't last that long. On the upside, saving money up front allows you to replace it with the latest technology when it becomes available.
Pros: Wasn't too expensive, had nice specs and was light scribe capable.
Cons: Used this drive about 20 times in over two years...
