Summary: My original review on 01-26-12 gave the drive a 1. I figured out the problem wasn't the drive but my case ventilation. First drive I got would randomly fail when burning a disk. Great help from LiteOn troubleshooting the problem, but couldn't come up with why the failures.
Pros: Drive works as advertised Great customer service

Summary: Have not tried Lightscribe or 3D function yet (will never probably use 3D anyways). Build: CASE: Thermaltake Level 10 GT (VN10001W2N) Black SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans-1x 200mm Colorshift MOBO: ASUS Maximus V FORMULA/THUNDERFX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0...
Pros: Easy to install, good software suite, plug n' play in Win7, error free so far when burning.
Cons: Could have faster write times but for the priced paid, very good performance. Cyberlink Suite could be better, specially to burn media and create DVD menus and such.
Summary: This unit came with the Cyberlink software and after using it a little while it is probably the simplest software I have ever used with regard to optical burners. This Liteon replaced an older Liteon and i noticed rips taking twice as long(30min instead of 15).
Pros: - Handles blu ray - Cyberlink software included - Cyberlink software has nice/easy user interface.
Cons: - For some media types, a little bit slower than the optical drive it replaced.
