Summary: I'm in the process of trying to get LiteOn to service the drive, but my initial email correspondence resulted in them telling me to return the drive to NewEgg, but obviously that's not going to work since it's beyond 30 days. Still waiting for them to reply with a means to send to LiteOn Service.
Pros: When the drive worked, it worked well.
Cons: The drive died just after 9 months. I only used the drive maybe twice before discovering that it ceased operating.
Summary: Win7 MCE and WMP won't play a pristine Princess Bride DVD. I get an MCE error. And paging errors (event 51) in the system event log. Playing the same disk on the same machine with the same software using a Plextor DVD-RW drive works fine. Tried upgrading the firmware and no change.
Pros: Compact drive depth
Cons: Windows Media Center and WMP on Win7 won't play some DVDs on this drive.
Pros: Installed easilly came with everything needed. Wasn't DOA.
Cons: Software that was bundled with the drive isn't the best. Im not sure if it's my moniter or the software but I cant seem to get any Blurays to play clear in PowerDVD they all are fuzzy (noise). I have a full 1080P HD 24" widescreen from Asus so I dont think its the moniter.
