John N., Newegg
23 November 2012
  • Pros: Still works after almost 6 years of use. Lite-On seems to be a cut above a lot of other burners. Few, if any, coasters made over the years.

Anonymous, Newegg
13 February 2007
  • Summary: Excellent value for money.
  • Pros: Plug and play, XP recognizes it instantly, no installation. Included Nero software is simple and functional, works great, free software updates online.

Fast Reliable Burns

Warren W., Newegg
4 January 2007
  • Summary: Sometimes K3B does not eject media automatically after a burn. It's probably a timing problem with K3b and not a problem with the drive.
  • Pros: It's a screamer. I can burn an CD from ISO in 2min45sec flat. Works well with MacPro using both OSX and SimplyMEPIS.
  • Cons: None really. Sure, it would be nice if the box were slimmer, but then it would cost more.

Great price and Performance

miguel s., Newegg
29 December 2006
  • Summary: You can't beat the price for this external drive and now more with the rebate. It has been also very silent and performs every time. I can now burn a dvd in 15 mins with this unit. The problem is not the drive but with the software that comes with it.
  • Pros: Plug and play connection is easy w/ xp, fast burner, solid construction
  • Cons: nero software is complicated and blocks copyrighted dvds

Excellent

Daniel P., Newegg
10 November 2006
  • Summary: Internal verses external? Maybe because more care is given to buffering given the nature of USB.
  • Pros: Great deal. I was looking for a RELIABLE burn and I've found it. For some reason the external drive performs better than internal--not in terms of speed, but in ter drives in terms of RELIABILITY.
  • Cons: I am sorry I didn't order a spare.

Great Product

Paul A., Newegg
9 November 2006
  • Summary: Consider the price, why would you spend more? Lite-On has always been my first choice over other brands anyways. I am a casual DVD burner though.. maybe 3 a week at most. Usually data backups so can't speak for the type that burns tons of movies.
  • Pros: Burns everytime, no problem.
  • Cons: None to speak of.
