"Won't Burn Movies on DVD+RW Media"

CNET
15 December 2004
  • Pros: Burns movies OK on DVD+R
  • Cons: Big problems burning movies which will play on a Sony DVD player. I use quality Memorex DVD+RW media and have had no problems burning the exact same movies using another DVD+RW drive in the same computer. The movie plays but stutters and pauses many tim

"Wasted 5 DVD-R's, had to return it"

CNET
1 September 2004
  • Pros: Simple to Install.
  • Cons: Mine (from Newegg) is apparently broken. Burns CD's ok, but just destroys DVD-R's, then a message appears saying "illegal media". There is nothing in the documention to help me with this. It includes so many different Nero applications-- a lot of funct

"Nice DL Drive for the Price"

CNET
14 July 2004
  • Pros: I have had Lite-On 832 for about three weeks now without any problems. I purchased this drive from New Egg for less than $100 and shipping was free. This is less than half the price of the Sony DRU-700A for a comparable drive and software package. Insta
  • Cons: Burning a DL disc is slow, and the media is hard to find and expensive at this time. I paid $15 for a blank disc. But had to see how the drive performed. The drive I received had VS01 firmware loaded. This created a slight anomaly, I could not play mu

  • Excerpt: "...My eye lit on the Liteon SOHW-832S USB DVD r/rw drive. (Pun intended) Well DVD thingies are getting far more common these days and I did not have one. I have the usual CD drive and CD R/RW drives already. I wasn't feeling like a rebuild as I am getting lazy. As this was a USB thingy I thought that I might get it. Cost was £95. Now I do not know if this is expensive for these things or not. But the box did say it would take dual layer and I had ...

Mi experiencia

Ciao
13 October 2007
  • Excerpt: En cuanto a precio es super accesible y te trae todo para poder usarla (cable plano) Cuando me la commpre me la ofrecieron en negro mate o blanco, me gusto mas el negro iva con mi gabinete. Por su precio y caracteristicas, graba lo indispensable (CD, DVD) y es muy economica. Ah y tambien es muy silenciosa ala hora de grabar. Eh notado a muchas que cuando graban es como si arranca un auto je.
  • Pros: Calidad y Precio
  • Cons: ninguna

Un graveur hors pair,compagnon fidèle

pkill52457, Ciao
6 January 2006
  • Summary: Acheté maintenant il y a plus d'un an, et ayant graver des centaines de DVD et de CD, il est l'heure de faire les bilans. Pour une modique somme déja à l'époque j'avais donc etait séduit par son prix. Supportant les DVD (+/-)R, DVD RW, et le support des dvd double couche, ce graveur est un petit bijou. Associé avec Néro, il est deja capablede graver des CD en 99 Minutes sur des supports appropriés bien sur.
  • Pros: Prix, fiabilité, gravure en surcapacité et double couche, gravure bit a bit
  • Cons: Aucun

Nichts für Dauerbrenner !!

Piter2005, Ciao
12 November 2005
  • Summary: Dieser Brenner ist der erste von Lite-On, der auch DVD-Dual-Layer brennen kann. Was ich auf Anhieb gut fand war der günstige Peis (99,95 Euro). Nachteil ist, das der Brenner eine IDE-Schnittstelle hat und keine SATA-Schnittstelle hat. Aber ein SATA-Adapter-Kabel verbessert gleichmal den Daten-Durchsatz. Ich habe mir eine DVD-R9 (7,9 GByte) gekauft. Ich habe sie gleich mal getestet und habe mir eine Sicherheitskopie von einem Film mit allen Zusatz-Features gebrannt.
  • Pros: Flottes Brennen, kann viele Formate lesen und schreiben
  • Cons: geringe Schreibgeschwindigkeit bei DVD - DL's
