Lite-On DH-20A3H 20x "Super AllWrite" DVD±RW/RAM

1 October 2008
  • Conclusion: It has been nearly ten months since we reviewed Lite-On's first 20x DVD writer, the LH-20A1H. Since then, manufacturers like LG and Samsung have raised the bar, introducing 20x DVD writers with new features and faster DVD±R DL writing speeds. Surprisingly, Lite-On hasn't risen to the challenge. While the DH-20A3H sports an updated chipset and chassis design, the drive doesn't offer a significant advantage over Lite-On's earlier 20x DVD writers.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 20x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Writes to DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media at 8x, Reads and writes DVD-RAM media at 12x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD±R media at 16x, Reads DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 12x, Features 48x CD-R and 32x CD-RW writing speeds, Good selection of writing and rewriting speeds, Low seek times, Supports SMART-BURN, SMART-X, ABS, SmartWrite and OverSpeed technologies,...
  • Cons: High media requirements when writing at 20x, Questionable writing quality with some DVD±R DL media, Slower than other drives when writing to DVD+RW and CD-RW media, Has a 2048KB buffer
