Worked for a few years...

  • Pros: Did its job for a few years...
  • Cons: ...and now when you hit the button, the drive bay doesn't open. You have to use the paperclip emergency hole every time you want to open the drive up to insert a disc. It also takes forever to load and execute files on the disc and at times will failed completely. I rarely use this drive, so for ...

Very Loud

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: This is the first Lite-On product I've ever owned and I bought it because of reviews I had read. I'm going to stick with other brands I've used before from now on.
  • Pros: It works!
  • Cons: This is the second one of these that I got. The first one spun up like it was full of gravel and New Egg stood behind it and just sent me another one free of charge. I didn't even have to send the first one back. BUT, this one is also very loud and sometimes kind of gravely sounding.

  • Pros: Cheap priced Drive.
  • Cons: It is very loud when it is burning or writing a cd. And it is impossible to write iso's on a cd with this drive. it always gives me the error page. Tried several programs.

  • Summary: I would have picked the SATA version had I known that it only had 1.5mb cache. I burn a lot of CDs for my church, so I don't want to risk "buffer under-run error" with CDs paid for by the church, and I want a drive that reduces the time it takes me to burn those CDs.
  • Pros: -I've burned 7 CDs with it, and it burned them fairly quickly (faster than my old CD burner, a samsung sm352, 52X, which was getting worn out) -NewEgg is giving me a refund. -It was pretty cheap. -The Nero 7 software is pretty good (at least as good as the Nero 6 software)
  • Cons: -The drive only burns up to 48X! Using the same CDs I used with my old drive to burn 52X, it only burns up to 48X. The Nero tools installed says it only burns up to 48X. -The drive only has 1.5mb of cache/buffer memory. Newegg advertised (though they may be changing it) that it has 2 mb.

  • Pros: tray pops out fast, reads good, fits perfectly in my smaller case (micro atx cube case).
  • Cons: little loud when it's spinning but i don't use it constantly so that's not a problem.
