5 out of 5 eggsThe First Lite-on with Lightscribe

Pros: I have owned this dvd-burner since newegg.com first got them in. This is the orginial lite-on dvd-burner with lighscribe and is still in my rig. I have been burning dvd and cd with it for over 2 years now.

Cons: none at all.

Other Thoughts: No loger the fastest dvd burner, but the quality is still there. Highly recommanded.

5 out of 5 eggsThis burner rocks!!!

Pros: Had this drive for over 6 months and its still kicking without a single problem. Burns and reads everything just fine.

Cons: Itunes interferes with nero, so if itunes was open, you will have to restart the computer before you can burn. Not sure what interferes on it, just know it does.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this drive to anyone. Its cheap, extremely reliable, quiet and very fast. I swear you could put a rock in this thing and it would try to read it.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It burns whatever you can throw at it, LightScribe is nice and crisp. Quiet.

Cons: I had to type something here.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your computer's not in PIO mode. Had a minor skipping issue with DVD playback because of that.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Lite-on makes a good value product that does what it says. I haven't had a burn fail yet and it's quiet.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Lightscribe is not that exciting.
This is my second Lite-on and both have been impressive. I would recommend them to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid drive, no failured burns

Pros: Very good value, I've used this drive and Verbatim DVD-R media and generic CD-Rs and not had a single failed burn in over 50 discs so far.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Lightscribe is more of a gimmicky feature, never used it so no comment on that.

4 out of 5 eggsFast and handy

Pros: Burns fast, quiet and works good.

Cons: The Nero Lightscribe software says this drive is not Lightscribe capable. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice. What's up with that? Disappointing.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Drive good Bundle

Pros: This drive is not as deep as most(lite-ons are mostly like that)
so its easier to hook up cables and
more room for a deep power supply or shallow case.Works very good this a great value with the bundle.

Cons: It's more white than a putty color my Nec 3550 is a putty color like my case

Other Thoughts: I love Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks On My Mac

Pros: Cheap price, works great in my Mac G4 tower. Gonna buy another one.

Cons: Lightscribe is pretty slow, and the contrast could be better. But this is a lightscribe problem ... nothing to do with the burner.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Burner

Pros: Good, fast burner. Light-scribe (don't really use that often, but it is cool).

Cons: Lightscribe is really slow. Probably a problem with the technology and not this burner. Took 5 mins to burn the CD, took 25 to burn the label at high-quality. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: I really like this burner. Burned a whole 50-pk spindle of 8x DVDs no problem. Wish I had bought the black one though, the color doesn't go with my case.
