LiteOn's LH-20A1S DVD burner let you either watch DVD movies or record them. The ability to use all standard CD and DVD media formats lets you choose the media based on the task.

This multi-format DVD burner uses an SATA interface for high speed data transfer between it and the rest of the computer. This results in better quality burns and less pauses while watching movies.

With write speeds of up to 20X for writable DVD±R media and 48X for CD-R media this drive makes short work of any task you give it. SmartBurn technology avoids buffer underrun errors, automatically adjusting the writing strategy and running OPC to provide the clean burns and greatly reduce the number of wasted discs.

3 out of 5 eggsfailing tray mechanism

Pros: I have two and they still read and write fine to discs (2012-08) after > 2 yrs. of use.

Cons: Trays do not open as they used to, it seems that the mechanism has worn out now. My two LH-2A1S exhibit the very same problem: I almost always have to use a pin to push through the small aperture under the tray, inside, to be able to open it and use the units. Time to replace them! But I expected my LH-20A1S to last (much?) longer since I haven't particularly overused (or abused) them at all.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pretty basic item, reasonably small for a modern optical drive

Cons: Developed problems after about a year and a half, would either cause the system to hang during boot, or work for a while and then drop out of the drive list.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Lite-On makes fantastic DVD drives! This thing works with any media I throw at it, it's fast, and it runs smoothly without giving me any issues. I didn't see the need to pay $100+ for a Plextor when this does everything I need it to do, and does it flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Keep the firmware updated for media compatibility and such. Lite-On is usually good about releasing firmware upgrades from time to time.

Highly recommended!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked for a few months

Cons: Died after 3 months, will not power up

Other Thoughts: I have tried to RMA this unit to Liteon. All emails returned
undeliverable. Cannot telephone as "mailbox" is full. Do not buy Liteon products. They do not stand behind them, nor even respond to any email or telephone inquiry. This company is in trouble.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing is fr1ckin' awesome. It is FAST, FAST, FAST. If I need to copy my 3 Netflix dvd's so I can return them the same day, and only have a few minutes before the post office closes, it takes as little as 3-4 minutes per DVD, ripping at 9-11x, while my old TDK IDE dvd drive took 12-20 minutes ripping from 2-4x.

Cons: When burning, sometimes it freezes everything on the computer for about 5 seconds while it initializes. But once it gets going, it burns very fast and reliably! I'm not overly concerned about this, and I reiterate that I love this drive!

Other Thoughts: I love this thing, and I may pick up additional ones once they are back in stock as I'm in need of them.

5 out of 5 eggsGood price, good drive

Pros: I needed this because i needed a SATA drive for my new mobo. It has replaced my other two drives. This thing does it all, reads and writes cd, dvds. it's a great all-in-one.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: System specs: Biostar T770, Athlon 64 X2 4800+ (brisbane), 2 gigs GeIL 6400, PNY GeForce 8800 GT 512, Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS.
