This CD-RW drive from Lite-On features read and write speeds of 52X, and reads DVD-ROM at 16X. The drive uses Smart-Burn technology, which automatically varies the drive speed according to the media in use, and checks the quality of the finished media, so you get working copies, not coasters. Playback is just as reliable with Smart-X high-performance DAE, VCD, and DVD data extraction ensuring smooth, stable playback.

The unit's Auto Balance Spindle (ABS) reduces vibration during recording and reading, which gives you quiet operation, in addition to protecting your data and drive from vibration damage. The drive connects via IDE, and supports Windows 2000, ME, XP and Vista. You'll appreciate the insanely fast performance of this smart combo drive.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked 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 it to have died in a couple years means it only had ~500 hours of use.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Loud

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggs

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.
I e-mailed NewEgg about the issues (the drive not burning at 52X like the model is supposed to, plus only 1.5mb of cache) and they said that they would give me a refund and I don't even have to send it back. Although a mistake was made, NewEgg did a great job remedying the situation. I give them a thumbs up with that, but the product itself a thumbs down.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price.

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.

Other Thoughts: definitely adequate for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Easy install in Win XP Media Center SP3. MS had the drivers onboard for this one, and it worked perfectly right out of the box.

Cons: If your using this in an eMachines Case the mounting screw holes in drive do not line up at all. You will have to elongate the case slot with a nibbler tool or dremel wheel.

Other Thoughts: You can't beat the price for a combo drive and it came with Nero7 Essentials too. Even during the Christmas rush and bad East Coast weather the EGG and UPS delivered ontime. Way to go NEWEGG!
