4 out of 5 eggslite install

Pros: Works very well, installation is very easy. I replace the old defictive drive of a HP laptop Pesario V 2200
Now it can burn DVD's and double layer too

Cons: Some what noisy when spinning the CD other than that its good

Other Thoughts: any one can replace a dvd drive as long as you have the comom sense and practical ability. Just read the instruction manual.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't Ask for More

Pros: Perfect fit for Dell Inspiron E1505; System recognized immediately; Perfect burning so far

Cons: Slightly smaller face-plate, if you can call that a con; price somewhat high

Other Thoughts: Slid the dead drive out and slid the Lite-On in, no mods necessary. I did switch out the face-plates as the Lite-On was slightly smaller. WinXP Media Center recognized immediately and it burns great. I had forgotten what it is like to be able to burn without my whole system slowing to a crawl! The only con I find is actually my husband's gripe about the product: he says he could have gotten a Dell OEM for half the price on that auction site any day. Personally, I would NEVER by comp parts on that auction site, and do I REALLY want a Dell OEM drive, since it was a Dell OEM that died in the first place?

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Great drive, read other thoughts. This is a great replacement for the old cd-rw/dvd combos. Which it replaced in a laptop that i just sold.

Cons: Loud, but ive never had a quiet lite-on. However if it is a true lite-on it will last

Other Thoughts: Made by phillips/ben-q, ive never really used these drives but every liteon ive owned had lite-on written on it, this however has only the phillips/ben-q names on it.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the most dependable

Pros: Bought this for stock and wound up using it in my MSI GX710-400A laptop...... the stock "Sony NEC Optiarc" dvd burner crapped out in less than a week in this laptop. I have yet to see a decent Sony CD/DVD.... in over 15 years I have never found a dependable one. Never had a problem with Lite-On, other than wearing them out from use.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The faceplate from "Sony NEC Optiarc" fits this Lite-On drive.. A MUST REQUIREMENT FOR LAPTOP REPLACEMENTS!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Good

Pros: Burns Dual layer dvds; quiet.

Cons: Only burns 6x DVD-DL, otherwise none thus far.

Other Thoughts: Replaced an H.L GSA T10N with this one. The previous one would not play DVD+Rs or dual layer movie dvds.
This one does.

Would have bought the sata version which burns 8x DLs, but my laptop only has an IDE port for the DVD.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm...

Pros: Worked immediately. Drivers not needed, at least in XP. Not noisy, solid construction.

Cons: None applicable.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a friend's broken burner in her laptop. Swapped out the faceplate and the drive installed perfectly. Since it was OEM, no drivers included but none needed. Only remote gripe is that it shows as a "DVD-RAM" (instead of "DVD-RW") drive in Explorer due to default Microsoft driver being used. "No drivers are necessary or have been installed for this device." What are you gonna do?
