5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I haven't had any issues.

Cons: Nothing, really.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this. Just remember that it is a blu-ray READER.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Drive lasted exactly 1 year from purchase.

Cons: Failed to read blue-rays & then dvd's exactly 1 year from purchase. Never buying Lite-On again. Lst one did the same thing years ago. I figured I would take a chance on them again & hoped that they had gotten better. NOPE!!

1 out of 5 eggsTHIS DRIVE IS JUNK

Pros: It was relatively cheap.

Cons: I spent several days trying to get this drive to do anything. I have the full version of Nero....it crashed that. It wouldn't burn CD or DVDs. The supplied software wouldn't install...it wouldnt accept the supplied serial number. I tried various freeware software and they all crashed. Tech support from Nero and LiteOn sent me to the Microsoft FixIt site which was no help. They also gave me a very lengthy troubleshooting procedure. If it takes that much trouble to get it to work out of the box, it's junk. I don't have time for that.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it. I have had great luck with <other major> OEM drives. This model is a loser.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy a Different brand !!

Pros: It worked for a while, at times?

Cons: I HATE Liteon, I used to put them in my builds for customers for a couple of years, and they have a 75 percent FAILURE rate in the first Year. I can estimate prob at least installing 65-75 in that time frame/
I only use LG, Asus, or Samsung now. Hardly ANY issues, with those brands!
THE ONLY reason I bought this, is I wanted to get into Blueray at the time, and 49 bucks Seemed like a Bargain. Since the others were almost double that.
But same ole liteon quality, just with a more expenive price tag. Stopped reading BLURay. I only have watched maybe 7-8 Blueraymovies the last year on this player and now NOTHING. It reads DVD, and CD's fine, But I would of spent 17 bucks if thats the kid of player I wanted.
Stay away from Liteon, this drive was 10 months old.
I use Cyberlink 11, and am happy with it.

Other Thoughts: I even did a expert job of cleaning the lens, but nope. Sigh
Last firmware update was 12/10, so that shows ya how much they really support thier new product line.
One thing you can rely on liteon for, is knowing your renting a DVD Device for a few months, then shopping for a replacment,

1 out of 5 eggsCD/DVD stopped working before 1 year

Pros: Did it's job when I first got it.

Cons: Broke within 1 year. It can still play blu-ray, but cannot play CDs or DVDs. I had thought it was just a driver issue and that an update at some point might fix it so I procrastinated. Turns out it's something mechanical inside not working and now it is 6 months after the 1 year warranty. Lite-on support has tried to help me troubleshoot, but they will not do anything to replace or repair it. Needless to say I am extremely dissapointed in the product.

1 out of 5 eggsToo bad

Pros: FAST, quiet, cheap, runs just about every format there is.

Cons: Well, for me it broke after about 80-100 rips with EAC (no, I wasn't using "paranoid mode"). So...that's not OK.

Other Thoughts: Well, I will be fair about this. IF the drive works, it's awesome. Easily the fastest and quietest I've ever had. So, I would just say look at the number of 1-egg vs. 5-egg reviews and decide for yourself. I got mine on sale really cheap, so I don't feel bad about it.

4 out of 5 eggsEh..

Pros: This isnt a bad blu-ray drive. Plays and burns DVDs and CDs no problem, fast and quietly. Plays blu-rays as fast as it says it does with not perfect, but still great quality (watching on 27" Asus vk278q).

Cons: THE SOFTWARE IS BAD! The CyberLink8 that it comes with is horrible. First blu-ray i threw at it was Avatar. Wouldnt play even after firmware updates. Downloaded the free trial of Cyberlink10 and played Avatar fine. 2012, Avatar and a few others will not play on CyberLink PowerDvD8, played everything else great tho. Other than the bad software this is a pretty decent blu-ray drive.

Other Thoughts: **In a few forums I read about CyberLink Power DVD8, i found that if you hit the 'X' button to close out, bugs out the software and could hinder you watching some titles, really stupid - but heads up.**
I think Lite-On should be held up to a bit higher standards then giving us outdated software that wont play some of the visually fancier titles, forcing us to pay CyberLink money for the newer software. Disney's Oceans and Discovery's Life and Planet Earth look FANTASTIC on blu-ray

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive, awful software.

Pros: Reads and plays Blu Rays.

Burns DVDs and CDs.

Lightscribe.

Good price.

Cons: Software is horrendous. With latest firmware, would not play a single BluRay from my collection. Kept giving "unsupported format" errors. Getting the newest version magically fixes this, for around 50$.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great. Software sucks

Pros: Drive works nice. Burns well too.

Cons: As everyone else states, the software sucks. But hey free software for blurays? yea right. PC was acting up with software installed. Just took it off and its fine.
