4 out of 5 eggsGot it for cheap, works perfectly

Pros: Was looking for a Blu-ray player/burner for the longest time and decided to give this one a try and I am glad I did. I have no problems with it and it works perfectly.

Cons: Wish the speed was a bit faster but I won't complain for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

Pros: I haven't really used the burner much, except to burn a few CD / DVD's and install some software, and I've had zero problems for over a year. Nothing to complain about, works flawlessly so far.

Cons: None yet

1 out of 5 eggsGood, but failed a bit too early

Pros: Good drive while it works.

Cons: Won't read Blu-rays after eight months, DVD functions work fine. Since the price premium is for the Blu-ray ability I feel like I've been ripped off. As most of my collection is DVDs I haven't used the Blu-ray functionality. In total I've read less than 10 Blu-ray disk on this drive.

Other Thoughts: I'll put this drive on the shelf since the DVD/CD functions seem to work fine, but am very disappointed that I paid extra for a feature that doesn't work.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great for a week...

Pros: Did what it was supposed to do for a week.

Cons: Went to rip an audio CD, and I heard loud grinding. The CD itself was fine, so I surmise the gears in the drive itself were mashing together. Would make grinding noise, even when it spun up at system boot with no disc or when your closed the drive empty and it spun. Sent back for RMA (still in process), and purchased a different product. The included software wouldn't do several of the functions without you going to Cyberlink's website and buying an upgrade.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I got a bad drive. It happens. But do not buy this because it has software with it. It is not worth it, in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsDrive works

Pros: Drive works as advertised
Great customer service

Cons: May run warm in some computer cases

Other Thoughts: My original review on 01-26-12 gave the drive a 1. I figured out the problem wasn't the drive but my case ventilation. First drive I got would randomly fail when burning a disk. Great help from LiteOn troubleshooting the problem, but couldn't come up with why the failures. RMA'd the drive and second drive did the same thing. RMA'd that one also. Still had same problems with random failures while buring. Then I noticed the disks were coming out pretty hot. Moved the drive to a lower bay and put a loose fan on top of it to help circulate the air works fine now. Not enough ventilation in the stock HP case I had put this drive in.

Pros: Easy to install, good software suite, plug n' play in Win7, error free so far when burning.

Cons: Could have faster write times but for the priced paid, very good performance.

Cyberlink Suite could be better, specially to burn media and create DVD menus and such.

Other Thoughts: Have not tried Lightscribe or 3D function yet (will never probably use 3D anyways).
