This review is from: LITE-ON USB 2.0 External 24X DVD Writer Model eHAU424-08 LightScribe Support
Works on the Dell XPS 8300 PC without the semaphore time out issue that some USB burner USB bridges have with certain USB controllers on the motherboard of some PC's. Works under Windows 7 64 bit SP 1 with native drivers.
It has the same con as all LiteOn's I've ever used. On 8x DVD+RW discs, it does not immediately go to 8x when writing. It starts out capped at 4x, then increases to 6x, and finally to 8x. I had a 1 GB test image in ImgBurn with Ritek 8x DVD+RW and it didn't make it to 8x because not enough time had elapsed to reach 8x. There wasn't enough data to burn long enough to get to 8x.
My only real issue with the drive is how they designed it to be sitting on its side. You can only stand it on one side. So, if you need it face to the left, it won't because when it stands, it faces to the right. On my desktop, I had to place the drive on the far right. So, I have to reach around to put discs into the tray.
