2 out of 5 eggsWorked for 6 months

Pros: Worked perfectly for 6 months or about 100 dvdrs.

Cons: Died after those 6 months. Would give burn errors every time I tried to burn something and then started to trip the over/under/surge voltage protection on the PSU turning off the computer.

Other Thoughts: NEWEGG ROCKS!

Cons: None so far....

Other Thoughts: Lite on has earned my trust, which isn't easy to do when it comes to electronics. I personally have bought 4 Lite on Burners and am 100% satisfied with all of them.

Pros: Works fine out of the box. Runs fairly quite. No problems encountered.

Cons: The activity light stays solid when in use. Sometimes this can be misleading when you are not sure if a program is stalled out or not responding.

5 out of 5 eggsNice drive!

Pros: Quiet drive, much more so than my Lite-On CD burner!
Burns well. No problems yet.

Cons: Slow tray opening. It doesn't just zip right open, takes its time.

5 out of 5 eggsLite-on and Newegg Rule!

Pros: Lite-on makes high quality products that I have come to absolutely trust. This DVD/CD reader/writer has worked perfectly, as expected. Newegg lists it as OEM, but it includes excellent software, basic Nero version 6, and a sound cable, so you can hear CDs or DVDs on your computer. So what do you give up? It comes in bubble wrap instead of a box. Long ago I made the mistake of buying a CD R/W without a sound cable, and CxxxUSA wanted $20 for one. I had to get it from Newegg for $x, but shipping cost more than the cable.

Cons: Zero, zip nada.

Other Thoughts: Newegg got it to St. Louis in 3 days, packed securely. I have been buying from Newegg since 2001, and continue to be impressed with their service, quality, and commitment to customer satisfaction. It takes a super deal to make me buy any computer hardware or software elsewhere.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plays movies

Cons: Does not read MSDN subscription DVDs, even after firmware update.

Other Thoughts: Th DVDs are not defective and will play on my old Sony. I didn't even try burning after that. Very disappointing.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good price.Usually reads media okay.

Cons: Serious problems burning, even after the firmware update. Burns skips in CDs, and if it chooses to burn a DVD (which it does far more often after the firmware update) it burns skips in that too.

Other Thoughts: This thing is worthless. I'm getting an NEC burner
