4 out of 5 eggsWorks, and cheap

Pros: It does everything you want it to without complaining. It burns max speeds for the discs I use with no problems so far.

Cons: Little bit noisy, but for the price, that's expected.

Other Thoughts: I am sure a moder could rig up something to quiet this beast down, but for me it is quite bearable as I rarely use the DVD drive unless burning DVDs.

3 out of 5 eggsLoudest burner drive ever!

Pros: Works fine, Does everything it should.

Cons: The absolute loudest drive to ever exist. It is loud at all times, on bootup when it initializes, when you are ripping, burning, or just read a game disk in the drive it is irritatingly loud.

Other Thoughts: I built my whole system to be as quiet as possible. This drive ruins the whole quiet aspect of my PC. Soon to be replaced by a normal burner drive.

4 out of 5 eggsnumber 4

Pros: Well the cost is the big factor, and the fact that it is durable and reliable is another. I just bought two of these for my mom. I had already put two of them in my wife's computer. They work flawlessly.

Cons: They are a bit noisy compared to some other burners, but it isn't all the time. For the price what can you expect.

Other Thoughts: If you don't want something noisy spend the $100 for the 760A, but if you are on a budget these will work just fine for you.

2 out of 5 eggsnot a good burner

Pros: it spins

Cons: first one caused a dead short to my computer when trying to burn. second one it very loud and vibrates entire computer when spinning. Lite-on obviously lacks quality assurance.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy lite-on again. Samsung's are my choice now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat combo burner

Pros: burns CDs, DVDs, DL DVDs great replacement for my CD-RW burner.
only 1 bad DL disk out of 12 burned. Cheap for what it is. Also doesn't put a lot of pressure on your CPU, I actually did some gaming while burning.

Cons: Loud when first loading the disk, but don't let that fool you, it's quiet otherwise.

Other Thoughts: You need recent burning software to unlock the DVD DL burning capabilities. A minimum of Nero 7 for Nero users.
