4 out of 5 eggsOk so far

Pros: Fast, worked right out of the box. Good for its price.

Cons: Can get very loud at times, the plastic on the outside actually vibrates and makes it louder.

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2 of these, should have purchased one to see if I liked before getting two, so far its had no problems so I still recommend it.

4 out of 5 eggssolid sata but loud(er)

Pros: It's cheap. It works. It's SATA.

Cons: When it's high RPM, it sounds like a hairdryer (maybe 1/3 the volume though). Watching DVDs is low RPM, so it doesn't bother me.

Other Thoughts: When I'm reading/writing Data DVDs, who cares how loud it is? (Unless your computer is in the same room as your sleeping roommate...)

4 out of 5 eggsGood but...

Pros: Works Great. Lite-On is a brand you can trust.

Cons: Wow, this thing is LOUD. I've owned LITE-ON optical drives n the past, and never were any of them this loud.

Other Thoughts: The only reason this got 4 eggs is becuase of the noise level... I mean it really is loud, if I known that I might have gone for a different model

1 out of 5 eggsPoorly made drive

Pros: None..

Cons: I ordered 2 drives and both exhibited the same issue- after successfully burning a DVD in disc-at-once mode the drive would continue to blink and would not release the disc. I had to turn it off and back on. Skip this drive- not worth your time. Liteon support sent me a gibberish response when I questioned them on it- I'm sending mine back and ordering the NxC SATA drive.

5 out of 5 eggsSATA is great

Pros: All the advantages of a DVD burner at a low price and utilizes SATA. Not much else to say!

Cons: Doesn't have LightScribe if you need it. Arrow above eject button was slightly misaligned.

Other Thoughts: Running on an Abit IL9 Pro with an Intel 945P chipset, though I don't think the drive will have compatibility problems. Looks and works great with a Lite On IDE DVD-ROM.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive

Pros: This device worked from the beginning. The tray is extremely quiet. While it's loading something or ripping, the noise level goes up considerably but that doesn't bother me. Performs well above my IDE drive. I would recommend this to my friends.

Cons: Didn't come in Clear Neon Green with LEDs.

Other Thoughts: Newegg (with the help of UPS) got this drive to me a day ahead of schedule. It shipped from Cali to Virginia in 2 days. :) Thanks, newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Good Bang for the buck.

Cons: Louder than other optical drive in system.

Other Thoughts: I added to Dell Dimension E521 which only had a DVD/CDRW optical drive. This dell has no IDE connections, so I had to go with a SATA drive. This one fit the need.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: GREAT price. Love dual layer option. No compatability issues. works great!!!

Cons: It is loud. My computer runs quiet, until I read from this drive. Then it sounds like an airplane is taking off.

It is also a little slow on the initial read.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great drive. Lot of bang for your buck. I would buy this again. The noise isn't such a big issue, b/c after the initial install and the occasional disc-burning, I dont use the drive much, so I dont mind the noise.
