5 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Get Any Better Than This

Pros: Shipped fast as usual. Newegg and FedEX are awesome! Have had this product for over 8 months without any problems occouring. Burns DVD's at top speed without poor recording quality.

Cons: None yet! This thing is sweet!

5 out of 5 eggsWhy pay more?

Comments: Why buy a $100+ drive when these work just as good? With Nero's software (which is also included)it has a built in "ultra buffer" that buffers up to 80mb. I have purchased 20 or so of these and none of them have had a problem, I can not say the same for the Plextor dives, 3 out of 4 had issues and were returned and one is going back for a second time.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Very piece for the money. After first updating the firmware, everything workes as advertised, with the exception of burning DVD-R's at only 4X. Probably a system problem, as I haven't even looked at the BIOS yet. Kudos to Newegg and Lite-On.

Comments: I"ve always had lite-on and there always making amazing products it's pretty much all i'll buy now. Havent had one problem with this burner and have had it for a month now not one bogus burn on a cd/dvd. Everyone should buy one of those and the price just can't be beat.
