4 out of 5 eggsNice - but no Vista support out of the box

Pros: It's a CD burner - and it plays DVDs. Does exactly what I was looking for.

Cons: Just a tad loud. Included software is not Vista compatible. And the support website is quite worthless. I managed to find an upgrade link for Nero from the support site on a different optical drive that I had purchased.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive Overall

Pros: Easy to setup and doesn't come with a ton of bundleware discs. Fast spin-up time and reads great. Burns CDs with decent speeds.

Cons: I've experienced a couple of full system lockups while reading discs since installing this drive; though it might not be the drive itself (see below). Unlike all other Lite-On drives I've purchases in the past, it didn't come with a blank disc.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned above, I've had some lockups, but further investigation leads me to believe that iTunes 7.0.2 doesn't like this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive for the cost

Pros: For the cost you can't go wrong. It just does the job.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't burn a lot, just use it as a drive for gaming. Going on about 9 months now, no problems

3 out of 5 eggsVery Noisy

Pros: Dependable, burns and reads all my CDS perfectly.

Cons: If it wasnt for the unbearable squealing the drive makes while it is actively being used I would probably give this product a 5.

Other Thoughts: Maybe it was just mine but reading other reviews on and off newegg it sounds like I am not the only one. I dont mind noise like a disc spinning but a screeching sound is different.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice drive, gets the job done.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Lite-On is a good alternative to brands like Sony and HP that cost upwards of twice the price.

I have bought over half a dozen of Lite-On products and have yet to have any issues with them.
