Pros: Standard DVD burner, my pc MB 775 gave out so i replaced it with a new one. My old MB had IDE connects, the new one did not as everything is SATA now a days. No problem, been meaning to upgrade anyways just figured if it ain't broke then don't fix. besides at the time i bought the IDE burner it was almost $30. This LG SATA was $20. faster reading speeds and cheaper to boot. can't complain.
Cons: The burner it replaced, the IDE, was an LG that came with software to operate the DVD functions. At that time they provided software even though it was just the bare bones as this one is (OEM Retail) it used Nero software and the DVD used CyberLink DVD suite. If you're doing a new build you're on your own unless you own previous software
Other Thoughts: only reason i bought this was cause my MB gave out which forced me to buy a new one which made IDE connects obsolete. I had to ditch my DDR2 memory, upgrade to new HDD and CD/DVD drivers lol, oh well its been a solid piece of equipment. I've used LG DVD SATA burners on other builds for my father and sister and they haven't had any problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LITE-ON Combo 16X DVD-ROM 52X CD-R 32X CD-RW 52X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DH-52C2S-04
Pros: Had to return original Light On burner but NewEgg standard warranty saved the day and customer service took care of it with no problem. Aside from that, you can't go wrong with SATA. Does everything right and quickly. Never had a problem with Lite On products
Cons: noticed that NewEgg did away with their standard warranty for most of the stuff that use to be carried under it and replaced it with a 30 day limited warranty. Such a shame, makes me think twice on what I should buy from now on. the warranty gave me peace of mind and reassurance, especially when 2 of my cd/dvd drivers arrived D.O.A and NewEgg replaced them with their 1 year warranty.READ FULL REVIEW
