Pros: None.

Cons: Stopped writing to Memorex Ritek BD-RE that it had been writing to before after only 3 months. Stopped writing to a Sony BD-RE after 5 writes. DVD+R DL does not burn right. Has skipping issues.

Other Thoughts: This drive swore me off of LiteOns after my previous experience with using LiteOn for years. My previous drive was a DVD burner that I had to send back to NewEgg for a replacement because it didn't write to good Verbatim DVD-R media correctly. Then, my next LiteOn was this piece of junk Blu-Ray burner that also didn't work right out of the box. Got an LG for my next Blu-Ray drive. It had limitations but was much better than this drive.

LG Electronics 14x SATA Blu-ray Internal Rewriter without Software, Black Model WH14NS40 - OEM

Pros: Writes to a wide variety of media at rated or higher speeds. 8x Verbatim DVD+R DL writes at 8x for a good deal of the time. 6x Verbatim BD-R write at about 10x. Writes to Memorex Ritek BD-RE without errors.

Cons: Does not write properly to rewritable DVD media. 8x Ridata DVD+RW will finish writing but the PS 3 often times doesn't detect they are inserted. Attempts to write to discs after this fail. DVD-RW requires full formatting in a LiteOn drive if they are written to with this LG drive if you want to use them again in a Panasonic DVD recorder.

Drive stopped writing to DVD+R DL media properly after a year and 2 months.

Other Thoughts: This drive was good for most use. It just can't properly handle rewritable DVD media. Unlike the LiteOn Blu-Ray drive it replaced, there were no skipping issues with DVD+R DL media.

Pros: No problem reading a data CD to an image file. No problem burning a 16x Verbatim DVD-R.

Cons: Does not write at 8x to 8x Verbatim DVD+R DL for a desired length of time. The first one I wrote mostly wrote at 6x with some 8x write time, but hardly worth noting. The write rate was all over the place, dropping to 4x, up to 6x, sometimes 8x, down to 0, up to 6, and ended at 4. Second Verbatim DVD+R DL only wrote at 4x the entire time.

Could not find any firmware anywhere online for this drive, so I can't test to see if a firmware update would help with these issues.

Other Thoughts: I've not tested this drive for rewritable media or Blu-Ray media but my test results on good Verbatim 8x DVD+R DL do not indicate this drive is worth purchasing. I'd just as soon go back to LG, which has its own problems. My LG Blu-Ray drive stopped writing DVD+R DL's correctly after a year and it never properly wrote to rewritable DVD media.
