Very cheap! This is both the Lite-On's biggest selling point and annoyance. I will no doubt only use this drive during inital setup and windows install. Beyond that I think I will have little use for it. That said it is useful to have the drive just in case. It is a little noisy during operation.

I have my case on its side and this drive sometimes makes vibration noise and/or will fail to burn. Turning the drive flat (case up) is fine.

It's a DVD writer. It works. What more do you want?

jtabb1256 10 points 12 months ago

Cheap and gets the job done (installing OS and very rare CD/DVD usage) Really loud while it is being used.

It does what it is supposed to and the anti-vibration technology helps reduce noise.

Lite-on, it's quality, it's a great budget drive.

I honestly don't have anything bad to say about this product. I've only used it once to watch a movie. I really only bought it to have it in case I needed it for something. It does the job.

6 year old drive at this point, but still working quite. After about 4 years, the door sometimes sticks when pressing eject, but a second press will open it right up. Outside of the door thing, this drive has been a champ for the occasions I need a drive (software installation, ripping CDs...)
