I've owned about 6 different DVD burners over the years and this one is the absolute best. LITE-ON offers an affordable price and a high quality product.
I decided to purchase this drive because of the success I have had with other products from LITE-ON. The main selling point for me was the Lightscribe Technology. After I finish making a DVD I can flip it over and burn a label right onto the disc!
I have never had a disc fail on me that has been burnt with this drive either. This was the other selling point for me. The reviews for this product were very good. I must say I have never owned a more reliable DVD burner in my life.
It's safe to say I will continue to purchase my disc drives from LITE-ON and I think you should consider them as well.
