Best Lite-on burner

What’s the best 20 x Lite-On DVD Burner?
My installer told me today that he’s installing a Lite-on 20 x dvd burner into my PC next monday.I took my PC to him this evening.

I not sure what model he’s installing?But,it was $49.99 I know that!

Oh,and while I’am at it.What blank disc work the best with lite-on?(CD & DVD)


better ask your dealer what he suggests…

You can’t go wrong with Taiyo Yuden DVD media.
I don’t have an opinion on CD media.

I don’t think there is much difference between the various Liteon
models. A1P vs A1H, IDE vs SATA, they all seem to give similar
results. Some Liteon LH-18 and LH-20 drives suffer from loud
mechanical resonances. My LH-20A1P is very quiet. My LH-18A1P
is quite noisy.

Taiyo Yuden CD-R work really well with Liteon drives. I get very
good results with Verbatim branded TY CD-R (Made in Japan).

These drives have good support for most types of good quality DVD
media. As others have said, Verbatim and TY are usually a safe
choice. Verbatim are generally easy to find and quite reliable.
IMHO, the best TY DVDs are 8x +R (YUDEN000 T02).

My choice for the absolute best DVD media for the Liteon LH-20
in order of preference:

1 Ridisc Xtreme 16x +R (RITEKP16) (Europe)
2 TDK 8x +R (YUDEN000 T02)
3 Verbatim 16x +R (MCC004)
4 Verbatim 16x -R (MCC 03RG20)
5 TDK +R 8x (CMC MAG E01)

I have some Prodisc R03 (dvd+r 8x) and their results on the LiteOn 20A1H are absolutely brilliant, even better than mcc004.
On my Px 760A, they only have that good results @4x (dunno why)
