[QUOTE=Antodne;2148133]Sadly I have only had it since August 8th and no one seems to wanna do anything about it (Lite On) By the time I call them to get a replacement I would have paid for atleast 2 new drives :/…My main concern is really reliability and speed along with a wider format selection. Im not to picky but I would rather rely on you all who know what they are talking about and have had years of experience then trust an advetisement or a salesmen who just wants to sale me something. Thats how I got into this mess haha. Thank you very much Im will go now to check it out[/QUOTE]Unfortunately you can get a lemon from any company so there is no guarantee. The good news is that burners are cheap as dirt so you are not out a lot of money.
I was a Lite On fan for a while but I noticed that they were much noisier than some of my other drives and I had a couple fail myself so now I avoid the brand.
The NEC I bought is whisper quiet and has been good so far.
As I mentioned in the other thread, I’ve had great luck with Newegg.
Do you know if you need a P-ATA or S-ATA drive?
