For the Lite-on Experts!

Im thinking about upgrading my notebooks fixed dvd-rom with a combo drive. I’ve found a Lite-On XJ-SC241, but can’t seem to find much information on it. I did however find that its also branded under "Slimtype XJ-SC241 " and “JLMS XJ-SC241” Ive never heard of them and was wondering if this drive is truely a lite-on. Also if anyone else might have any information on this drive that would be great! I cant seem to find anything on the liteon web site. Also if you know anything about the drives performance that would be great as well! :slight_smile:

heres the info i have on your drive hope this helps
