Be Forewarned - Do not Buy
The HP 24X Multiformat DVD Burner Black SATA Model 1270i LightScribe that failed upon installing was replaced by their center CA. (After the Newegg 3 month time limit)
It doesn't work only as a ROM unit.
The original 1270i came up as a 1270d GH24 on both my xpprosp3 and win7 boxes. The replacement also showed to be a 1270d only the firmware was GH21.
The original came from Newegg.ca, which I have had a great experience with except of this one.
Bought two units. One for my brother in-law which is still working for now. Same story the "i" shows up as a "d" on his xpprosp3.
It cost me $18 to send the "bad" one back (original price $40 each) and now Newegg is selling them for $27 with no shipping. It would be cheaper to buy a "new one" and give it a try.
But I am not going too. This re branded Lite-On DVD R/W will not be in my box.
