from what i heard, lite-on used to be good back in the days of 52x cd-r burning, liteon offer drives with good performance and features at low cost, however it seems to be that those glory days are over, from what i’ve seen and heard, liteon drives nowadays aren’t as good as they used to be.
i’ve purchased a lite-on 1693s dvd+r drive, which was priced around the same as a older nec or pioneer dvd drives, i bought the 1693s since i thought it was a newer drive so it must have a better burning quality, sadly i was mistaken.
the drive burns at about avarge speed and quality, the drive itself is very picky at dvd mediums, even good brands like maxwell and tdk dvd+rs are turn into coasters or damaged unreadable disc during burn process dispite the fact that i have all the correct settings in nero piror to burning, the drives just refuses to successfully burn something.
what’s worst, it refuses to read some of my personal dvds and cds, the drive would make alot of clicking noises before poping the disc back out at a very very sad and disappointed user.
when i did manage to burn a disc successfully, the drive would sometimes read the disc when it feels like it, and when it doesn’t it’ll smack it back at your face if it feels like it.
the drive isn’t even half a year old, and it’s already malfunctioning, i heard from a forum that states lite-on has bad quality control, and that their drives tend to break and malfunction much faster than other brands, i don’t believe it first, but i guess i’ve seen it with my own eyes, well done liteon, well done
the burning quality is avarge, even older nec or pioneer dvd burners do a better job at burning, i personally don’t own either of the aove brands, but a friend of mine does, and he has no problems burning with different brands of dvd meduim, and with better burning quality too.
so why does everyone thinks lite on is a good brand, is it because they’re helping sony save faces since liteon is repackage as sony brands? or are they shining asses? i’ve never been so disappointed, with dvd burning technology reaching it’s highest production level pontential, it’s hard to find a drive that doesn’t do it’s job welll, exept for lite-on of course, which doesn’t do it’s job at all.

am i the lucky owner of a liteon drive? i sure am.
i sure am.
