This drive is a superb replacement for my 2 year old 16x Plexy (still working though ).
The speed is great, however I have a few questions:
Is it wise to use this as my "main" drive, eg I'll be installing software/games etc with it as well as using it as my main burner? I'm just slightly concerned about the life expectancy of the drive if I use it as the main drive for everything.
I noticed that it seems to run at full speed when reading a CD, is there any way to possibly tone-down the read speed a notch or two? (this is my first drive that's faster than 40x, and it definately feels like it) I'm just worried about putting in an older cd and having it explode or something.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. I think I'm going to really like my first Liteon drive
I've already managed to update the firmware and also remove the region protection (not tested yet)
The only bad thing I can say about the drive so far is that the tray is a little bit flimsy. That's even compared to the crappy 12x Creative DVD drive it's replaced in my tower.
