The Liteon DH-20A3P uses MT1858L chipset and does not support jitter test
with Nero CD-DVD Speed.

Looks like a good 20X burner. Can you tell us anything about the drive, 2601?
Thanks- Steve


#3

With the PIE/PIF test at 8x it seems a better reader than LH-20A1P.


#4

Is it noisy like the LH-20A1x series?


#5

Good question, I want to know that too!


#6

It’s still noisy, I can’t find any difference between these two series drives.

Thanks for the scans 2601. :flower: Finally a sub 5 minute burn from a LiteOn.

By any chance have you done an 8x and 12x burn. I’m wondering if 8x and 12x uses P-CAV.


#14

is there difference between the 4x scan and the 8x scan on this drive??


#15

Only supports slow 8x(P-CAV) and 12x(CAV) burn speed . :a

#17

is it sata?

is it still ugly and cheap looking? loose tray?


#18

Thanks for the info. :flower:

At this rate, the next model will use CAV for 8x. :rolleyes: These drives are just becoming plain boring. And what’s happened to “LITE-ON” in the drive ID. Is this the beginning of the end for LiteOn. Will it soon become PBDS…


#19

At least it is the first time that firmware for the OEM ‘DH’ drives is available on the liteon site. The ATAPI DVD A DH16A1L was sold by HP before, but the firmware was available from HP only. Hard to believe they kill the Liteon name from the drive id to cut down costs.


#20

I don’t think the ‘DH’ indicates that they are OEM drives anymore, going by this:
