if anyone is interested in this drive. retail version, free shipping as of 11.nov.2007 09:37 est.
even though im tempted ill hold off since technically i dont really “need” it as my current lite-on 1673S works perfect for all media i burned so far
but damn… 27.99 out the door sure is tempting
I got the DH-20A4P for $26.99 with free 3 day shipping last Wednesday for the Egg.
wow!!!, retail version burner at this price?? I guess DVD drives will remain in retail store for another 2 more years before HD-DVD or bluray take over
I am currently desktopless, but tempting to buy anything at the moment. My bad hobby of spending on items that I dont even use
Which one is better this or LH-20A1P-186 for $2 more?
The 20A3 is newer. There is a thread in the Liteon forum, with quite a bit of information. I own both, and I like the 20A3P a little better, but YMMV…

Thanks, my BenQ 1655 is giving out, looking for a PATA replacement.
check out the lite-on thread. i could be wrong, butt i think these burners are questionable dual layer burners.
They also don’t do jitter scanning.
Great price, I might pick one up for ripping only:iagree:

They will very shortly…
Hmmmm, inside info have you? Let us in on it LOL.
It’s not insider information. Wind has stated that the algorithms needed to enable jitter scanning in CD-DVD Speed have been given to Erik already.
Thanks KTL, I don’t get to read all the threads, very nice, I am eagerly awaiting this.
As per the scans thread, it looks like an excellent drive.
Newegg buyers generally give it great reviews, although one said he received a previously opened package
I see they’re selling a DH-20A4P, too. Regarding those who’ve already received their 20A3P - was it a completely sealed, new package, and is it like other Lite-On drives in that they have trouble reading and writing CD-r’s?
