Lite-On SHW-16H5S DVD Burner Review

Good to know Lite-On is back to their winning ways.

I just posted the article Lite-On SHW-16H5S DVD Burner Review.

Lite-On It B.V. was kind enough to send us their latest DVD Burner, the SHW-16H5S for review, and we will be putting the SHW-16H5S through its paces in this review.

The Lite-On SHW-16H5S supports 16x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW and 8x/4x DVD+R DL/DVD-R DL writing technology, allowing Double/Dual Layer discs of 8.GB to be written. The Lite-On SHW-16H5S also supports LightScribe label writing technology.

Ugh. I still can’t find one in the US. Any ideas when they’re coming this way? I’d really like to get one!

Essential tool for disc quality scans and more. I use this with both my LiteOn (K-Probe is an alternative for the LiteOn’s) and BenQ drives for TRT tests and quality scanning of CD-R and DVD media. :slight_smile: :X

newegg has them, got mine in nov/dec for $35 from them

CD-DVD Speed - A user guide

I purchased the above product in December 2006. I have used it only once or twice as it was causing seizure of the computer after the cd had been burnt. I only recently was able to burn CDs without problems when the Nero 6.5 software bundled with the product that was conflicting with the Roxio software bundled with XP Wizard was removed. I now find that it will only recognize CDs and will/can-not burn DVDs. Has any one experienced this problem? Any solution?

@Kawahn: It’s probably a driver issue I guess, or it’s most likely not the correct drive… ---------------------------- Does anyone knows how the Verbatim -R’s do on this drive?
