I was thinking about getting the Liteon 1633s any advice on this drive beforei buy
Why would you buy a 1633, this drive is almost not supported anymore by liteon. The latest firmware is dated december 04. If you really want a liteon than get a 1673, or wait a little longer and get a 1693 !!!
What are your requirements for a DVD writer?In terms of DVD writing quality, there are much better options out there instead of the 1633S.
