DVD Addict, Lite-On does support bitsetting out of the box, I think the only company that requires a hack is NEC. Plus what is the deal with NEC, what makes them so tuff? I know they have the mitsubishi connection(MCC) and LG has the hitachi connection.
Lite-on is an OEM manufacturer. of course pioneer is always great.
but please enlighten me, what is bad about lite-on. I thought they had a great reputation.
I know benq is great, but to me dvd fanboyism is like religion, every religion thinks they are the best, and it just so happens each religion is going to have a certain amount of people, someone will have to end up in it, and none are better then the others. (oh forget it) imagine someone came in here and said "I am a NEC fanboy, i want a second unit, should i get benq or pioneer"
Once again this unit is 58$ shipped and is RETAIL, retailers like walmart and circuit city sell this unit for 99$ and i know at least circuit city corporate pays more than that!
I am hoping one of the seniors (you know who you are) to chime in
also to the person who said I should just buy quality + media. you further convince me of the wonderful brainwashing phenonoma that is forums. there is no difference between + and - discs except their write strategies(or what ever you call it) before bitsetting i used an LG drive and ONLY R- discs made by prodisc, MCC, and TY. Once bitsetting came out that all changed. before bitsetting I would not even TOUCH a + disc, I laughed at the fools who fell for the marketing gimick of the word plus, being that R- was and still is DVD standard. anyways, I have prodisc R- with three diferent codes (including a MCC) and they all had problems. But dont ever say they are bad, their + discs give me less than 10 PIE and PIF.
I would love to know from those who 'realy' know, is lite-on crap, or an optical powerhouse
