I have this writer. It is a rebadged Lite-On which can be overclocked with a firmware upgrade to 48x12x48. It was a great burner as well as reader. It is capable of copying most any of the "copyable" protections out there.
I said was because it has now crapped out on me. It is less than a year old so I am contacting Sony to attempt a warranty repair. This of course will depend on the cost.
