[QUOTE=reptile;2473529]Thanks, looks like a good drive. Ordered one since my Liteon is having eject problems.[/QUOTE]
i not to long ago upgraded to this drive (for 32.49 from ebay as at that time newegg was sold out or costed more) and it was a massive upgrade from my old Liteon 1673S drive from 2005.
as the 7240S is noticeably quieter (even at high speeds as in 20x burn) and reads faster and writes faster WHILE still maintaining a quality burn to … plus, not that this matters, the drive itself is actually noticeably lighter in weight to)
bottom line… you have made a good choice as this is one of the most praised drives on CDFreaks (now MyCE) it seems. they even have a review of it on this site to if you want to read it.
p.s. i still use my Liteon 1673s drive as a disc quality scanner though… and the reason i was FORCED to buy a new burner is simply because my 1673S drive started having problems writing to Verbatim DVD+R DL media. but it still write single layer stuff fine @ 8x.
