I've owned the Lite-On LVW-5001 model for a few months and I am happy with it. However, the Video Out does not work anymore. S-Video and Component works fine, but the RCA Video out results in a black, wazy, dark picture. There is also no option to select composite out in the setup menu, only s-video, component. I'm not sure if it's always been like this.
Also -- I would like to buy another Lite-On model, but I see there are many now... the 5005, 5006, 5007, 5101... which model is worth it? I'd like to spend less than $250 and get a stable model (with a fan). LOL. I'm in the United States.
