Default Lite-On Drives

Welcome to the club.

I've been reading in this group for several weeks about the speed and
reliability of Lite-On drives. After 3 bad drives from Digital Research,

I
decided to give up the headaches and order a Lite-On from Newegg.com
(LTR52246S retail). I have to say, this drive is very cool. It cost me

$43
with free shipping and I had the drive within a week. I decided to get

the
drive from Newegg.com because I was tired of chasing the repackaged drives
(such as the recent Cendyne at OfficeMax), only to find out that either

they
were out of stock or the shipment they had were not the Lite-On drives.

Not
to mention that I've had nothing but trouble getting timely rebates (if I
get them at all).

The drive has Mt. Rainier support, Smart-Burn, Smart-X, and UDMA support.
Audio extraction is faster than any other drive I've used in the past,
including the $150+ drives. Burns usually take less than 3 minutes for an
80 minute CD (even on my pathetic 550MHz pc) and never an error even on
inexpensive Imation media. It seems to be rock solid and provides great
performance for the price.

I would definately recommend this drive to anyone.

- Glen

I'll second that recommendation. I bought the same model as you
from Newegg.com and I have absolutely no complaints.


Cool. I just ordered the LTR52327S and hope I will be as happy as you
guys are.

It is a poor day if one hasn't laughed.
