Lite-on?

#3
Sony thinks enough of them that they outsource all of there CD drives to Lite-on. It may say Sony on the box but it's a Lite-on inside.

Lite-On is pretty cool. Its not the best stuff but it just keeps on working, you wont loose out by picking up their stuff.

I thought Matsu****a made most of the stuff for Sony, especially the drives.

Anyway, I've always rated LiteOn highly for their quality and have always used their drives on my computers, with the exception of my most recent DVDRW which I got when PC World closed down.

just some advice go with nec, and kermit plz dont start to flame, because i just recently had bad experiance with 5 liteon dvd writers all firmware is up to date and not hacked, and i was using good imation media 8x, to burn about 300 copies of the yearbook dvd in school, at the end of the dvd on a lot of copies its screws up a lot as if it were really scratched when its not. never had this problem with the necs we used last year even though we used crapier media. nec all the way

I have a Pioneer Dual Layer burner and I love it, its fast and quiet. They have released a few firmware updates to fix some things, over all its a great drive.

Zeke, thanks, ROFLLMAO. "Don't buy Lite-on, buy a good brand like Sony." Hilarious. Scrape the label off your Sony and you'll find the Lite-on sticker underneath.

Ming - unless Sony changed who they were outsourcing to recently...
About 15 months ago Sony outsourced all their CD drives to Lite-on because they couldn't compete on cost. Probably still an old news post about it on CDfreaks.

LiteOn CDRW's are some of the best out there. However, their DVDRW's leave alot to be desired. Best to look at BenQ 1620, NEC 35xx or Pioneer 109

Yeah it's interesting that most people don't know that the majority of drives are just rebadged from a small number of actual drive makers.
