LiteOn DVD R/RW Thoughts

  Demora 01:09 31 Dec 2003

Anyone have any good/bad reports on LiteOne DVD R/RWs. PC world have an 8x -/+ drive which looks ok to me..... BUT I need input here as this would be a first dvd writer.

411S, it's the same as yours but 4x +/-.

£80 retail pack.

Is there really any point in a 8x just yet? stick with a 4x and you'll save yourself some money mate.

I can burn 4.5Gb of video footage in just over 5mins with my drive. not bad eh?

Lite-On products are excellent as well as good value for money.

Many of their drives are rebadged products from leading manufacturers, in the main Plextor.

Stuartli is spot on here re Liteone - - - - if its simply the name you are worried about, then worry not.

I had heard something about them in the summer and was really wondering from curiosity more than anything else.

I had a Mirai cd RW and its just starting to give me trouble after 3 years so am looking around at something good to replace it.

5 mins for 4.5gb with a 4x drive?

Somethings not right there, surely you mean 15 means?

Q-Bie - one more time and that'll be 15 minutes won't it ;-)

i'll do it again just to confirm...

i had a DVDR that came with my drive. i just copied them over.

will try again with another DVDR when i get some.

Well I finally took the plunge and bought the 8x Lite-On dvd R/RW as PC world were selling out of them (not just Lite-On) and I really had to replace the old cdr/rw. Fitted it in 15 mins and all set up.

Now to make rather expensive beer mats.

Thanks for the input and have a happy new year to all of you.
