Fastest DVD-ROM there is!

 

In my opion Lite-ON makes the best DVD-ROM drives there is. I own about 25 DVD Duplication towers and each one has a Lite-ON reader in them. It's for a reason: They're the best and most reliable DVD-ROMS!

This thing is so fast! With a 'special' firmware upgrade you can rip certain DVDs at 14,700KB/sec! I just got done ripping a 3.8gb DVD5 disc in 4 1/2 minutes. This is an upgrade from my old Lite-ON 167T and it's much faster than that drive

None at all

Poor Man's P**xtor

 

I've deployed many dozens of these drives and found them to be very consistent.

Solid, stable and quiet drive. This is a great ROM for the cash involved. These consistently perform better and last longer than certain other, bigger brands of similar or higher cost

Dust seal isn't perfect. If your chassis has a lot of negative airflow you'll want to dust your drive out fairly regularly

Good DVD drive

 

This was purchased for an older machine that didn't come with a DVD drive. Windows XP Pro detected it and installed it as soon as I booted after physically installing the drive. My only complaint with this drive is the noise level when a disc is...

Easy installation, flawless performance, CyberLink PowerDVD included on the install disc. Good basic DVD-ROM drive

It's a noisy little bugger when spinning at full speed

LITE-ON Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM ATAPI/E-IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model SOHD-16P9SV

 

Lite-On continues to supply great technology for low prices..

inexpensive, quiet, reliable

none. It's a DVD-ROM so we are not looking for too much here, right

Consumer review by:

Solid

 

I had to RMA the first one because it produced noise bursts with some audio CDs. Luck of the draw.. I'm still giving it 5 eggs. Some say it's noisy. I don't find that to be true at all. Any drive winding out at 48X is bound to produce a few db.

Great value. Easy installation. Decent construction. Short depth profile is great for mounting in a tight case

None
