Not so bad...


If you like the feature set, the price is good. Be prepared for sudden death though. Returns to Lite-on under warantee are about average in my opinion.

I own the earlier product the LVW-5005. After over a year of use I've pretty much wrung it out. All-Write is just that (except DVD-RAM). Put DVDs or CDs in it, and Video results. GREAT FEATURE, plug your turntable into it, and copy vinyl -> CD...

Quality. I'm on my 3rd Lite-on over all. Always liked the features, but long term reliability is iffy

Lite-On Hasn't Figured It Out Yet

User freindly interface which makes it easy to use even it its your first dive into DVD recording. User manual is fairly well written compared to many. Recording quality is good on SP (2 hrs)

Not going to win any design awards, this thing is pretty unstylish and boring looking. Also its a bit loud, you can certainly tell the difference when it is turned on versus turned off. This thing is media sensitive, although I had no issues using...

Sorry piece of crap


When I first purchased this machine, I thought it was the greatest thing since VCR'S. The machine worked flawlessly. I was able to record my TIVO contents to DVD to preserve them forever or for 3 months, which ever comes first.All the hype of ...

It would be a great machine if they could solve the drive failure.

Not worth the headaches and frustration. Worst experience I have ever had.
