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

 

Never had a problem with a Lite-On DVD Player or Burner for PC, but their Home Entertainment units leave a lot to be desired in the defect department.

Functionality is nice. Especially the ability to burn basically any format including CD's, VCD, etc

I own two Lite-On DVD recorders. This one quit accepting cable signals about 2 weeks after the warranty expired, so I can no longer record from cable TV. The other was a LVW-5045 with the HDD. It died at about 9 months...the RMA took 3 months. Had to...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Worked great

 

I bought this recorder primarilly to copy VHS tapes and home movies to DVD. It worked great when VCR was hooked up via rear composite AV input jacks. Also worked great, when I recorded from an older camcorder which uses 8mm tapes using the front AV...

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.

Disaster

 

The tv listings display OK if you leave it turned off except to check.

One failure after another. No service or support. No value.

Going Optical

 

The other reviews are fairly comprehensive. I have just a few things to add. I bought the device a few weeks ago after being very disappointed with a $169 model from Wal-Mart. It was finicky about what brand of media it would accept, and difficult to ...

Ease of Use ; Media recording options ; DV-IN for duplicating video recordings

Manual is a little sketchy of advanced features
