It is also important to note that the LITEON REBATE offer is a real rip-off!

I have installed several of the 98's and they all work fine,The 07's and T07's all have made loud noises when starting the PC and when opening and closing the trays.

Mildly disappointed with this product, although LiteOn makes very good burners.

I'm not sure what that other reviewer is talking about. The included Nero does work, and will run the LabelTag. There was a LabelTag User guide included with mine that detailed exactly how to do it. The included Nero that defaults to launching is called "SmartStart Essentials" which does not do the labeltag, but if you start the included "Express Essentials" it works no problem!

I bought this drive to flash some, ahem *special*, firmware to it and needed the newer revision B drive. My unit says it was manufactured July 2011 and was the B revision. The firmware flashed without issue.

Solid buy - but if you just need a drive, buy a cheaper one without LabelTag.

**EDIT: So I've had a few hours to play around with the drive, especially focusing on the LabelTag, and I find that functionality to be a bit pointless. First of all, LabelTag only works with DVD+/-R's, it does NOT work with DL's at all. I primarily burn DL disc. Secondly, if you are burning a disc image you do not get the option to apply a LabelTag. Thirdly, burning a LabelTag requires actual data space (like ~500MB) off of an already limited single layer disc, I don't want to give up that space when I can just use a marker on the top of the disc like a regular person. Finally, burning a LabelTag label adds about 20 minutes to burn time. The data burn portion completes very quickly, but adding a labeltag take significantly longer than the data burn.

I ordered this item because the title indicated that it is a revision "B" drive. However, the drive I received is a revision "C" drive, made in July 2012. I'm sure the drive works great, but the title is very misleading.

I purchased this item because it said that it was a version "B" drive. The drive I received was a version "C". Not as advertised, beware.

This Drive installed easily in my HP desktop, but while reading or writing the LITEON Drive is VERY NOISY and sounds as if it's going to go into orbit! I suspect cheap drive belts and/or poor gears? I suppose it is possible they missed adding proper lubrication but I was not going to add it and now the noise issue is my problem. I also suspect the noise will only get worse with time.

It is also important to note that the LITEON REBATE offer is a real rip-off! After a very involved login and registration process I was FINALLY offered the chance to print my completed rebate form.

Two weeks later I received a email advising that LITEON has REJECTED my rebate claim because I did not fill out the form but they are SHOWING me my completed form WITH 2 register receipts, 2 bar codes and even a copy of my envelope!

I CLEARLY purchased their drive, submitted the proper receipts, bar codes and I included ALL of my rebate material well before the rebate offer expired.

I STILL don't have my rebate, but it's too much trouble to pull the drive and send it all back for a refund AND the receipt says, "NO REFUND IF THE BAR CODE IS MISSING FROM THE PACKAGE"!

I am so sorry I purchased this drive, but I will use it until the darned thing self-destructs inside. DO NOT purchase LITEON drive for quality, or if you prefer a quieter drive. The LITEON rebate offers are bogus and LITEON should be prosecuted for consumer fraud.

I only use it for my program burnermax so it does the job and i love that i finally got the right product even though the company i got it from i probably wouldn't buy from again it got here late and they couldn't verify anything about it so I luckily got the right version so I wont tell anyone else to get this from them but it was in the original box unopened so it was brand new i did like that.
