I got this optical drive for a screaming deal at a local retailer, only $13 after rebate! I'm very happy with it, it came as the complete package! The box included installation screws, a SATA cable, documentation, and NERO 9 Essentials burner software. The drive was well packaged, and works great!

This drive feels better built and more durable than most I'm come across, and it's fairly quiet, even when reading or burning at high speeds. It comes covered with a standard one year warranty and includes quick installation instructions in English, French, and Spanish. The more detailed User Guide is in English only though.

Thus far I've used it with Windows 7 64-bit and Xubuntu Linux, both had suitable drivers by default and the drive works wonderfully with both operating systems. The box advertises support for Vista, XP, and Server 2003 as well.

About the only thing this drive is missing, possibly, is Lightscribe label making technology; I never use it on my drives that do support it though, so no big deal to me.

To sum it up, this is an excellent drive for a great value! It's the complete package and easy to setup.

This review is not so much about the Liteon drive as it is about how Amazon is selling it. Upon receiving the drive, I looked at the tamper seal and saw that there were 2 seals on the box, one on top of the other. Looking at the seals with a magnifying lens, I saw that the inner seal was broken. I immediately suspected that this drive was a return or refurb. I decided to give it a try anyway. My suspicions were true. The drive was defective since it would not mount any disc I inserted -- so I am returning it. This drive is advertised as being new but Amazon is shipping refurb/return units. Shame on you Amazon!

This drive was a snap to install in my Windows 7 machine. Slide it in, put in a couple of screws, connect the power and data cables and turn on the PC and you're up and running. Win 7 recognized the drive immediately. No magic, no mystery. Comes with the SATA power cable and Nero 8, too.

You can pay a lot more for a burner, but you can't beat the quality or speed of Liteon drives. This is my second Liteon drive, my first drive is over three years old and is still working great!

I recently finished my first computer build. Everything works fine, to my great relief. On August 1st I bought this drive because of favorable reviews here at Amazon.
I have no complaints against the drive, it seems first rate, but I do want to warn other consumers about the bundled Nero 9 software. It's monstrous.

To begin with, the installation on my machine (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit), was a mess. The first thing it did was to try (aggressively!), to install the infamous ASK? toolbar. This practice is reprehensible. Google does it, Micosoft's Bing, and Yahoo, as well. There's a lot of money in search-engines and they're tactics are becoming borderline criminal.
I can almost forgive Google since their search-engine is genuinely great. The others are garbage, with ASK? the worst of the lot.
Despite specifically (Un-Checking) the ASK? install box, Nero forced it onto my machine anyway.

Next, I was informed that my new complimentary software would not allow movie viewing beyond a 30-day trial period...UNLESS...
I was willing to cough up another $54, or so, for an upgrade. This is bait-and-switch. If it's not illegal, it's certainly sleezy.
I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and proceeded with the trial run. It then went to the Nero site and began...
...Are you ready?...a half-hour long, 180 Mb download of the software. (Then, what's on the installation disc?)

On top of all of this the program was unintuitive, confusing, and even has a butt-ugly interface. I couldn't remove it fast enough.
One favorable point, it un-installs very smoothly. Just two crashes, warning screens, and multiple automatic re-starts.
Thank God, I had the forsight to make a Restore Point for once. It saved my bacon.

The unit was packaged properly and once shipped was received undamaged.
Installed in new build as main DVD burner. Plugged in powered up with not a hitch.
Windows 7 runs this unit fine. No need to install Nero's enclosed software so fare 7's media center is functioning fine.

This drive does not have the LightScribe and though it's not mentioned in the description the picture shows one with the LightScribe logo on the left side. I purchased this one, the IHAS32408 on 3/24/10and IHAS424 on 3/20/11. I purchased this based on the picture and the price that was less than the other one and this came with free shipping, without having to meet a twenty five dollar requirement, so I never bothered to read what the description didn't say. Bottom line, as of 3/31/11, the picture shown is not of the item you'll receive so if you don't care about the LightScribe feature, and having to more for compatible blank media, then ignore the picture and make your purchase.

The one I purchased earlier would not work in my Dell 2400 with the IDE to SATA adapter I purchased on Amazon. My computer would not read it as a DVD, on a CD, and it would not spin up. Also, it caused havoc in my computer with applications and speed. Based on what I was trying to do, I would suggest that you not try putting a SATA DVD into an IDE because your system may not accept it. I returned this one to Amazon but can't tell you how good it is based on the one I purchased previously but it'll probably be 5 stars but reduced to 4 because the pic is wrong and misleading.
