Hi out there it,s been a bit quiet concerning Lite-on,s new 20x speed

Is it worth purchasing.

I've got mixed feelings about it. There's no denying its fast and it does produce decent results with some media but Lite-On still has some work to do.

After I purchased a LH-18A1H I think it´s better to stop buy a LiteOn again.

It´s very loud, it caused coasters, the good error-correction (of older LiteOn-drives) is non-existent

I still recommend Pioneer 111, it´s much better than most other drives

If you think the LH-18A1H is loud (and it is), you won't like their 20x writers. When writing at 20x, it sounds like a jet taking off.

I read many things about the 18x and 20x-drives from Liteon, so i´m also sure that i don´t try one.

What drives u already have, Dellboy?

The Liteon use MTK-chipset, similar to ur Samsung.

So if u have no Pioneer, i would recommend u the 111, very good writer
