Liteon Tray color

Liteon Tray color

Do you think it would make any difference in the quality of my burned discs if I buy the black Liteon 52x burner or the Beige one (for the tray color)?

AFIK, only the Bezel colour changes in Liteon drives while tray remains beige. With certain models you get Beige, Black and Silver bezels as options. Of course I maybe wrong.

Regarding the Black Tray = better writing quality story, only Plextor seem to have this theory.

HTH.
Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty. - Richard Lovelace

Some guys in LG and Samsung also liked that theory. :D

How true that is exactly, I do now know.

The 52327S OEM drive that I briefly had was black inside and out. Didn't seem to help it much. If it were that simple, all drives would have black trays.

I once bought a black OEM LTR-52327S to put in a Dell computer, and it had a black tray. Its writing quality didn't seem any better than the quality of my beige LTR-52327Ss.

I can't tell any difference with the tray color.

My Yamaha has a gray colored tray.

But then again, you don't have a Premium to test the jitter of the resulting disk :wink:

Black CD tray minimizes jitter


Actually, I think the black tray looks nice. I don't know whether it actually helps the jitter rates or not.
