I've been using this unit for 10 months and it has been fantastic. I only use Yuden or Verbatim, most other media is a HUGE waste of money!

Got it at Office Max on sale for $59 today. Easy installation. It doesn't burn Memorex 16x DVD-R's -- it says illegal disc right before aborting a burn. DVD+R media works great but Memorex 2.4x DVD+R DL's get power calibration error every time. I tinkered around with making it my master, then back to slave, but still the same result. It's not worth the hassle. I'm taking it back tomorrow.

I bought it Best Buy and it worked right out of the box,
I have burned 48X Sony CD-Rs and Memorex 8x DVD+R with no problems. I tried burning PRODISC 8x DVD-R and it would not play on my Toshiba DVP 642 player. I tried burning it at 4x and it worked though. It looks like this DVD burner is picky on what media you can use it with.

This burner have been working fine for me.
I had seen a few disc that it could not burn on, but that have been like 1 out of 10 from the same spindle.
I have used:
Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB burned fine at 4x
Fujifilm DVD+R DL 8.5GB burned fine at 2.4x
Memorex DVD-R 8x burned at 8x, one bad disc that could not start the burning.
Maxell DVD-R 8x burned at 8x.

My first unit didn't work out of the box.

2nd unit died six weeks after purchase, two weeks past Best Buy's return policy expiration. Did I buy a warranty? No. Stupid me.

Weird thing is, the unit will still burn -RW's, but not -R's. On -R's it just suddenly decided all media was bad media, right in the middle of a spindle with which there'd been no previous problems.

I was having problems w/ my memorex DVD burner (the "same" model as far as memorex is concerned)and this unit had an updated box with exact same model, untill I opened it and saw a completly diffrent unit. You can identify this unit not by model # but by the picture on the box. If it shows a large LED and volume and headphone jact then it is this crappy Lite-On. I tried one burn w/ my favorite Linkyo -R 8x which burns @ 12x in the NEC clone version. This one only burned @ 8x and wrote the lead out for over 5 min. It said the burn was ok but my philips DVP-642 could not read the disc. What scrap, 1st burn is bad w/ media I know is great! Thank god I got the NEC problem fixed (not the drives fault). This goes back to the store tomorrow!!!!

Bought one at Staples a couple of weeks ago. 79$ on special. Works great and a decent software package to boot. Haven't had a single coaster in over 50+ DVD and 30+ CD burns to date. Only complaint is that when spinning at full speed does sound a bit loud. Other than that it beats the pants off my old Pioneer D106.
