Windows 7: recommendation on an internal DVD-R/W drive

recommendation on an internal DVD-R/W drive

Ordering the last parts for my build. My Sony DVD-R/W has been acting up (slow read times).
Is the Lite-On iHAS124-04 any good?
LITE-ON Model iHAS124-04 DVD Burner - Bulk Black - Newegg.com

Any other drives I should be lookin at? I don't need a Blu-ray drive. I would like the depth of the drive to be the same as my Sony drive (a little over 6 1/2"). I will need to stealth my drive.

I've used Lite-ON models and found them to be very good.

Samsungs and NEC's should also be considered.

Please use quality media; JVC (Taiyo Yuden) or Verbatim (Mitsubishi) purchased from reputable houses such as Amazon, Newegg, or SuperMediaStore. Many walk-in discount stores sell inferior or counterfeit products.

I had some LiteOn's and they tended to be noisy. They were in the $25 range at newegg.com I would avoid the inexpensive LiteOn's.

I have some Samsung and some LG's and they work great.

I do a lot of audio CD burning and I have a bank of 5 USB connected Samsung drives that I use for audio CD production. I can burn 5 audio CD's (or any other CD/DVD) at a time.

I use this LG and so far it has done it job quietly.

This is a couple years old so they might have a updated model.

Depending on what you want to spend, you should go blu-ray.

And Memorex has always been good to me.

LiteOn is widely used. I believe that Sony has rebranded some of their drives.

I've had a couple of LiteOns die rather young, though. I've had better luck with Samsung and Asus. I haven't owned any LG drives, but they have a favorable reputation.

My BluRay burner is Pioneer.

I've also had 2 Lite On DVD burners and they were both very noisy. I have an LG Blue Ray burner and an ASUS DVD burner both work very well and are fairly quiet.

Ditto on Samsungs. They have been trouble free for me.

I've used over 10 Lite On's with very little complaints, only recently did one DVD writer prove to be very slow reading when ripping music. Called Lite-One shipped it back and they replaced it with a perfect new unit. Not bad odds, I'm sure Samsung's, ASUS and LG's are good as well. My only Blu-Ray unit another Lite-On runs perfect and it blazes thru rip's !
