    I want to upgrade and get a new dvd rom, I have a LiteOn832S-DL dvd burner, should I get a liteon dvd rom?. What is a good one that is not too expensive that I can buy and any recommendations on where to purchase it. Thanks, Steve G.

    I live in Jersey,I figured maybe ordering one on-line. I was thinking as much as 70. if that is feasible, I paid that for my dvd liteon burner. This will be my main drive, I think. I will have this and my dvd burner so yes I believe this is my main drive. Thanks

    Well you can't go wrong with a Lite-on dvd rom.I keep thinking of getting shut of my Lite-on drive for a NEC 3500.But as it is only just a year old and i love the drive i'm finding it hard to part with.

    Make that $27.99 ... the Lite On XJ-HD 166S is NOT a burner

     I posted about a week ago (in the DVD-ROM drives forum / Best Drive at Reading Problem DVDs thread), sig1999xp, and everyone seemed to like the Lite On XJ-HD 166s

    Hey just installed my drive but when I look at it in my device manager it says, sohd167t, I think that it is the Lite On XJ-HD 166S but I was just wondering. Thanks Steve

    The 167T is the newest "version" of the 166S and every bit as good from what I gather. Great choice :)
