When it works - it's good... But only when it works....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LiteOn IHOS104 4x SATA Internal BD-ROM Drive Bare Including CyberLink Software (Personal Computers)
So I got this drive as I have upgraded to a 2nd display and wanted to watch movies whilst gaming or surfing the net... It worked for about a week then would mysteriously disappear from the PC... wasn't showing in 'Device Manager' or 'My Computer'. Only a reboot would bring it back and then randomly it would vanish again...
I tried changing SATA cables, the port its connected to... un-installing and reinstalling, upgrading to the latest drivers or rolling back to previous drivers... everything I could think of with no change. I contacted Lite-on and waited and waited for a response... what I did get was a request to do exactly what I had already done, even though I had already told them that I had done it all... This week it has complete dropped off the face of the earth and will not even show on a reboot... There is still power to it and it should be working but nothing...So I am sending it back to Amazon for a refund.
My recommendation? don't go for cheap OEM products, spend a little more and get a proper branded model

That's mine started doing that too, did you actually send it back or did you manage to sort it another way?

I sent it back as it was within the EU guarantee time line and replaced it with Samsung Slim Retail External 3D Blu Ray Writer
Haven't looked back since
