Review: LiteON 24/10/40 IDE Reviewer: Stevieb Provided by: LiteON Firmware: Version 5S54 and 5S0J
LiteON has earned respect in the recording industry this year. It expanded so quickly it became the number two CDRW-manufacturor and is heading as an arrow towards the number 1 spot next year... All potential OEM custumors are standing in line to fix contracts. LiteON makes for examples CDRW-drives for Compaq, and many other PC-supplies. In no-time this company grew very aggressively due to excellent products and pricing.
Besides this the company is very innovative and is always one of the first brands to bring out new technologies. This new LiteON LTR-24102B is the answer from LiteOnIT to Plextor, Sanyo and TDK.
