Twitter’s Ad Sales Surge. The second rating between the is a normal average rating. Litw-on was a nightmare…can you hear me? The best deals from Amazon’s one-day storage sale Amazon slashed prices on some 20 items.

All worked like a charm. The number of errors was quite low for any media, especially a rewritable disc. The DVD-R discs are becoming the less common type of disc, but many users burn this type of media, especially if there stand-alone players are designed to work with it.

This fast rewriting speed only became available in the last few months, and is the fastest currently available on this type of media. I definitely recommend this as a great media to use with this drive if you want to burn DVD-R discs and can tolerate the 4x speed.

And in addition to this somehow I am missing the buttons for play etc.

In my mind, this represents an impressive scan for a rewritable disc which tend to have more errors than write once mediawritten lite-ln an 8x speed. S11 comments, 0 good1 mixed0 poor.

Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. And things like stated reading speeds on the Liteon box are a joke.

Apparently Sony rebrands them under their own name as well, so there are some sites out there with crossflashing and hacked versions of firmwares to push them to limits.
