PRESS RELEASE - February 27, 2007

LITE-ON's World First 20X DVD Writer - LH-20A1H, receives high score at CDRLABS.COM, "Performance can be summed up in one word: FAST".

Fremont, CA. – February, 2007 – Lite-On IT, the world’s leading manufacturer of optical storage solutions, received another favorable review for its new LH-20A1H Writer, the World’s first 20X Writer in the market. CDRLabs.com is a leading technology Website known for its in-depth and exhaustive reviews for some of today’s most advanced computer and consumer electronics technologies. The popular technology website cited “the LH-20A1H’s performance can be summed up in one word: fast”.

“LH-20A1H reached some pretty impressive transfer speeds with other types of DVD media”, “the drive not only turned in some impressive times, its writing quality was quite good” said Ian Sadkovich, a senior reviewer at CDRLabs.com. “For what it offers, Lite-On’s new drive is surprisingly affordable”.

The LH-20A1H offers “SmartWrite” feature, a self-learning mechanism that automatically detects and decides the optimal “write strategy” for each DVD±R recordable media. SmartWrite also supports overspeed function. Tested at the lab, Ian stated, ”the drive will try to write to your DVD+/- media at a speed higher than what would normally be supported. To do this, overspeed relies heavily on SmartWrite.”

In addition to that, the LH-20A1H also includes the latest version of LightScribe labeling technology which allows users to silkscreen any type of artwork right onto the face of the LightScribe supported CD or DVD. Users simply burn content data as always onto any LightScribe-compatible media, flip the disc over, reinsert it into the drive and burn a beautiful label based on personal artwork, text or photographs.

Adding to the convenience and creative control of the LightScribe feature, the new LH-20A1H DVD burner features “Super AllWrite” technology that provides consumers the ability of reading, writing and re-writing any disc format on the market, including DVD-RAM and Double-Layer DVD±R format discs.

The drive writes and re-writes to DVD-RAM discs at an optimum speed of 12X. The unit’s Double Layer disc capability allows writing at a write speed of 8X. It also supports 8X DVD+RW and 6X DVD-RW Rewriting; 16X max DVD-Reading; and 48X CD-R Writing, 32X CD-RW Rewriting, and 48X max. CD Reading.
