I was very happy with my LITE-ON LTR-52246S CD burner until it refused to write any media after two years and a week or two. Although the warranty was void (since more than two years passed), LITE-ON was so kind to replace the broken device with a brand new SOHR-5238S + 2 years warranty.
The new device is not bad, but not "perfect" either. It seems to be a bit more picky when it comes to unknown CD-R media and its error correction seems worse than the LTR-52246S'. Another thing which I don't like (although it has nothing to do with quality whatsoever) is that the SOHR-5238S has only one green LED which indicates reading, writing and SMART-Burn - the old writer had a green, a red and an orage LED.

Overall, the LITE-ONs are decent drives with a good price. The support was very quick and friendly. According to c't tests, there are pretty much errors when writing at higher speeds, but this seems to happen with most drives tested. Even the PX-712A which I have now doesn't perform well with some media.
