This is a review of the lvw-5027ghc+. Its just the updated version of this one. I bought 2 of these in October 2006 within 6 months I was having trouble recording dvd's, tried all makes. Contacted Liteon about these and they told me these have no warranty (grey machines) means sold on with no warranty which no one told me. I'm stuck with these boxes and liteon are no help. DON'T TRUST THIS MANUFACTURER as you too might get some shiny boxes to look at. They don't care about customers or the law. I'm now talking to trading standards about this and possibly the police for misleading. These should be repaired free of charge within 2 years (warranty). If you can call it warranty.DON'T BUY LITEON YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED DON'T COME CRYING AFTERWARDS.They know about this problem with these dvd's(ddw-813s writer) but fail to recall them.
