Hi guys!!!
I have found this burner for 83 euros here in italy and seems pretty interesting.
Any opinions?Any good?
I also want to know if is possible to (in the future) change the drive and keep the external case.Any ideas?Is it compatible with other burners?

Thanks a lot!!!

Welcome _giorgos!

Since 2166 supports Lightscribe I suppose that normally it will be a 4166 in external version. In that case the 4166 is a very good burner and the 86 euros is a good price.
As for putting other drives in its case I think there will be no problem, if it is for an HD then might be, not sure, but with a different burner probably not.

Just bought from a local store here a liteon 1673 external and goes pretty good.
The guy told me that can try it for 7 days and if i don't like it i can bring it back.
Should i keep it or bring it back and buy the LG for 75euros?He has the LG 2164 and not the 66.
An other question,do all drives have the same characteristics?I mean the distances of ide and power connector are the same?
Can i put a new drive in liteons case or must be only liteon?

It is an interesting device with Lightscribe and DVD-RAM support.

In Greece you can get it for 99 euros from Eshop. At Infoshop you'll find it at 83 euros while at Pixmania for 82 euros but you should add 15 euros for shipping. For this reason check what will be the shipping cost from Italy, 83 euros including the shipping cost or not?

You may use the http://www.scroutz.gr to check for prices in Greece.

I have use many external cases from Plextor, LiteOn, Freecom, LG etc, and I never had problems using a different drive with the enclosure. Normally you won't have any problems. If it is for hard drives, as also Antonio said, there might be, half of those I tried didn't support hard disk.

Thanks for your good words.


Minos can you describe me please how was the interior (contacts,chip) of liteons drive?Mine has no cables just a nest and you push in the drive.Can i push in there any other burner?Or only liteon?

Something else minos.Is it possible to have an image of LG's case interior?
Liteon's case is abit strange and i don't think that i can insert other drive than liteon.

the problem is that liteon's case has exactly the same dimensions with the drive.So other drives bigger or smaller can't be fitted in.

Thanks a lot minos.I need the LGz interior inorder to see if is easy to fit another drive.Because LGz front side is a bit tricky i think (the case has a proper eject button).
Ohhh and....the LGz burst rate PLZ.
Probably i'll change the drive with lgz 2164 or 66....Maybe.I have 6 days to try it ;)
I own you a lot of souvlaki and lot of beers!!!

The enclosure seems to be identical to this one of the 5160, only the color is different

Yes i agree.The only dif. seems to be the extra FW (prolific 3507) that 5160 uses.
Thnaks minos!I don't know how to thank you!
I'll order it now from pixmania.it and i let you know when i receive it
