Another review…done by me lol…

LG GSA-1463B…Life’s Good…

Some Images

Nov Batch Also!!!

Black Tray…very typical…at this moment…

Some specs from LG JPN

Nero Info Tools

Thanks for the info eleewhm. Thought about getting a Benq1620Pro but I’m also interrested in this new LG model as I followed Kenshin’s posts about it. Can’t wait for the first test results…

p.s. I’m still running a Pioneer DVD-105 which is my only DVDRW drive.

@kalas…if you are not into overspeeding media…LG is suited for you…simple and straight forward and as LG do not emphasie so much on overspeeding…

BenQ1620Pro if you are more into 16x speeds…quite a number of media can be burnt at 16x speeds…

Burn 1: Verbatim 16x MCC004

doing 5BX 3 burns
