The GSA-H20L, which is a newer model meant to replace the 4166B uses a similar chipset and so may also be able to handle SD 2.90 but I’m not sure. The drive is still quite new and I haven’t found any reviews for it which test that feature yet.
Edit : There is some conflicting information on whether certain drives are 3 sheep capable or not. According to the local tests down using Alex Noe’s sheep test, no drive I’ve ever seen is a 3 sheep drive. Yet according to cdrinfo’s reviews, the 4166B can handle SD 3.1 :
I am thinking that instead of acquiring GSA-4166B, I may be better off acquiring two DVD burners:A good LG DVD burner (see initial post to this thread; with exception to “Must be a three sheep burner”) that is as close to three sheep consideration as possible, without LightScribe support;
and a cheap DVD burner capable of burning LightScribe well.I am thinking that the price of GSA-4166B is greatly due to LightScribe support (correct this if incorrect).
With the new (at time of post) information of this post, what are my options?
