Not very exciting, but of the latest LG.

5,980 PC-Success本店

And 12x Hitachi-Maxell DVD-RAM media.

It can’t be a coincidence for Hitachi to help LG to release H10N in Tokyo just when Maxell releases their first 12x DVD-RAM media.

LG GSA-H10N in Seoul:

A little more expensive than in Japan as usual.

Nice!
Hopefully other drives/manufacturers follow soon.


#3

Does this drive finally support PIE/PIF scanning?
(I guess it doesn’t, but this shouldn’t be so difficult to support…)


#4

Nice to see this drive finally on sale. Buffalo released a rebadged versions of this drive earlier but LG’s own model was only seen on display in an exhibition as a prototype.

Hopefully it will only be a matter of time before this drive is sold around the world. Same for the 12x DVD-RAM discs.

I guess the only other question is if the H10A and H10N are in any way similar.

In Spain is already in stores :), anybody knows where find a review of this drive?


#6

Oh, you’re a lucky one. It’s only going to be available in Germany from End of April :frowning:

Review: No, I didn’t find any review on the web, but I’m sure the CDfreaks guys are going to make a nice review soon…


#7

As far as I know, LG doesn’t want that in any of their products. Forget it.


#8

Does it use the renesas chipset?
It’s now available in germany, interesting specs this would be my next Lg drive.


#9

Is there any information about 12x RAM media availability in Europe?


#10

Yes.
H10N uses RENESAS R8J32018FPV.
4167B is RENESAS R8J32007FPV.

TDK -R 8x(MIJ)

MC, that YUDEN000T02 looks pretty bad. Do you have any other scanning drive besides the 1620 or 1625?
