Hi chaps. Im here to complain about my stupidity today. I bought the LG GSA-E40N external dvd writer. I was expecting read speads of dl media of up to 12x like my benq 1650 and pioneer dvr-111 handle easily, But no, this thing only reads at a max of 5x, its capped :Z. So i can only really use it for writing dl media. What a waste of time and money. Sigh. I'm sure its a good drive for others but for me, if a drive has capped read speeds then its junk.
