how fast is reading speed ofg lg 5163d?
how long will this drive last?

Maximum reading speed is 10x. Nobody knows how long the drive will last. I have burned hundreds of dvd’s with mine and no problem yet.

If you need a longer lifetime for your DVD burner, get 2-year warranty. Some of the LG drives on the market are 2-year-warrantied, depending on the distributor’s policy. When manufacturers feel their drives have a very high mechanical failure rate, they are more likely to provide as short warranty period as possible. Some memory vendors advertise “limited lifetime warranty” because they feel their memory modules should last forever or at least longer than CPUs and VGAs residing on the same motherboards.
