LG GSA-H55N/L : Post your scans and questions here

Du you have a LiteOn too for quality scan? I just wonder because of the PIF peaks.

Thanks 2601. Is there a drive that you don’t have? :clap:

LG GSA-H55N just arrived in Singapore too as of today. Gonna get one to test. :smiley:

The H55N uses the same chipset as H50N , so suffering from PIF spikes is normal.

Go for it Sen. You guys get burners sooner than most here.

Thanks for the scan 2601. Burn time of 5:03 on +R isn’t any faster than what I’m getting on the LG GSA H-42N @ 18X, though. Post a -R burn @ 20X when you get a chance.

yes, +R is not really much faster, but -R should be about 15-20 seconds faster.
I just wonder why 18x is so “slow”. Maybe too long leadin/out

Do you mean “exact” same chipset. ???

If so, i can smell a crossflashing coming on :bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile:

yes, seems so.
As you can see in the pictures of http://cdr.cz/a/20763 it is the same chipset Panasonic MN103SC7GRT1

Fastest burn speed with very poor quality. :Z

Just gotten one. It’s rather pricey here as you can see. :eek:

72$ = 58.83 euro’s, this very expensive for an LG dvd-rw, with only a few more euros you can get a plextor, and abuse it’s varirec options.

35.50 euro actually.

19 sec lead-in, ~15sec lead-out. Very fast timing. Made in Japan Verbatim 16x DVD-R (TY) used. :clap:

Normal scan don’t work, so i have to do a quick quality scan instead.

No error on the LG. But the Lite-On got read error at the last 400MB mark…

Lead-in is a long 49 sec :Z Made in Japan Verbatim 16x DVD+R (TY) used

The spikes occur on those dips. Heard this is normal for Panasonic chipset…

Smooth transfer on the LG

Sony 16x DVD+/-R media can write @ 18x max

Looks like this H55N is pushing the envelope when burning under 4:45.

Thanks for the posts Sen.

The Liteon Drives seemed not like to read the discs which burnt by this Drive(especially on -R).
