First let me say this...I am not a newbie. A brief history of my DVD / BR drives going back, let's say 6-7 years
BenQ DW1640 (still have in second machine)
Samsung SH-S223Q (still have destined for second machine)
Now with this said...I have to say...the Plextor PX716A was what I considered one of the greatest drives ever made. The Pioneer BDR-205 is in a class by itself...BUT...this LG drive is shaping up to be the BEST DVD Burner I have ever had, or even seen in quite awhile. Here are more scans...Using Verbatim DVD-R 16X, Verbatim DVD+R 16X, plus quality scans
This drive is Unbelievable!!!!
