Thanks for letting us know.
I use to love my LG-4040B (2x) burner in the past. But it to to burn too slow and didn't like the new 16x medias etc...
When I bought a new one, at the time, I was not sure between an new LG or a NEC, and the choice went to NEC-3550a.
I may relook at LG again for my next purchase,
