3x or 5x??
The future lg drive is GSA 4165b/GSA-5165D (USB 2.0 and FireWire) and the specs. are:dvd-dl 4x,dvd+dl 8x,cd 48x,cdrw 32x.And the drive will have LigthScribe.It will be out in april 2005.At the end of the year will be a lg drive with sata interface.(Source CEBIT 2005)
What about -RAM?
The rest of specs are like as gsa 4163.
I would like to see the RAM speed much higher, of course.
That’s what I thought…I will still be the first to get it. Better stock up on 5x -RAM!
DVD Writing Speeds:
DVD+R: 16x Max
DVD+RW: 8x Max
DVD+R DL: 8x Max
DVD-R: 16x Max
DVD-RW: 6x Max
DVD-R DL: 4x Max
DVD-RAM: 5x Max
CD Writing Speeds:
CD-R: 48x Max
CD-RW: 32x Max
DVD-ROM: 16x Max
CD-ROM: 48x Max
Buffer Size: 2MB
The writing speed of LightScribe disc … I guess 1x or 2x.
I really hoped they had bumped the DVD-RAM to 8x, still 5x.
(Imaginary) LG HD DVD Writers:
48x CD read
8x DVD+R DL
8x DVD-R DL
16x DVD read
Not so imaginary. Just give it time and I’m pretty sure you will get all of those.
Yeah, what’s at issue is the timing. I just hope it will be this summer, not end of the year.
I want it now!
I wonder if the internals of the the new LG 4165B drive will be the same as the 4163B. If so, I wonder if a fireware upgrade across models would be possible?
The new LG 4165 has lightscribe
16x + - R
8x +RW 6x -RW
8x +R DL
4x - R DL ?
Check post #27 of this thread, I already posted the full specs.
Yes you did, sorry, but you forgot to put LG 4165 at the top so it didnt sink in when I read it. Still it does have very nice specs
My spelling is dire - should of course be firmware, not fireware.
No problem, we understand you.
@KenW, I know I forgot the LG GSA-4165B part but I was too late to correct it.
The specs are nice, although I really hope that they will boost the DVD-RAM speed upto 8x with a firmware upgrade or something … 5x is bit slow.
I to would like to see faster dvd-ram speed, we will have to see what happens, I now have LG 4163 and it worksd well.
NEC is gonna release a 16x DVD-RAM writer at the end of this year, I’m waiting for the first LG drive that can do this.
