The drive that LG sent us for this review was manufactured in March of and had firmware version DL However, there were a number of cases where the writing quality could have been better. The drive also uses the RPC II region control, allowing a user to change the drive’s region at most 5 times. For this test I made a copy of a pressed test CD. Also i am still on the wire cable have not had a chance to get another cable yet. As you can see, this caused readability problems with both drives. CD DAE is actually designed to be an audio ripping program.

The other thing is dvd recognition once you aohw-16735 dvd and autostar seems kind of slow, but i can live with that. While LG’s new “Super-Multi” drive has a few rough spots, it performed pretty well throughout most of our tests.

To be honest speedwise I am compeltely happy…6 minutes not a long time so even if I did not get the full 16x…I am more worried about quality of burns I guess. So what are “good” results supposed to look like? To make a long story short, I am using a 4.

Written by Karr Wang, this utility can be used to test the number of C1 and C2 errors on a disc. This, and the high jitter rates, caused a number of readability problems. So what are “good” results supposed to look like? We use it in our testing because it can also be used as a quick and easy way to sohw-17635 the quality. LG’s new “Super-Multi” drive performed pretty well in our packet writing tests.

By reading these discs back at this speed, we can see if there are any readability issues caused by the number of errors or high levels of jitter.

All of the times below include not only the actual writing time, but the lead in and out dvfrw too.

While SMART-X provides the fastest possible ripping speed, if you just rvdrw to listen to music or watch a movie, it’s not necessary for the drive to maintain high speeds to read the data.

If you have autorun enabled, the menu pictured below will automatically come up when you insert the disc. The CD is almost exactly 74 minutes.

Nero CD Speed v4. For this test I used Pure Funk. Due to its 12x writing speed, it was nearly twice as fast as the drives from the competition. While the writing quality varied from one manufacturer to another, the results were fairly good for the most part.

While the GSA-H10N has a few rough spots that need to be worked out, the drive offers a good mix of value, performance and features that should make it a big hit among consumers and enthusiasts alike. From this information we can see what the drive’s average speed was and how many errors it generated.
