LG GGC-H20L optical disc drive Internal Black

Add to compare
The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

October 2007LG USA was kind enough to send us the GGC-H20L Super Multi Blu-ray Disc & HD DVD-ROM Drive with LightScribe. LG, even though an early endorser of Blu-Ray, has made it possible for the consumer to experience both Blu-Ray and HD DVD formats...

Wojna dwóch rywalizujących ze sobą obozów wspierających formaty Blu-Ray i HD DVD nie dotknęła jeszcze przeciętnych klientów, a już na rynku pojawił się napęd, który pozwala na odczyt wszystkich typów nośników. Firma LG, znana z wprowadzania nagrywarek DVD...
Good możliwość odczytu obydwu konkurencyjnych standardów BluRay i HD DVD, szybki odczyt płyt wszystkich standardów (rekord x6, czyli 27MB/s dla BDR), jakość zapisu płyt DVDR dobra lub bardzo dobra, bardzo dobra jakość zapisu płyt CDR, interfejs SATA, dobra jak...
Bad bardzo słaba korekcja błędów dla płyt CD, niska prędkość zgrywania ścieżek audio w programie EAC, cena (w dniu testów ok. 300 USD)...
Bottom line Firma LG po raz kolejny wprowadziła do sprzedaży napęd combo - czyli urządzenie umożliwiające odczytywanie danych z większej liczby typów nośników niż zapisywanie. Napędy combo sprzed lat odczytywały nośniki CD i DVD, a zapisywały jedynie te pierwsze.Napę...
