LG Electronics has been a leader in the industry for more than 40 years. Since the introduction of their first radio in 1959, the company has grown to become one of the world's top electronics manufacturers, offering everything from large home appliances to tiny mobile phones. LG is no stranger to the optical storage industry either. They've lead the way in this area, developing and manufacturing a wide range of products, including the industry's first "Super-Multi" drives.
While LG has fully embraced Blu-ray and HD DVD, they haven't abandoned the DVD quite yet. At this year's Consumer Electronics Show, the company unveiled their latest "Super-Multi" drive, the GSA-H55L. Featuring some of the fastest reading and writing speeds available, the drive is capable of 20x DVD±R, 10x DVD±R DL, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW and 12x DVD-RAM writing speeds and a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. The GSA-H55L also boasts an impressive list of features including HP's LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling system and LG's new SecurDisc technology. With SecurDisc, users can protect their data against unauthorized access and increase the chances of it being recovered should the disc become damaged.
