Does anyone have any experiences on the LG 4480 combo drive ? Which one would be a better buy ?
Me. Just got one yesterday. I think both are great. Hard to say which one is better. I haven't bought a Samsung SM-348B yet. Just waiting for a chance to get one (retail 8MB version) for something like $80.
Though I already have two 4x DVD writers and had nearly 20 CD writers, the LG and Samsung 48/24/48/16 combination CD-R/DVD-ROM drives will take care of most CD writing and DVD-ROM/-Video/-Audio/-R/+R/-RW/+RW reading tasks.
The drive has been on sale for some time in South Korea and it's right now naturally one of the bestselling ODD products along with Samsung SM-348B here.
And wait for Ian's GCC-4480B review.
