LG GCE-8523B 52x24x52

Good morning all

I just purchased the above drive. A very good deal at future shop. $29.99 after rebates. I am interested if anyone has seen a review of this drive. The review at cdr labs is for the 8520B.

So far so good, I have burned a few Samsung 48x discs at 48 speed no problem.

Thanks
Al

I can't help you.


You look vaguely familiar though.

You look like a guy who is sitting 20' away from me.

He's wearing a Hawiian shirt and a headset just like that one...and he also bought an LG drive last week.

Glad to have joined up. I have been reading posts here for some time and have discovered a wealth of information. Hopefully, I can contribute something of value as well. Probably not, but I can always hope.

Thank you for your efforts Eliminator, much appreciated.

Like you said the review doesn't have a whole lot information. I almost wonder if the reviewer even looked at the drive, he was talking about a drive with a head phone jack and volume controls which the drive doesn't have at all.

I will keep my eyes peeled for a review. Maybe CDR Labs will do one.(hint, hint,). The drive has worked flawlessly for me so far. If I discover any problems I will be sure to let everyone know.

By the way, beware of Spazmogen, he is a bad bad man, who encourages co-workers to buy things for their computers when the can't afford them, and introduces people to music that they can't get out of their heads.... songs like "My head hurts, my feet stink and I don't love Jesus"

Evil I say, just pure evil

not likely, as Ian has already reviewed the LG GCE-8520B

i guess the two drives are very nearly identical. so most of what you read in that review will apply to the 8523B too.

Here at newegg.com you can see the difference:

and the GCE-8520BK

Here the drives are black but I'm sure that the beige version has the same differences.
