Postby dellboy on Sat Jun 10, 2006 8:01 am

Has anyone out there got the the new lg dvd writer,
if so are they pleased with it .
Is it a good burner.
This LG is available here in the uk , but i am in two minds at the moment wether to purchase the burner as there does not seem to
be any reviews or latest tests.

I ran a few tests back in April. It's a very fast drive but I wasn't impressed with the jitter rates:

it seems that the GSA-H10N and GSA-H10A are the same hardware but with different firmware. the H10A can be crossflashed to the H10N.
discussion here: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=177603
cdfreaks did a review of the H10A: http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/272
so you can read the review and draw conclusions about the H10N.

also, here's a topic at cdfreaks that has lot's of media scans of the H10N.

apparently the jitter issue is only when tested in BenQ drives, but generally the discs play fine in other players. no concrete info on this as of now AFAIK.

I made some scans:

http://cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=156866#156866

The TTH02 from Datawrite are crap, my Benq 1655 shows very similar results. But look at the scan with the Soyn, very crazy differents between scans with Benq 1640 and LiteOn 1653.

Maybe the higher jitter confuses the Benq, my H10N had no problems to read the burned media at 16x

More scans will come in the next weeks
