LG Introduces (Another) Super-Multi Drive - The GSA-H10A

Postby Ian on Fri Feb 03, 2006 4:59 pm

Yep, yet another Super-Multi drive. As far as I can tell, the GSA-H10A is a neutered version of the GSA-H10N.

the faceplate looks more like the older drives (4040-4163) than the newer ones (like 4167).
which means looks better! :D

Yeah, the round eject button is back.

From what I can gather, these drives just started to ship in Japan. I'm sure Europe will follow soon with the US getting them 4-5 months from now. :roll:

I'm guessing the LG GSA-H20 is the LightScribe enabled version of the H10A

Got a GSA-H20L 2 days ago but went throw a lot of trouble to have both LF and LS (nec+lg) work ... Nero 7.x.x.x wasn't possible so i downgaded to nero 6.6.1.4 .... seems like a good drive but a bit noisy....
From what i saw it's a lot cheaper here in Greece ... 52euro

Someone said -sorry i can't link(remember) you- that it's a rebuged 4166 so if that's the case it has a panasonic chipset... also the H20L , at least the one i got has f/w ver. 1.00 that is supposed to be a panasonic f/w version...

GSA-H10A

Postby kilnz on Thu Mar 23, 2006 1:34 pm

#-o Indeed the GSA-H10A is a brand new model, I ordered mine on 16 Feb 06 and received it on 23 March 06, here in SOUTH AFRICA! This model has hit Africa and it only differ from the GSA-4167B in that it now can write DVD+R DL at 8x as opposed to 6x!(Says on the label February 2006)It also has the exact same face plate as the 4167B, i.e. the sqaure button.
