Something BenQ and Plextor did and now they are gone.
LG does make a good drive, but it frustrates me as well that they just shove another model out the door. Guess there is something to their business practice that makes them money this way, but I don't like it... But I do own two LG's and prefer them over the Pioneer for quality in engineering. I had two DVR-212D's that had one quirk or another... One would not burn CD-R's, one would not read anything it burned (but the other drives did) and the third finally works. I do think it produces outstanding burns, but I have little faith in their QC.
