It's a drive that LG manufactures for Dell. Unfortunately, I haven't had any experience with it so I really can't comment on its reliability. If its like other LG drives though, it should be pretty good.

The drive uses a Panasonic SATA chipset and was released when the H55 was released, so I expect it has the same write quality.

Here's my review of the GSA-H55L:

It had a few issues writing at 20x when it was first released. I'm not sure if they fixed them with firmware updates.
