LG Electronics has been a leader in the industry for nearly 50 years. Since the introduction of their first radio in 1959, the company has grown to become one of the world's top electronics manufacturers, offering everything from large home appliances to tiny mobile phones. LG is no stranger to the optical storage industry either. Working closely with companies like Hitachi, they've lead the way in this area, developing and manufacturing a wide range of products, including the industry's first "Super-Multi" drives.
While Blu-ray is slowly gaining momentum, the DVD has a lot of life left in it. Companies like LG continue to push the limits of the format, developing drives with new features and faster DVD writing speeds. This spring, LG introduced one of the world's first 22x DVD writers, the GH22LP20. This new "Super-Multi" drive is capable of 22x DVD±R, 16x DVD±R DL, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW and 12x DVD-RAM writing speeds and a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. The GH22LP20 also boasts an impressive list of features including HP's LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling system and LG's new SecurDisc technology. With SecurDisc, users can protect their data against unauthorized access and increase the chances of it being recovered should the disc become damaged.
With features and specs like this, it's hard not to be impressed by LG's new "Super-Multi" drive. To give you an idea of what to expect from the GH22LP20 we'll take a look at its features and then see how it compares to some of the 20x DVD±RW drives from the competition. Does LG's new drive have what it takes? Is it the fastest DVD writer around? We'll answer these questions and more as we take a look at the LG GH22LP20.
