Excerpt: We expected LG’s new 6x external Blu-ray burner to perform similarly to the company’s GBW-H20L internal offering, what with the two having identical read/write speed ratings, but we were wrong. The external drive is a bigger, more expensive letdown.
Pros: Good BD-R and DVD-R write times.
Cons: Huge; pathetic BD-RE writes; not worth the price.
Excerpt: LG's dual-format drive is ideal for those who invested in HD-DVD before Blu-ray romped to victory in the HD wars. The external drive will read both of the previously competing formats, as well as writing to Blu-ray at an industry-leading 6x speed.
