LG GGC-H20L Super Multi Blue Blu-ray Disc & HD DVD-ROM

19 December 2007
  • Conclusion: With their series of Super Multi Drives, LG has bridged the gap between Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD by giving users the ability to enjoy high-def movies in both formats. Unfortunately, the high price of these drives has put them out of reach for most consumers, especially those that are only looking to play movies. For these people, LG has introduced the GGC-H20L.
  • Pros: Reads single layer BD-ROM's and BD-R media at 6x, Reads BDMV and BD-R DL media at 4.8x, Reads HD DVD-ROM's at 3x, Writes to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 16x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Writes to DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media at 4x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD±R media at 12x, Reads DVD±RW media at 10x, Reads DVD±R DL media at 8x, Features 40x CD-R and 24x CD-RW writing speeds, Includes buffer underrun prevention technology,...

  • Excerpt: For just $20 more than Asus’s drive, LG’s GGC-H20L lets you read both HD DVD and Blu-ray discs—a luxury that’s well worth the extra cost of admission. The GGC-H20L also affords you slightly better DVD burning performance. Rated at 16x for DVD+/-R writing, LG’s GGC-H20L bested Asus’s drive by filling a single-layer DVD+R in 5:51 (min:sec).
  • Pros: Blu-ray and HD DVD disc reads, standard-DVD convenience.
  • Cons: Just slightly better than so-so DVD performance.

LG GGC-H20L (Blu-ray/HD DVD Combo Drive)

Hardware Zone
12 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Having a hybrid drive capable of reading both HD formats is a significant step towards greater adoption of Blu-ray and HD DVD-ROM. The other major factor is probably price. As we have seen in the US market, falling HDTV prices have led to a remarkable buying spree from consumers and we believe once these group of new users settle down with their purchases, the next inevitable step would be to sample the much touted HD versions of their favorite movies.

HD-Techniken vereint in einem Gerät

15 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Seit Anbeginn des HDTVs (hochauflösendes Fernsehen) fechten Big-Player der Elektronikkonzerne einen Formatkrieg um das richtige HD-Medium aus. Das eine Lager glaubt fest an Blu-ray-Scheiben, das andere widmet sich hingegen Microsofts HD-DVD. Letztendlich wird aber nur eine Disc die Marktherrschaft an sich reißen, wodurch bei HD-Interessierten große Unsicherheit und ein gewisses Kaufrisiko herrscht.
  • Pros: Voll kompatibel zu Blu-ray-/HD-DVD-Discs, 6X Blu-ray-Brenner (GGW-H20L), Großes Software-Paket, Geringe Betriebslautstärke
  • Cons: Teilweise fehlerhaftes Brennen, Träges Abspielen von HD-Discs

Userartikel: LG GGC H20L - Blu-Ray & HD-DVD Drive

24 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Als eierlegende Wollmichsau könnte man das LG fast sehen, wenn nicht die fehlende Blu-Ray-Brennfunktion wäre. Wer aber die Preise für entsprechende Rohlinge kennt (ab 6-10 Euro aufwärts), kann auf diese Funktion derzeit wohl noch verzichten. Weniger gut sieht es derzeit mit Software für den PC aus. Nur Win-DVD 9 Plus hat sich als "relativ" zuverlässig herausgestellt. Was die Zukunft bringt, wird man sehen. Für ca.
