Summary: I read the other reviews here before buying the drive. They are for the most part correct BUT.....I had no trouble installing the drive and this was my first installation. I pulled the older drive out and plugged in the cables to this one. The drive worked like a charm. The drive is as fast as advertised and works well with 3 different DVDs I have used so far. Lightscribe is really nice too. Overall, I dont know what else I could have expected from this drive.
Summary: The drive have no manual, but come with nero express for burning cd/dvd cover design. Lightscibe print is a nice feature, but need to download Lightscibe software online. It take 15-20min. to print a DVD cover. Print it twice you get the best picture close to black/white pictures.
Excerpt: This is one of many lg plug and play DVD drives, this would be a very good product if it worked, But it does not work. The support for this product is as good as a gold fish's memory, dreadful. It all came about after i decided to build my own pc, decent specification and so I thought this product would fit in perfectly with the rest of my components, quad core processor and 4GB Ram to name a few.
Excerpt: LG Electronics has been a leader in the industry for nearly 50 years.In my view LG the bets manufacturer of CD & DVD Writes.This is the most advanced and fantastic Writer i have seen. If we come to features Drives with new features and faster DVD writing speeds. This LG introduced one of the world's first 22x DVD writers, the GH22LP20.
Summary: Mein bisheriger Brenner (auch ein LG-Gerät) war defekt. Ich habe lange und vergeblich nach einem Ersatzgerät gesucht. Aber für meinen XP-Computer habe ich nichts an Neugeräten gefunden. Ich habe dann diesen Brenner (LG GH22LP20) als Gebrauchtgerät entdeckt und bestellt.
