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.

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.
