Summary: So far a solid performer, this is my first LG burner, but most likely not my last. A little quiter then my last few Lite ON devices and recognized by Mac OSX Lion 10.7.1, all versions of Windows I have thrown at it, various machines as well.
Pros: IDE - Fast Speed, helps me burn on older machines in a flash. No coasters with Verbatim Dual Layer DVD-R and Verbatim DVD-R media, likewise with some Ridata DVD-R media as well.
Summary: i've always used lg had no problems out of them yet ..
Pros: fast shipping from new egg..thank's.. LG CD/DVD Burner Black IDE Model GH22LP21 .. work's great ..read's and writes every thing i put in it..haven't tryed the light scribe yet..smooth and quite.. would buy again..
Summary: I would buy another one without even thinking about it. :-)
Pros: I have been using the GH22LP21 burner for 6 months. I have never encountered any problem with it. Write speeds are true, as the manufacturer specifies. Very quite and fast. Lightscribe works perfectly. I highly recommend this DVD Burner. :-)
