LG GSA-4167B Super-Multi DVD±RW/RAM

14 October 2005
  • Conclusion: Like the GSA-4163B before it, the GSA-4167B has had its share of growing pains. People that picked up the drive right away quickly found out that its writing quality wasn't as good as some of LG's previous "Super-Multi" drives. Thankfully, LG was quick to respond, releasing a couple of updates for the GSA-4167B. The new firmware fixed many of the problems people were seeing, turning the GSA-4167B into a pretty decent drive.

  • Cons: Questionable writing quality with some DVD+R and DVD±R DL media, Had a hard time reaching its rated speeds when reading pressed and CD-R discs, Wasn't able to write to Verbatim 8x DVD+R DL media at 8x, Reads DVD-Videos at only 5x, Cannot set the book type of DVD+RW media, Cannot do write quality testing, Has a 2048KB buffer, Overburns to only 95:10
