    Update: I see in another review that the reviewer was able to burn 2 DL disc and play them back successfully. Reply

    What I find odd is that on the LG web site it says that the LG GSA-4120B "supports" DL disc, but it doesn't say you can burn a DL disc with this the GSA-4120B burner, maybe that's why all the test on DL media ended with coasters :P Reply

    Kris: 3x RAM media would suffice as ViRGE allready pointed out.
    You also benchmarked DVD+R 8x and didn't skip these tests just because no 12x media were present.

    Missing images here as well!

    As for LG's DVD burners. I and a friend both have LG GSA-4081Bs and we're quite happy with them. It writes quickly, reads quickly, the only complaint is that it sucks for burning CDRs. Very slow, very picky with media, simply no good. I put my TEAC 24x CD-RW and friend's LiteOn 48x CD-RW back in after a week or so.

    As for the need for DVD burners that araczynski was asking about. How do you suppose I burned 105 GB I downloaded last month? This month I'm already at 72 GB and there are still 10 days to go. I'd go crazy if I didn't have a DVD burner.

    Kris: Are you asking where the 5x DVD-RAM media is, or just DVD-RAM media in general? Newegg carries DVD-RAM discs, although a 5-pack is $20.

    PS I'm getting the same missing image problem as MadAd

    I wonder why LG keeps using Z-CLV for burning... Reply

    Somebody help me out here, what am i forgetting that I can't find a single reason to actually put down even $60 on a DVD burner?

    Any movie I actually would want to see more then once I will buy an original of(very cheaply) somewhere on the net. I have about 7 movies in my 'collection' of movies i consider worth watching more then once.

    I have no data that i consider worth wasting time on backing up (other then my bookmarks which i make multiple copies of on my multiple system drives).

    Heck, I haven't had a use for my CD burner (other then being a second CDRom in my system) in almost a year.

    My MP3 collection is stored on a car hd, i would admit that would suck to recreate off of the original CD's (another thing I haven't found anything worthy in in over 2 years i kid you not to buy OR rip).

    What am I missing?? Am I somehow immune to the marketing machines of these companies or something?? What other uses for these burners should I be thinking of??

    Is Anand whipping you guys with long Ramen noodles?
