LG HL-DT-ST BD-RE GGW-H10N Blu-ray Burner Review

June 19th 2007 | Storage

LG pleasantly surprised the attendants of the 2007 International CES trade show in Las Vegas last January with the introduction of the first combo drive that supports both the Blu-Ray and the HD DVD formats. The new GGW-H10N is a Super Multi Blue drive compatible with Blu-ray Disc, DVD, CD read/write and HD-DVD-ROM.

The GGW-H10N can record up to 50GB (on a dual layer 50GB BD-R/BD-RE recordable media) of data, equivalent to 4-1/2 hours of high-definition video or 22 hours of standard definition video. Surpassing the market standard, LG is providing a 4x recording speed for Blu-ray Discs, which means that it takes only 23-24 minutes to burn a full single layer BD-R disc (25GB), compared with 46-47 minutes with conventional 2x recording. Of course, the drive’s support for reading of HD DVD-ROM (SL and DL) media is also among the main strengths of the device.

..HLDS has built a reliable drive that goes beyond your usual needs. Although the device is considered as a premium product that could attract demanding users only, it could be a good replacement for that old DVD burner connected to your high-end PC if you need the Blu-Ray and HD-DVD formats as well. The drive is currently priced at $1200.
