LG also brings 40x burners
The new 40x burner from LG Electronics is now available. The GCE-8400B is supplied with the Nero and InCD burning software and costs € 179. The drive burns CD-Rs at 40x speed. CD-RWs are written at 4, 10 or 12 times the speed.
CD-ROMs themselves are also read at 40 times the speed. The average access time is 100 ms. The LG burner is equipped with a 2 MB buffer and the Buffer Underrun Proof technology 'SuperLink', which can iron out errors at the high writing speeds. On the front of the drive there is a stop/eject button, two power LEDs, a volume control, a stereo headphone jack and the emergency eject hole. The drive is delivered in the retail version with the CD burning software, a 40-pin ribbon cable, an audio cable, screws and user manual.
