The Korean company also launched the GSA-2164D, which features the same specifications with the GSA-2166D, except LighScribe.
In addition to having write speeds of 16x DVD+/- R, 8x DVD +/- RW, 6x DVD-RW, 5x DVD-RAM and 4x DVD-R DL, both of these units also support a 8x DVD+R DL write speed. Note that the recently reviewed LG's GSA-4167 managed DVD+R DL write speeds of 6x.
Both GSA-2166D and GSA-2164D will be available through worldwide retaillers for $220-250 and $180-200, respectively. For all those who need a stylish device next to their PC, the LG burners could be a good buy, despite their higher than usual price.
