LG Blu-Ray/HD DVD Drives

LG today launched the second generation of its Super Multi Blue computer drives, boosting their performance and also making next-generation formats more readily affordable. The GGW-H20LI (pictured) is claimed to be one of the fastest Blu-Ray devices yet, burning both single- and dual-layer discs at a 6X rate that will complete a two-hour movie in 20 minutes. LG further adds HP's LightScribe technology for writing labels directly to the discs themselves. As with the earlier H10NI, the drive is read-only for HD DVD but writes dual-layer DVDs and CDs. It should be available soon for $500.

A second model, the GGC-H20LI, represents LG's first proper Blu-Ray combo drive and includes all the above features minus Blu-Ray burning in the name of a lower price. It ships at the same time as the GGW version for $400.
