If you’re in the market for an external DVD-Writer, this is the drive for you!

LG Super Multi GSA-E10L detailed review

Speedy backups!

LG’s latest external DVD-Writer, the Super Multi GSA-E10L, has all the features you’d expect in its internal counterparts. The drive is housed in a ruggedly-constructed silver and black polymer casing, and seems strong enough to withstand rough usage. It looks decent, weighs just 1.26 kg, and can be carried around easily.

If you’ve got a lot of Hollywood DVDs and are worrying about how to back them up, forget lossy compression techniques! The Super Multi lets you back up uncompressed 8.5 GB dual-layer DVDs to dual-layer media at speeds as high as 10x!

With 16x speeds for DVD±R, it is one of the fastest external DVD-Writers available. Video editing professionals and enthusiasts will love this drive because of its ability to write to DVD-RAM at a very speedy 12X. You can even drag and drop data to a DVD-RAM as conveniently as to a hard drive without the need for special software. The drive is LightScribe-enabled.

The interface is USB 2.0. The drive performed on par with its internal counterparts. It could write 4.5 GB on both the sequential as well as the assorted DVDs in less than 6 minutes, while a 700 MB assorted CD-R took around 3 minutes.

The drive comes with an impressive software bundle—Nero Burning ROM in addition to CyberLink’s PowerProducer (a premium DVD authoring software) and PowerDVD for DVD playback.

You can adapt the drive to newer media by updating its write strategy via firmware upgrades from the Internet. One negative is that there’s no one-touch backup functionality. The price is a bit high, but then, external drives have always been more expensive than internal ones. If you’re in the market for an external DVD-Writer, this is the drive for you!
