LG 4040b DVD-burner media

A very comprehensive table of media (Maxell/Sony/TDK..) for the so called "4x" LG 4040b burner,

http://www.pics1.de/4040B.html

Depening on media and disc type you will get anything from 1x to 2x to 2.4x to 4x burn speed.

Hi there,
Are you happy with this burner Magnus?
I'm very close to bying it (or even the new LG4081 which is already sold in Japan 8x +R).
Can you give some impression - is it compatible with Vegas and DV architect if you work with them for example.
Drive noise, error rate, etc.
Thank you,
Bogdan

Bang for the buck...

CHIP, germanys biggest computer mag, compared 10 multi-units and the 4040b (120 euros) was rated as number 2, after the winner plextor 708A (200 Euros)
http://www.chip.de/artikel/c_artikelunterseite_10973088.html?tid1=9244&tid2=0

I'm very happy with the unit, not too noisy, writes 4.7GB DVD-RAM at 3x, installs with standard WinXP ASPI-drivers, works fine with Nero 6.0, is recognized but not officially supported by Vegas DVD Architect (but I use DVDlab which is outstanding for USD 99 with effortless / wizards for motion menus and chapter menus )

"Slow" 32x CD read, but writes a DVD-R in 14 minutes,
and a DVD-RW which it writes at 1x speed (duh..) plays well in the Dansai DVD-player...

Highly recommended.
