More about which optical drive better
  1. as power consumption, i have no idea

    but from looking at the spec, it looks like LG has a faster speed on some of the parts...

    you definitely get what you pay for... but sometimes i would just got with the cheaper drive since its not the biggest deal for me.

    you can save money here to spend on something much more :)
  2. Best answer
    lets see, both do light scribe if you use it that is

    samsung read speeds:
    cd 48x
    dvd 16x
    lg read speeds:
    cd 48x
    dvd 16x

    so both are even there

    samsung write speeds
    cd-r 48x
    cd-rw 24x
    dvd-r 22x
    dvd-rw 8x
    dvd+r dual layer 16x
    dvd-r dual layer 12x

    compare to LGs

    cd-r 48x
    cd-rw 32x
    dvd-r 24
    dvd-rw 8x
    (does not list dual layer writing ability on direct canada?)

    i would probably go with the samsung, both should use the same amount of power, it would be negligible i think
  3. well, newegg says the lg's dual layer is 8x for both dvd-r DL and dvd+r dl so the samsung wins the overall speed contest there
