Just few months ago our company as well as my job stood in jeopardy because of the corruption of our accounting system's data base which i stood as the owner of server pc. They suspected that i overloaded my computer that cause that system failure. Well, good thing an IT friend defended me and tell them how huge the file of our system is making every day for such a low specs computer that they issued to me. He even recommended that i should have drive to do back up.
I had requested a DVD drive from our IT department for securing back up files. I had to mention DVD cause i really have a lot of huge file to burn from time to time. Luckily it was approved and my friend from tech support had looked for this LG GH22NS40 Super Multi quote. Of course i had to asked him why he thinks that LG GH22NS40 Super Multi is his better recommendation.
Then he began to justify few good things about this driver that the other brand doesn't give or have. He just speaks a lot but all are just a crap cause i just cant visualized or relate to his story. It seems that you really can't tell how good or bad a product is if you haven't experienced it first.
Anyway, after a week of waiting our supplier came with my new LG GH22NS40 Super Multi drive.
LG GH22NS40 Super Multi was installed right away to my computer and so i start burning back up files like burning files of over 5 years ago. I did spent my whole day that day just burning and operating this LG GH22NS40 Super Multi.
Here are some technical specification of LG GH22NS40 Super Multi i found in its package that might be helpful to you. I am not a technical person and so this doesn't help me much although i do understand some of them but generally i am ignorant about this specs.

So much for that numbers and back to my experience.
I was able to use LG GH22NS40 Super Multi drive to burn not only file data but as well as personal videos and photos. Actually, i have 80GB hard disk and 80% of my files are media format files such as 3gp, AVI, MP3, MP4 and a likes.
Another good thing about LG GH22NS40 Super Multi is the ease of its installation. I had no problem with LG GH22NS40 Super Multi drive installation. Although i am not an IT person, i could still comprehend this drivers installation's instruction written on its manual and do the installation by myself.
It was also a blessing to me for with LG GH22NS40 Super Multi, I was able to listen to music with my favorite CD or watch movies during my break times.
However, I also observed some flaws with this LG GH22NS40 Super Multi.
My computer's O.S. is window 98SE and I use nero express to burn files but there are some problem that i encounter with this LG GH22NS40 Super Multi.
The biggest problem i ever observed with this product is it could hardly read the file that you burn. Every time you i burn a file, the tray will automatically open to released my disc. After i burn a file, the next thing to do is check if the burn file was saved on my CD. So i had to put it back again and check its properties.
The thing is, it is taking me so much of my time opening and ejecting CD until my computer recognized my CD. There are even times that this can't read some of my CDs. I don't know if the problem is with the CD's (which i don't think so because we are using expensive and high quality CDs from imation) or with the device itself but this should not be the case since it was included list of its supported CD format and Media types. I think they really should improve that.
Another thing is, I am not satisfied with its writing speed. There are other devices like this in our company and they could burn faster.
Anyway, despite of these flaws i still found this device very helpful and right now we are at very good terms since my company and i really need it service. Maybe if they could allot bigger budget for me i could request for faster device but as of now, I'll stick with my LG GH22NS40 Super Multi for another 2 years time.
Online price of this product is raging from £ 15.00-£ 18.00 Just one more advice: Please look for suppliers that offers warranty for more secure buy. I hope this helps.
