What’s inside the box?
Since the drive is a bulk drive, there is neither retail box nor any software. Below you will see the contents of the bulk drive:
Now it’s time to take a look at the drive itself:
The front is slight, and has an eject button, an emergency eject hole and a LED (green – for read and write – we prefer a different LED colour though for writing). The logos located on the loading tray include the Super Multi logo, a DVD Alliance DVD+R DL logo, the LG logo, a DVD Forum DVD-Multi Recorder logo, and a CD-RW Ultra Speed logo.
On top of the drive we found one sticker, and we can read it was manufactured in China (bottom left), dated July 2005.
On the back of the drive there are from the left: reserved connector; analogue audio connector; pins and jumper to set the drive to cable select, slave or master; IDE connector, and a power connector.
Now, let us install the drive and check out the features on the next page…
