Nick I agree. I have been a long time Plextor user, there drives never break down on me (and I burn A LOT!) and they have had good customer service. I have been very impressed with LG recently. It seems everything they touch they do good at. I'm wishing I had bought the 24" LG monitor instead of spending the same on the 28" HannsG...the picture on the LG would have been much sharper.
Anyway, I am seriously looking at that exact same LG drive for my HTPC, just waiting for a company to come out with a Vid card that will pass audio through HDMI and still do good gaming
