The GCC-4520B's integration of functions of a typical CD-RW drive together with the functions of a DVD-ROM drive have a number of benefits. The typical PC has 2 IDE connectors for internal drives, allowing a maximum of 4 devices. The combination GCC-4520B only uses one IDE connector, freeing up space for other devices. The same is true for the limited drive bays on the front of today's PC's, with the GCC-4520B doing double duty with only one drive bay.

The LG GCC-4520B comes hot on the heels of the popular GCC-4480B, which was named PC World Magazine's Best Buy in the June 2003 issue, as well as winning the PC World 2003 World Class Award for best CD-RW Drive listed in the July 2003 issue of PC World Magazine. Installation of the new GCC-4520B is quick and easy, and is compatible with Windows XP, 2000, 98SE and ME. Incorporating buffer underrun error prevention technology and optimized recording speed for each media used, writing to discs is always accurate and swift. The GCC-4520B has fast UDMA33 data transfer, and is also Mount Rainier compliant for true drag and drop file copying. The retail kit GCC-4520B comes with Ahead Software's Nero CD recording and authoring software and Cyberlink's PowerDVD MPEG-2 software application for playing DVD movies. A two-drive E-IDE cable, audio cable and instructions are also supplied.

As with all LG optical storage drives such as CD-RW, combo CD-RW/DVD, DVD-ROM drives and DVD Super Multi writers, there is a one-year peace of Mind warranty. Cross-ship 2-day advance replacement service is also available. LG drives are consistently recognized for their superior performance and value.
