Why Has it Scored 87?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 86%, based on 142 reviews.
This optical disc drive is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer dvd rewriters with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This LG optical disc drive has some great features:
Very fast CD-R write speed
Very fast DVD-R read speed
Fast DVD-R double layer write speed
Very fast DVD-ROM read speed
Key features - max. 24x DVD-R write speed
M-DISC support
0.5MB buffer memory

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each optical disc drive by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the optical disc drive is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec optical disc drives come to market, the older optical disc drives will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
