Earlier models had a firmware update at lgsolutions.com to unlock rip speed (to go from 2x to 5x). There seems to be no firmware update for this model YET, but past history shows it's possible. However, I saw that it does read and write at 12x which isn't too bad. I found a spec sheet on the drive on their site: http://www.lgsolutions.com/__down...1117pr.pdf
