William C., Newegg
7 September 2011
  • Summary: This thing is a gem. Works as intended and well worth the money. As for someone saying it's hard to press the eject button, well, it's sense touch. You don't actually have to press the button. Just touch it.
  • Pros: Fast, quiet, and convenient (USB/eSata).
  • Cons: It wasn't free. You need some desk space for this bad boy.

LG External Bluray Disc Writer

Eric L., Newegg
3 September 2011
  • Pros: First of all, Newegg is awesome....price for drive was substantially lower than anyone else, and free delivery in 2 days is remarkable. I just installed the drive in Lenovo laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. The drive was instantly recognized and installed with no problem and no effort on my ...
  • Cons: I should have made this purchase months ago!

Great burner

Michael S., Newegg
23 July 2011
  • Pros: 1. Fast, Very fast! 2. Quiet, can hardly hear it spinning. 3. Style. I like the white/black look with blue led.
  • Cons: There are no cons to this drive. Yes it is big but that's a stupid reason to remove eggs from the rating. Its the best drive I've used and one of the fastest you will find.

Works Great So Far

Michael G., Newegg
21 July 2011
  • Summary: This is my first Blu-ray burner of any type and my first external burner of any type. I'm using this to archive home videos of my children that I transferred from VHS/VHS-C/Video8 tapes to my PC. These are very large .avi files that are too big to fit on regular DVD's.
  • Pros: Speed - Very fast ... tried my first burn (home video file backup) on Verbatim 25GB 6X BD-R, using the included Cyberlink Power2Go software. It allowed me to burn at 12X speed ... took 10 minutes to write 21GB of data. This was using the eSATA cable connected to my laptop (i7 processor, 6GB memor...
  • Cons: These are very minor issues for me, certainly not enough to regret this purchase. These would have warranted a 4.5 rating if possible, so I had to give it 4 stars instead. Size - it's a little long, but I have enough desk space, so it's no problem. I could save more space by placing it sideways i...

Great Drive

Steven P., Newegg
3 May 2011
  • Summary: Previus reviewer says E-SATA doesn't work, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE DRIVE POWERED UP AND PLUGGED INTO THE COMPUTER BEFORE YOU TURN ON THE COMPUTER!!. Even if hooking up to an E-SATA port the above needs to be followed.
  • Pros: USB & E-SATA support. Fast & Quiet. Includes E-SATA bracket & cable. Generic 12V power adaptor can be used when/if original burns out - no 4 pin plug like some others.
  • Cons: None.

Save your money ! Look at the portable drive here on Newegg

Bernard D., Newegg
10 March 2011
  • Summary: Unless you are looking to whack somebody with it don't buy it. For pete sakes this drive is bigger than any other external drive i've ever seen and I have seen plenty. It's HUGE!!!. You're going to be blown away by its sheer size. Guaranteed I picked up a Sony N82E16827118048 NO REGRETS!
  • Pros: It's an LG, It's fast!
  • Cons: Didn't work with e-sata for me, only recognized via USB. But that is not the problem here, read below.

Super externer Brenner

robert fath, Amazon
7 April 2015
  • Summary: Seit ich den Brenner gekauft habe, funktioniert er einwandfrei. Ich verwende ihn an meinem iMac, da Apple bekanntlich keine Blu Ray Laufwerke verbaut. Er wird sogar vom Betriebssystem erkannt. Ich habe damit schon alle möglichen Medien gebrannt, und bisher hat er keinen Ausschuß produziert.

Guter Brenner mit Lightscribe-Unterstützung

encorefx, Amazon
5 March 2015
  • Summary: Funktionierte anfangseinwandfrei, später musste ich immer Verbatim oder Philips Rohlinge der ersten Generation kaufen, da die neueren Rohling nicht kompatibel waren und immer verbrannt wurden.

Sehr zuverlässig

marher, Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: Habe diesen externen Blueray-Brenner schon einige Zeit und bin sehr zufrieden. Minimale Ausfallquote der gebrannten Rohlinge, eine 100%ige Erfolgsquote ist unmöglich, da die Rohlinge nicht immer Top sind.
