plugged it in and it worked.

Steve Petrosino, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I plugged in this eSATA drive and it was immediately available. Needed something that could read Blu-Ray disks. It does. I have not had a chance to write on any blank media yet so I cannot testify to its write performance. I like the touch eject button. LG came through on this one.

Successfully Burned Blu-Ray on First Try

Lester L. Preiss, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: The software and drive worked without any difficulties in conjunction with Adobe Encore. My laptop e-SATA link works very fast with the drive. I'm not sure about the software continually asking for user input every time I booted up - so I turned it off; don't have the time. It plays beautiful BR on my HD TV through laptop.

The ability to make your own blu-ray's makes Capacity and hd quality available to the average person.

CJ, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: What can I say it makes blu rays. The drive is extremely quick and holds maximum write speed through almost the entire burn. I have it hooked up through e-sata. Hooking this device up to usb 2.0 would be a sin, and would almost certainly take forever to get anything done anyway. This device does NOT support usb 3.0. I tried it usb just as a test using a dvd+r and it was taking way too long. Attached to estata this drive is blazing fast.

Works like a dream on a MAC

MAC users, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I am using this on a MAC book pro with Leopard Snow (OS 10.6.8) and it works like a dream. No software needed to install to make this work. Just plug in the USB and insert a DVD or BluRay and you see the drive in your Finder. I recommend this to all MAC users out there.

Impressed

Bob, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: This model is the 12x LG BE12LU38. arrived in good condition. Tasteful white on black design. Using esata connection. so far burned 2 discs. Optical Quantum 2X 25GB BD-RE Blu-ray Blank Disc Logo Top, 10 pack and one Maxell Blu-ray Rewritble Dual Layer 50GB 1-2X . success with both on first try using imgburn. Ps3 users make sure you uncheck 'prefer format without space areas' for 50gb discs. Looking forward to trying some 6x bd-r 25gb discs for quicker speed.

The Jury Is Still Out UPDATE: DO NOT BUY THIS BURNER!!!

John R, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: After I received this burner, it worked perfectly for approximately 20 hours of use. It then failed to be recognized by my Win 7 or Win 8 computer. When plugged in, it made a re-cycling clicking noise. I called LG support and reached this fellow who was written up in a previous comment: "I called LG customer service today and of course the phone was answered by an Indian. He was like a defense lawyer, catching everything I said and blamed me doing things wrong.

An External BD/DVD Read/Writer that does everything to BD &DVD

RASTERBIT, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I began by mistakenly ordering two(2) units from J&R through Amazon. I had to call Amazon's customer service quickly to change my order. The service people at Amazon were very polite and handled my order problem with no hassles. So, only one(1)LG-BE12LU38 was going to show up at my door. It came by regular ground within the time frame posted.

Looks sharp, works great, plays Blu-ray movies with included software

D. Snow, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: This drive looks very striking in black & white, and feels heavy and well-built. It's about 10.5 inches long, so you will need some space on your desktop. The front eject button is touch-sensitive, so don't make the mistake I did and press it hard. PowerDVD 10 software is included, and it can play Blu-ray and even Blu-ray 3D movies. They offer a discount to upgrade, for only $39 you can get the latest and greatest PowerDVD 12 Ultra.
