Summary: Purchased and used this unit for 10 months with my Mac Mini with no issues. It then stopped working. After spending two weeks with LG initiating a warranty repair, including going through diagnostic steps over the phone, emailing my receipt as proof of purchase, and waiting for a shipping label they said must have been caught in my spam filter, they decided it was Apples fault the player stopped working, and would not even take the unit in for inspection.
Summary: It states on the box that it will record standard quality video into HD blu ray format. It is false. It does not enhance the quality of any video, unless you are copying blu ray to blu ray. It would have been nice if I was able to record some of my HD programs on to this unit from my DVR so i got actual HD recordings than some slow burner that does nothing to enhance the video I already have.
Pros: Quiet. and its an LG.
Cons: Its slow to record blu rays, does not enhance standard quality video as stated on the box
