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.

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.

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.
Summary: If you plan to use light scribe multimedia with this product, don't buy it. Even though it says on the box "supports lightscribe," the software does not recognized the driver. I send it back to be reviewed for an LG technician, but when I got it back, it still none of the softwares recognize it. About the rest of the features, I have no trouble with.
Summary: I bought this burner for two main reasons, the Blu Ray burning and the LightScribe feature. I have not burned any Blu Ray discs yet, mostly just DVD-R and all the burns have been successful. The LightScribe on the other hand has not been so great. The burner/software fails to detect my HP LightScribe discs about 1 out of 5 times; no matter how many times I retry.
Excerpt: Da mein Notebook über kein internes Blu-ray Laufwerk bzw. keinen integrierten Blu-ray-Brenner verfügt, ich aber einen solchen brauche, entschied ich mich für den Kauf eines externen Brenners, der diese Funktion aufweist. In einem Saturn entdeckte ich den… Dieser sagte mir sowohl in optischer Hinsicht als auch bezüglich der Leistungsmerkmale und des Preises zu.
Pros: Das Design, die Verarbeitung, die Funktionalität, die brennbaren Medien, die "Laufruhe", der Preis
Cons: Kurzes USB - Kabel, zu groß für mobilen Betrieb, großes Netzteil
