Great Buy

Anonymous, Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Pros: Purchased when on sale for $79.99 free shipping. Works with Optical Quantum and Windata. Overall nice drive. Vibration is normal for a laptop drive. Has to do with the thickness of some discs, however does not affect performance whatsoever. LG has put out some very good Optical Products. Have not been disappointed yet.

Quality: one warning

Michael H., Newegg
11 October 2013
  • Pros: Unit came in great shape and was a bare drive just like I expected. Neweggs excellent experience was everything I wanted it to be. This is the normal laptop drive format of 12.7 mm which is basically a half inch in depth. I'm sure it performs wonderfully from other reveiws.
  • Cons: Beware if you have a 'thin' laptop. There are plenty of laptop models out there that use a drive that is even slimmer. If the thickest part of your drive's metal casing (without attached bezel [where the eject button is]) is 12.7 mm or a bout a half inch this will fit. If it is less, it will not.

  • Summary: I had been wanting a Blu-Ray player for my notebook. Little did I know I would find one that is also a full writer in the same price range. Easy installation and everything worked on the first try.

Gotta find a mSATA cable

Michael R., Newegg
27 September 2013
  • Summary: Really wish it came with the proper cabling or was at least properly listed on the site as mini-SATA.
  • Pros: I'm sure this will be a great drive, has other outstanding reviews and I've never had a bad LG product.
  • Cons: Partly my fault that I didn't look at the picture of the rear of the drive, but this requires a mini-SATA cable which is NOT included. I'm only deducting 1 egg for this as it's partly my fault and I've yet to read a bad review on this drive.

Another Outstanding LG Product

Tim S., Newegg
2 June 2013
  • Pros: Excellent value; performs all read/write/re-write operations flawlessly thus far, anticipate long-term reliability, given the performance/longevity of my other LG purchases, build quality looks/feels solid, looks aesthetically simple, as such, can make it "work" with basically any system build.
  • Cons: Honestly, I can't think of any. Wait, here goes... ***SPOILER ALERT; nonsense incoming!*** LG, I'm absolutely disgusted and disappointed that you have FAILED to disappoint or disgust me. EVER. This would be an unacceptable, inexcusable, and offensive product, if we lived in an alternate reality, in which absolute nonsense, fiction, and a complete lack of logic prevailed in society (and to the cynics out there... yes, sometimes, I also notice those "alternate realities...
