Summary: Overall this is a solid buy. The drive works as advertised I tested it buy playing a couple of blu-ray movies and both looked amazing and the playback was very smooth. The only gripe I have is that the bluray controls are not mouse compatible, I had to use my keyboard to navigate through the menus. I will look to see if there is a fix for this issue and update this review later.
Summary: I received the drive and the accompanying cables and software. I shut down the computer, put the mounting rail on one side of the drive, took the blank off the case slot, put the drive in, hooked up the power and sata cable, and powered back up. It recognized the drive. Installed the software and rebooted and everything worked that I could test. Haven't seen if it can play BluRay movies, I haven't any.
Summary: I purchased this drive as my first entry into Blue-ray movie making. I install this drive into an external enclosure with a USB 2.0 interface. My first attempt was a coaster. Adobe Premiere 9.0 produced a "chapter overflow" error after 8 hours of encoding. Called Adobe and try to resolve the problem, no luck. As a last ditch effort, I try to update the firmware. The firmware update for this drive is not available from the regular LG site.
Summary: Realmente producto muy bueno con buenas características y buen aspecto físico. Te entregan todo lo que te ofrecen: -Unidad principal -Cable Sata -Cable de poder -Software -Manual de Instrucciones (en español) -Certificado de garantía. Muy bien empacado y a tiempo. La instalación resulta realmente fácil, plug and play. Ojo: no viene con tornillos de sujeción a la torre. Reproduce y quema discos: DVD, BluRay, CD.
Summary: Terrific Features for the price, including Lightscribe...or so everyone mentions. I'll try that feature later. Installed on my win 7 64-bit system without any issues along with provided software. Another reviewer mentioned issues after updating firmware, but i did not experience any issues. Only real downside is that you'll want to upgrade PowerDVD 8 to 10 right away if you want to play the most recent blue-rays. ..
Summary: The player works fine, but you will need to buy the necessary software for playback. Computer OS I have is Windows 7 Home.... I wasn't sure if the player was working until I bought the necessary software online. I choose DVDfab plus for backups...
Error: This software can only be installed with a LG(HLDS) device. The setup will abort."

Summary: I am running a self-built system with Windows 7 Ultimate. Shipping was good - I took the free shipping route, ordering the product on Sunday and received it on Friday. I was pretty excited when I got the package and quickly installed it into my system. Installation time was about 10 minutes. Windows recognized the drive and installed drivers for it automatically and the drive was immediately ready for use.
