Summary: This is my third time I buy an Optical Drive from LG, and it seems that they will never improve on cd or DVD writers. They don even are giving supports to download the software disc, nor to update firmwares or Drivers. I will return this Drive, it can't read or write any disc. Never again....
Summary: I have had this drive for a couple of years and has been working great. I had a few problems at first but found out it was the cheap media I was using and too high of a speed. I am using Verbatim DVD-R and burning at 8X. Very, very few problems now. Highly recommend this drive!
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: This is a great external burner. It works fast and is very quiet. My only complaint is that if the burn fails it doesn't eject the CD/DVD. The manual eject does not work. I had to unplug the drive and restart my computer to get it to eject.
Summary: Just purchased this product at Best Buy. Installed to my Desktop PC because I like the Lightscribe technology and it makes it easier to store CD/DVD's when you can label them directly. Only issue I have is with the install CD.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
