Summary: I have had this 15 months now and it developed a problem. At the 13 month point, it doesn't always grip the disk placed inside of it and the sound that comes out rom it is like they disk is being ripped up inside of the drive. I have to turn it off and on a number of times as I have it in a external enclosure numerous times to get it to grip. I haven't dropped the enclosure at all.
Summary: Took less than 48 hrs from ordering to arrival. Excellent. Fitted the writer into my computer with no problems. Burnt my first Blu Ray disks yesterday.(LG and Intenso). Used Pinnacle Studio Editing System, Good quality picture. Very pleased.
Summary: Have just upgraded my computer and was pleased to include this drive. All seems well so far. Haven't tried the lightscribe yet but so far have burnt DVD's & Blu-ray disks. It lost a star because the blank LG Blu-ray-RE disk that comes with it does not work in this drive!!! After much head scratching I purchased a Sony Blu-ray-RE disk. At £7 including postage I was worried that the drive might be faulty and that this new Sony disc may go the same way as the LG one.
Summary: I have bought this drive 4 months ago and can only say positive things about it. Plays all types of disk I through at it. Burning all types of disks as well (with latest firmware) but with the exception of one brand LG BD-RE disks. The drive just doesn't recognise these. The disk it came with is exactly one of these and guess what LG's customer support has never sent me a replacement disk to keep a customer happy! Maybe because they know that all their disks are rubish.
Excerpt: "Although LG is not the leading names in both computer hard ware and software production but they have some thing really to offer in this their LG GGW multi blue precisely. The LG drive is capable of copying and reading information's as fast as it can and on the other hand the DVD play back. I got this specifically for writing and duplicating plates. CD writing has been a convenient stuff for me since I got this. I won't emphasize on the drive ...
Summary: As the others, yes nice drive, decent software Cyberlink hi-def suite with the retail version too which is lacking with some drives, this drive writes blu ray but the GGCH i think it is only plays blu ray, mission finding that out!! Other thing to mention is it doesn't upscale dvd's like a lot of blu ray players do, other than that it is very nice, looks a lot better than the pioneer one that came with my new pc, blu led too which is a nice touch & matches my new setup,...
Summary: Durch den Kauf eines Blue Ray Players sollten auch entsprechende Blue Ray Scheiben durch mich selber bespielt werden können. Dazu benötigte ich einen internen Brenner, der dieses Format unterstützt. Der Markt bietet hier keine besonders große Auswahl und die Preise sind nicht gerade billig. Nun bin ich bei Amazon fündig geworden und habe mir einen gebrauchten- mit dem Prädikat wie neu- gekauft.
