NEEDS specific media

Harold S., Newegg
16 August 2011
  • Summary: After sitting through and burning my media very slowly, it has given me time to think about why a burner that claims 16x DVD+R DL can only burn at 2.4x. Well, in the little slip of paper (the manual), the brands that LG endorsed for DVD+-R DL are, "Mitsubishi Kagaku Media, Verbatim are recommended.
  • Pros: I have successfully burned both, Memorex 16x DVD+R's and Memorex 8x DVD+R DL's. IF you want to know anything at all about this drive, here is my protip: BUY THE RIGHT MEDIA."
  • Cons: The only trick was, you could never burn the discs at full speed, DVD+R DL's worked when I chose the slowest possible speed: 2.4x out of 8x and the same is true when burning DVD's, I had to lower the burning speed significantly, to avoid the CONSTANT flow of coasters.

  • Summary: Cheap, and works as well as the Litr-On units, but very quiet.
  • Pros: This thing is very quiet, you can't tell by sound if it's burning. It does a very nice job on lightscribe.

Failed after ~6 uses

Michael G., Newegg
28 June 2011
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: It failed after a few months of very light usage. Either it opens for no reason and will not close, or it's unresponsive to the open/close button. I'll warranty it as soon as I get around to opening the case and removing it. LG requires a serial number to open a warranty claim, so can't start unt...

LG DVD Drive has issues

Tony K., Newegg
24 June 2011
  • Summary: Got a firmware update to TL02 version 8, but did nothing to help file issue. Product support is decent, but of no help. Tried new cables but same issue. Drive must be out of warranty, no offers of replacement or exchange. For $22 what should I expect right? Will stick with Samsung...
  • Pros: Fast drive Works well most of the time, reads most DVD's and copies DVD's with Nero just fine.
  • Cons: Balks at reading some converted VHS video-to-DVD files, takes some minutes of running before it finally reads the file and plays it. Samsung SH222AB DVD drive reads same file using same Nero software in seconds. Loud
