Summary: Works great! I installed it in the computer and when I turned it on, it recognized the unit immediately and I was able to start using it.. It was well packaged in bubble wrap and a heavy gauge cardboard box. Others have stated it is noisy. I don't find that to be true.
Summary: When I tried to Start PC it would not POST after very long hanging time. Disconnect this LG drive; PC boots fine. Tried 3, SATA cables & 2 different port on Motherboard same hang would not complete BIOS, POST.
Pros: Nice paper weight, fills holes in PC case Would not even give it 1 egg if I did not have to. Run - do not walk to another drive.
Cons: Unreliable - failed to work after about 2 dozen uses on an extra PC. MFG Oct. 2012, Would not let PC BOOT - caused PC to hang 10 to 15 minuets while starting.
Summary: Buy something else. I have never had a DVD/ CD drive just role over and play dead before. The fact that it stopped the PC from booting would lead me to believe something shoted-outr on the control board. I tried new SATA cable and 2 different SATA ports, it is definitely a dead drive.
Pros: When it worked it was adequate but not specifically good at being quick or quiet.
Cons: DIE in less than 2 years; was used less than 3 dozen time in a secondary PC. My PCs are protected by UPS to prevent surge of unstable voltage issues and I always follow proper anti-static discharge procedure. So, their is no reasonable reason after so ;little use that this LG 24X DVD drive decide...
Summary: I wanted to combine my DVD burner and CD Burner to eliminate 2 pieces of hardware in my case. Now here's an SATA combo burner and the price was perfect. No the price was incredible, free shipping and no minimum purchase amount tied to that either. Shipped right away and it works perfectly.
Summary: Works great! I purchase to replace a HP drive that failed. Installed the drive, powered up the computer, burned a dvd and verified it read the data. I did read where one reviewer had problems and was not able to get support from LG. I did register with LG on their site with no problem.

Summary: I purchased this disc drive as a component in a gaming build and for the price, i couldn't have asked for anything better. This product works just as intended and has had no hiccups at all. It is quiet and fits well with my case.
Summary: My new DVD by LG Electronics, internal rewriter (GH24NS95B-KIT 24X SATA DVD) was delivered sooner than expected, was a simple installation, and was a great buy. This replaced the original DVD in my HP Pavilion 6340f computer.
Summary: As it says on the product description, it is barebones, literally no manual/ manufacturer packaging etc. Arrived wrapped in air bubbled plastic. Also, I had to purchase an extra SATA ata cable to install it so make sure you have a spare.
Pros: Easily installed this to replace a dead dvd drive on an old Gateway GT5432. I haven't really used it much. But it still works after a year and a half. If all you need is a basic cd/dvd rom drive with burning capabilities this is it.
