Summary: Ordered model GH24NSB0B, was shipped model GH24NSC0 instead. Drive is quick, and quiet. Burns 16x DVD-R discs at 24x. Some disc burning programs (DVD Flick, CD Burner XP) generate "drive not available" error messages unless the tray is opened and closed again with a disc ready to burn, even though...
Summary: I bought this DVD drive back in May of 2014 and have only used a couple of times and now that I needed to burn a DVD, it stopped in the middle of the operation and won't work anymore. I've tried with different DVDs both blank and movies and none will work.
Excerpt: The price was good and it worked good until the smoke came out of it. 7 months into a 1 year warranty and LG will not make it good. They said that my computer burned it up. Funny computer is still working.
It would be nice if they put some software with it.
Summary: No reason to give this DVD drive any less than 5 stars. It is simple, plug and play, and hasn't had any difficulty reading any discs I have put into it. I am able to rip DVD movies with a 3rd party program for my personal use in about 15 minutes. The rips have had no skips or issues of any sort.
Summary: I got this as a second DVD/CD RW for my machine. The primary DVD/CD RW is the same model and make. It was cheap in price, well made and all of the hardware needed for installation was in the box. It also came with a trial version of Nero... Bottom line.
