Summary: It worked twice and after that it quit. Does not play any CD or DVD. I was going uninstall and reinstall to see if that would make any difference but I can't even get it uninstalled. If I can get this junk off of my computer, it is going into the garbage. I believe that is where it came from before I got it.
Summary: For someone with low technical knowledge, the LG Portable DVD Writer was simple to setup and use. I was worried I would need help to get it going, but it wasn't at all. I am very happy it's ease of use.
Summary: I was fine with my netbook not having a DVD drive...at first. So I decided I needed to buy a tiny portable DVD writer with giant capabilities. Went to Best Buy and found my LG GP40NB40- it was exactly what I wanted. Super easy to install, and it fits in my micro carrying case, too. This travels well on flights, and doesn't draw down my battery too quickly either. I couldn't be happier with it.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
Summary: This little burner is fast and accurate and purely useful asset. I bought it because the internal burner that came with my netbook died. I tried another before this one, but it was sluggish and results were dicey. Not with the LG! And the price was perfect for this burner!
Summary: Got this for my daughter since I got her a netbook to take back and forth to High School everyday. She needed something lightweight. The netbook is Windows 8 and was purchased December 22. We plugged this portable DVD into the netbook (only need one portal plugged in - the cord has two.) and it worked right away. Can download software from here or play movies on netbook when needed but don't have to carry around the extra weight of a the drive.
Summary: Bought this for a Christmas gift, and was very upset to find out that it was all scratched up and didn't work !!! Also, it looked like it had been used before !!!! This was supposed to be NEW !!! Would NOT recommend this !!!
Summary: I bought this when the internal burner on our 3 year-old iMac fizzled out. Seems to work very well (for 6 weeks so far) and, after I figured out a couple of things on my own, it's easy to use now. It accesses Gracenote very quickly! A bit difficult for my older hands to place a cd properly on the tray, and it doesn't feel very well made, but still I would not hesitate to recommend it to others!
Summary: its a great device it writes very fast and you can make a ton of types of formats on blank discs however im having a problem burning movies in the dvd format it says that i have to enter a serial number and i did it just doesnt work but that might just be me
