Worth the money

  • Excerpt: I am completely satisfied with this product. It is lightweight and easy to install on my computer. For such a slim and lightweight rewriter it performs at the same or better level than more expensive and larger units. I highly recommend purchasing this item if looking for an external rewriter. Much more convenient than replacing an intertnal drive !
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction

  • Summary: I read previous review before I bought it, but this DVD writer is extremely loud and for that reason I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The tray seems to be loose and therefore vibrates up and down, making lots of noise. The music would play okay but it had to compete with the noise of the writer.

Works great for me...now.

  • Summary: I used a longer USB cable than the one that came with it but the drive didn't work, so I tried the one that came with it and everything worked fine. Could have been a bad cable, I bought it a the Dollar Store. Haven't tried any others yet, but I probably will. The only bummer was that the add from the store claimed it did Blu-Ray too. It doesn't and nothing in the materials that came with it say anything about Blu-Ray compatibility.
  • Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality

Does not work on 27" iMac!

Gum, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
3 July 2014
  • Summary: DESPITE saying everywhere on box and online that it works on OSX, my iMac doesn't see it, even after restarts etc.! Also, it does appear very solid isn't very solid. For example, the lead just ell out of the back socket when I lifted the device and its isn't very robust feeling. Not a happy customer at all.
  • Pros: Quality, imac, osx

Inneffective Coaster

toastwarrior, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: This product is non-functional. It worked once and never again. The light glows briefly, then stops and shuts off as my (windows 8, and less than a year old) computer refuses to recognize the device. Also, LG constantly badgers me about updates. Oh wow... I totally want all these awesome updates from a company that apparently produced a CD drive that doesn't work. Either mine is defective, or this particular product was intended as a decorative item.

  • Summary: I can not get mpg4 files to auto play. I can put the same DVD in a desktop and it plays. I've tried everything I know but no success. I can read files on it and manually play some files but no auto play.

Gets the job done

  • Pros: Small, light, rips and burns disks.
  • Cons: Mac users: First, thanks Wesley J. (1/11/2014) for the workaround on the empty drive not being recognized by the Mac Finder when empty. Here's an even more convenient workaround. (I'm using it with a Mac Mini):
