Nice Product, Plays DVD Movies

Evan, Amazon

  • Summary: The LG Electronics 8X USB 2.0 Slim Portable DVD Drive is a great product! I was looking for a product that I could play DVD movies* and PC games on, since my laptop did not come with a DVD port. I got this product on time, plugged it in to a USB port on my laptop, and it worked!

Works on Linux and windows machines with little effort, a fantastic super cheap light-duty little portable device.

  • Summary: Bought this LG GP50NB40 burner/player as I needed some light duty drive for my laptop which came sans dvd. This thing sure is the lightest and most fragile-seeming drive I've ever seen. Don't think I would just toss it in my laptop bag without some sort of hard case.

DVD's play terribly. Skipping and lagging

Carrie, Amazon

  • Summary: After downloading all of the programs to attempt to have the drive work, DVD's play terribly. Skipping and lagging, the audio continues most of the time, but the video is way off. I've tried several DVD's---and it's the drive.

  • Summary: My laptop did not have a DVD drive, so I couldn't play the computer games I have. With this drive, I can once again play them again. The drive works great and I use it every day.

Worked Flawlessly

  • Summary: Have three different machines, 2 win 7s and an XP. Worked without a hitch on all three. I use the XP to copy and burn DVDs, the 7s t burn - and the drives has worked with no problems. I like the fact that it has only one USB cable whereas the one it replaced had two and could be a hassle.

  • Summary: I purchased this to assist in installing Windows software on my MacPro. This made it very easy to install right from the DVD. I got it on sale for $21 with free shipping and found it to be the perfect addition to my Tech Stuff.

  • Summary: No real problems or benefits. This is a pretty simple item so I am not sure there is a lot to say. Not a lot of bells and whistles to talk about for the product.
