GG, LG...Not really.

  • Summary: Considering the rating for this drive, and the quality of LG's internal disc drives, I figured it would be a safe bet to use this as the disc drive for the mini PC I put together. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.

I've used it for ripping CD's and installing PC games and it's been just fine. It's also pretty quiet for a CD/DVD drive

  • Summary: I tried a SAMSUNG one before this and it just kept disconnecting and reconnecting. I've had no issues with this LG one. I've used it for ripping CD's and installing PC games and it's been just fine. It's also pretty quiet for a CD/DVD drive.

Inexpensive and works well

Dave, B&H Photo
31 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Good product. Light (so light, it feels like I'm going to break it each time I open it or load a disc) and very simple to use/start up. Great deal for the price. Inexpensive and does what it advertises. Nothing fancy, just a good disc reader/writer.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
  • Cons: Feels Flimsy

Not Happy

SPP, B&H Photo
27 May 2015
  • Excerpt: No complaint about B&H, but a complaint about the product. Purchased drive, connected it to two computers (Windows 7 & and Windows 8.1). The drive received power, but neither computer would recongize the drive. I called LG.
  • Pros: Very Slim And Portable
  • Cons: Didn't Work

Great USB drive

Glenn Campbell Jr., Amazon
17 May 2015
  • Summary: Plugged into USB port and unit was immediately found and drivers installed by W 8.1. Didn't need the enclosed cd drivers. Also the single USB 3.0 supplied enough voltage to drive this unit without need of Y connector.

Good Stuff

Alan J., Newegg
25 April 2015
  • Summary: Bought this when I took the optical drive out of my laptop (as I hardly used it since Netflix) and replaced it with a BU HDD (mechanical, to go with the main SSD). I still occasionally need a CD DVD drive and this does the trick.
  • Pros: Slim, fast enough. Price was right.
  • Cons: M discs are expensive and hard to find.

Not bad!

Mark T., Newegg
24 April 2015
  • Summary: Have only used it to install windows 7 so far. Haven't tried writing yet, and I hope it lasts a long time.
  • Pros: Reads faster than the last USB powered optical drive that I've used. Sounds and performs almost as fast as an internal drive!
  • Cons: Haven't noticed any Cons yet.
