Summary: Performs exactly as advertised. Optical drives are pretty much commodities these days and the only time they are noticed is if they do not perform to specifications. No problems with this drive which is my 4th or 5th LG drive for various builds with no historical issues.
Summary: I bought this bundle thinking I could watch my blu rays on my pc without switching the hdmi to my ps4. The software cd provided is extremely outdated and only plays blu rays that were released a few years ago.
Pros: Unit works well. Unfortunately, when I ordered this for my "expensive system" I neglected to notice that while this is rated as a Blu-ray drive, and does write disks - it does not write Blu-ray disks. Oh, it writes ever thing else, but not Blu-Ray. Reads them, but doesn't write. I'm not sure why ...
Cons: Does not WRITE Blu-Ray disks, even though if writes everything else. Difficult to tell that part without going into specifications.
Pros: There is nothing wrong with this device. It burns/reads DVDs, CDs, and reads BluRay. Works to specs. Nice brushed metal exterior with black finish.
Cons: I give this 5 eggs because I should have read the specs more closely. I thought I saw a BluRay burner on sale, so I bought it. This should have been more prominent, in my opinion. Again, no product defects, just disappointed.
Summary: I Own the UH12NS29. I guess it was sitting on the shelf for a while. I'm using Windows 7 Pro. It worked OK after I did the firmware upgrade. The software that came with it didn't work that great, but when I got different software it worked fine! It burns fine, but playback on computer is grainy.
And the thing works beautifully now. I had a bunch of headaches

Summary: I had a rather odd problem. Whenever I'd insert a disk into this drive after installation, my system would freeze up. The only way to unfreeze it would be ejecting the drive, sometimes manually with the pinhole release.
Summary: The blu ray player itself seems to work fine. But the Power DVD 10 software that came with it is a PoS. I have installed uninstalled, and re-installed the software several times and it still does not work properly.
