Summary: I have a LG WH08LS20 8x Blu-ray and have burned about 6 disks so far using the stock software that LG provides and using Verbatim 25 GB and 50GB disks and they performed fine. There was a problem burning one disk, but it wasn't the fault of the disk, it was the fault of the LG software, after i fixed my filenames it worked fine. My first few disks i burned at 4x but i burned the rest at 6x no problem.
Summary: If your DVD/Blu Ray/DivX/mp3 library is ANYTHING like mine, you've crossed well over into your neighbour's backyard when it comes to storing DVD disks and your mp3 collection can't fit onto 4 of those Apple iPod 120GB classics. So, this is the next best thing - Blu Ray disks at 25 or 50 GB per disk. Installation: Typical installation as any other DVD/CD drive. The most time consuming part of the process is opening the computer case.

Summary: I purchased this burner for my new gaming system and I have no complaints. It runs quietly while working and the software that comes with it is pretty good. Sorry I can't say more but I've only owned it for about a month.
Summary: This is a truly superb buy on a great product. I have had zero problems with the drive. Use it as an external drive on my Mac Pro. Does a super job on discs with no frisbees. Caveat: Blu-Ray discs must be immaculate when you go to burn them. Leave unburned discs in the cake box and do NOT handle the surface under any circumstances.
