Summary: Needed to pick this up as a replacement burner. It did a very nice job for the first few batches of DVD's but has since slowed down. Granted, we've owned it for a few years and have burned numerous discs with it, but the only aspect of it that we never could get to properly work was the lightscribe. We're not sure if this was a flaw with the product, or the software but being as it wasn't important at the time of purchase so we didn't find it to be a big deal.
Summary: This burner is very fast at reading and writing. I am very pleased with it. I have had no problems with any of it. I will probably never use the Lightscribe feature so I can't comment on that.
Summary: If you're looking for a blu-ray burner for your PC, don't overlook this. It was a lower cost burner, but works flawlessly. I use it with Nero and have never had a failure. I burn DVDs and Blu-Rays with HD video content frequently. I can count on this drive. I recommend it.

Summary: I was converting my old VCR tapes to making DVDs but had to use several disk due to the large size. I saw where the Blu-ray disk hold 25 to 50 GB. I purchased this Recorder, new Blu-ray disk and a player. It is the best move I have made in years. I would definitely buy the LG Blu-ray recorder again.
Not what was advertised, but appears to function so far

Summary: The drive appears to function properly and has LightScribe support, but is not the model number advertised. I got a very similar model BD-REWH12LS39. The front bezel had some scratches on it right out of the box, which I don't really care about, as long as the drive is NEW and not refurbished, a minor cosmetic flaw at worst, which is not a 'deal breaker' for me.
Nice and Sleek and Awesome Value that's does the job of the High End!

Summary: Want the best of the best but keep money in your wallet at the same time? This Lifes Grand Blu-Ray, CD/DVD, R/RW/ yadda yadda yadda - is one loaded baby that can take you for one heck of a ride! Just a note that this IS WINDOWS 7 / 8 compatible and it is not necessary to use the disk to install; you can insert any media after you've installed this new unit in and removal of old unit - and Windows 7 / 8 will then detect it.
