Good, a bit slow

Rory O., Newegg
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Worth the money over a regular dvd/cd. Extra
  • Pros: Use primarily to burn data disks. Has held up over the years with no issues
  • Cons: Burn time is a bit slow. Faster speeds now. Takes quite awhile to burn a full data disc.

  • Summary: Glad it's dead so that I can move on. Not buying an LG product like this any more.
  • Pros: When it was at it's best, it played Blu Rays on the first try.
  • Cons: It died after about 3 years. Not too bad, but I couldn't shake the feeling that it was never really "supported". I could never update the firmware, and as others have already said, a search through the LG site makes you think it's not really an LG product. Between the non-support of the product a...

No Drivers = No Bluray

Gabriel S., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Summary: hopefully i'll never have this problem again on future disk reading-purchases.
  • Pros: Well it plays DVDs just fine
  • Cons: have never been able to play BluRay, even when tryin to use it on WMP or VLC. Without the software this is pretty much an expensive DVD Player. Tried searching for the product online to see about getting some drivers or software to let me watch my blu-rays, nothing.

Hi-Res Movies!

Michael M., Newegg
26 April 2013
  • Summary: I have not tried to burn a Blu-ray disc yet; none of my friends have them and I don't have much call for making discs in general. Flash drives have taken over that spot.
  • Pros: It's been great finally being able to watch the few Blu-ray movies I've been given. It's also performed admirably ripping CDs, installing software, and burning a DVD or two.
  • Cons: I wound up getting newer software for showing movies than what came with. Your call.

7 July 2012
  • Summary: Have been using LG products in home and professional builds for many years. Never an issue. Still no problem with this box, but zero support or even a reference to the PN on LG.COM is a major disapointment to a company whos products I have otherwise had nothing but good experiences with, hence 1-egg...
