good, solid drive... but with a bit of oddity...

Graymor, Amazon

  • Summary: Good looking drive, fits nice, no sounds or anything... but... it just has some oddities to it. One thing is the button. I like the sort of unique design of it--kind of like a little bump more than a "button", but you have to push it fairly hard to get it to register. Also, the button does not seem to register for the "close" action. As a result, I have to push the tray to get the close action to take, which I don't like to do.

Failed after a year and a half, but easily fixed

James F, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this drive on March 18, 2013, and used it very infrequently, maybe once a month. I mostly used this as a DVD drive, and occasionally for blue ray discs. Today (Aug 11, 2014) I started up my PC and Windows no longer recognizes the drive, and says the driver cannot be loaded. The error was: Windows cannot load the driver.

Great Blu Ray Drive :)

Roughin' It "Tom", Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: I love this drive. It plays DVD, Blu Ray discs, 3D titles, etc. without breaking a sweat. Plus, it's relatively quiet! It definitely gets a little loud when you're doing heavy-duty CD/DVD/BD ripping, but you have to remember that it's spinning those discs at up to 14x their normal playing rotational speed. That's pretty fast. If you're looking for a full-sized Blu Ray burner drive, I see no reason why you shouldn't buy this one.

Superb!

disgruntled customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Great internal blu ray drive.... I have to say firstly I was timid about trying LG for a computer component, let alone a disk drive. In 2004 I was used to seeing LG Flip phone Cellphones (that's really the first time i saw the name LG). But I see now that they are as big as GE or Maytag. they make washers and dryers, A/C units for houses, Microwaves, tvs, and soo much more... its really incredible...

Sped up my workflow on an average of 30 minutes, and gives me BD-R capabilities...

The Active Geek, Amazon
31 July 2014
  • Summary: Call me lazy, but I hate discs...but love movies. So, I rip all my blu-ray movies to uncompressed MKV files on my home server...so they can be conveniently played back anywhere in the house. Because of this, this drive gets heavy, regular use -- and it performs wonderfully. My previous BD-ROM drive was only 2x..

Drive works great, except for one quirk (and weak documentation.)

Lee Tyler, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Did not buy at Amazon (Fry's - they bought these by the ton for a special price), but I felt impelled to let people know of a potential problem. First, I am 25+ computer programmer/builder, so very comfortable opening up a box and putting something new in, such as this drive. This went into a 3-year old Dell Inspiron desktop.

Great burner

  • Summary: Got this when it went on sale for $49.99 and I think it was a heck of a deal. Works perfectly and burns backups with no issues.

This thing is great; PowerDVD software is garbage

S. M. Pitman, Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: The drive is perfect; that's all you need to know about the hardware. The bundled software (Cyberlink PowerDVD 10) is basically a scam. They periodically stop offering patches to their bundled software to force you to buy upgraded versions. This is fairly well documented. Go ahead and use it while you can, but even now, the bundled software WILL NOT play BluRays released after the middle of 2013. Instead, you will get a message that says it's time to buy the new version.

This product works very well

LGMCN, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
4 May 2014
  • Summary: This product works very well. The only problem I had with it was the fact that it did Not come with any software. I purchased it as a stand-alone OEM unit. I was able to Burn and Read Blu-Ray Discs as well as normal/regular DVD's. I have Not had any problems with it. I have software that I can use with it, but I am still looking for the best freeware for it.
