Works well

Chris O., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Haven't tried writing yet, but I use this in my HTPC and it plays Blu-ray movies just fine (Windows 7 Pro) Got it with a coupon code and paid a very reasonable price for it (~$40)
  • Pros: It works No lag - tray pops out immediately upon pressing the eject button
  • Cons: Not really a con but it makes some weird noise when you turn the computer on. Doesn't affect performance or anything so it's not really a con.

Great product. It is OEM

  • Summary: Great product. It is OEM, the design is the old looking one with the button, not the brushed plastic. The drive was manufactures november 2015, an amazing feature since new OEM hardware are manufactured usually some years ago(2011, 2013).

Bare unit = No viewing software included

William Blake, Amazon

  • Summary: Make sure you know what you are buying when you select "bare unit". I didn't realize that it translated into "no drivers or viewing application included'. I think this site needs to make just a little better effort in stating this.

DOA - Cannot burn a Blu-ray

fr1, Amazon

  • Summary: Reads Blu-ray with stutter. Unable to burn a Blu-ray with error" Problem calibration area". The disc burned perfectly on a different older LG unit. I have ordered a replacement and will see if the new drive works. Glad I ordered from AMZ and service from LG is so bad.

Great addition to modern pc

Steve M., Newegg
7 April 2016
  • Summary: Would recommend this over the 16x drives, I have yet to find recordable media faster than 10x, most common and cheapest available are 6x discs so why bother with 16x write speed, save a few bucks and get the 14x drive. Works well, played a few movies on it, haven't tested dvd or cd burning.
  • Pros: Plays bluray movies with pretty much any of the free online players Burns with Nero, tested and works fine Plenty fast enough to burn the 6x discs that are currently available
  • Cons: Doesn't support 4k bluray (at least not yet, not with any of the software I tried including Power DVD 15, mpc, vlc, and others)

Does not burn or even recognize blank Blu-Rays

Mark N., Newegg
7 April 2016
  • Pros: It reads CDs and DVDs with no issues.
  • Cons: It simply does not accept blank Blu-Rays. I purchased a recommended 10-pack of Verbatim BD-R's and this burner doesn't even see that there's something in the drive. Even after assuming I may have had a bad disc...not a single one in the pack was recognized. Windows 10 sees nothing, either, with a...

An affordable Bluray drive... what more do you need to know?

David Richins, Amazon
5 April 2016
  • Summary: I looked around for Bluray drives for years and they were always well above $100. Then, suddenly, along came this little bugger. $15, and a bluray writer to boot! I've tried using the writer a few times and have had some mixed results, none of which I think are the fault of the device.
