Summary: The LG WH16NS40 Blu-Ray rewriter drive is fast and compatible in my Windows 7 Pro Dell Precision Tower. This drive is fast and pretty quiet on CD, DVD and Blu-Ray read and write. It's a standard SATA interface and installation was super easy with the Dell - two screws and slide it in place, then connect the power and SATA, Finally, power up and let Windows 7 find and install the drive in the OS.
Everything's great, although it's not as quiet as I'd like

Summary: Everything's great, although it's not as quiet as I'd like. The motors driving the tray open are louder than most other drives I've used. It's hard to describe, but it sounds like the typical noise from other belt-driven or aggressively geared motor devices, like perhaps the sounds of when an ATM takes your card and delivers cash. I suppose at least it suggests it could be a heavy-duty mechanism.
Summary: Best Disk Writer on Amazon or any other place for the Price! I have 14 (12x) 16 (14x) and 6 (16x). I use them in computer and duplicator builds, All work with use of third party software! Really like to buy when price falls to around 50.00 or less! Will buy again. One set of software will work for several Burners or drives, I use CL or N burning software! I Buy one with software and several (OEM's) Without software at the time!
Excerpt: Ordered this on a Wednesday, had it delivered the next day, unboxed it, shut off the PC and opened the case, installed this new unit, and was burning DVDs all in less than 15 minutes. It could not have been easier (save for someone installing it for me.) Great price and it has worked flawlessly. No software issue or hardware handshake problems. LG quality.
Pros: Definitely works great. This my 2nd BD Burner so I copy BD to BD. This drive works well as either the initial or the copy drive. I use it to burn the blank disk. Burned about 160 BD disks so far, and perfect, no coasters.
