Not Good At All

Andrew G., Newegg
5 July 2013
  • Summary: after 3 months of trying to get this fixed from Light-on, and had 4 drives sent to my house all did not work. i updated the firmware like they said and lightscribe didn't work at all. i even installed the drive on my sons computer witch is different system and windows still got the same thing.
  • Pros: No Pros to this drive at all
  • Cons: the drive does not work the way it should, Takes to long to read disks, burning disks takes even longer, Lightscribe leaves lines in the image, and now the drive just hangs up my system.

Does not play blurays

David F., Newegg
19 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this one because I thought it came with everything needed to play blurays. Wish I had purchased a cheaper drive. Deciding whether to upgrade to PowerDVD 12 or Purchase Corel WinDVD.
  • Pros: Plays dvds. I expect it will play bluray if I buy new software for it.
  • Cons: Does not play bluray out of the box. The software it comes with is the outdated PowerDVD 10.

Fine drive, hard to use though

Andrew N., Newegg
11 December 2012
  • Pros: Easy to install, physically works, not too loud
  • Cons: Software doesn't work with Windows 8, PowerDVD12 is only version which does. If you purchase PowerDVD12 you'll need to spend $98 to get Blu-Ray playback, so this player actually costs $177.99 if you own Windows 8.
