What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it frequently This DVD drive provides me with LightScribe functions on demand. I use it almost daily. It also serves nicely as a DVD drive for viewing movies and loading CD games. It is compact and attractive on my desk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Has a software glitch with windows 8.1, keeps wanting to attach to my hard drive even if not connected, don't like this should not attach to my hard drive anyway as it is an external drive

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, portable, yet full of features This has become a valuable tool in my troubleshooting kit. Definitely glad I bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a winner! Small, sleek and works great. Only problem I found is the USB cable doesn't fit tight and comes unplugged if DVD moves at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great netbook helper We took our netbook on trip that involved multiple flights, travel various kinds of taxis and buses over roads that were not always that smooth. The drive took the beating and worked like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY easy to set up and use I needed to take my netbook on a trip where I woud also have to use CD's. Since there is no internal CD drive on netbooks, I quickly purchased the LG slim GP08LU10 and packed it in my briefcase along with the netbook. After a long flight when I was exhausted, I was really pleased at how easy it was to have this up and running. I cannot say enough good things about LG products. About 10 or more years ago I purchased my first LG cell phone and loved it. When I needed to purchase a house full of appliances, I chose an LG Dishwasher, along with an LG Washer and Dryer, and finally an LG Refrigerator. The large appiiances are now nearing their 5 year anniversary and I am still extremely pleased with all of them. I have not had a problem with ANY LG appliance. But my review here-in is supposed to be just for the drive, so I shall now stick to that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I bought this unit to use with my netbook. I checked different brands and found this unit to be my choice. The lightScribe and the LG brand were big pluses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real easy to use I wanted an external drive to do backup. I found copying to a DVD writer is the most reliable as external drive can can bad just like a hard drive on a computer. If I could use it, then anyone can use it.
