Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reads damage BD disks My existing BD Rewriter was starting to fail to recognize a netflix BD, one out of 3-4 disks. Same bad disks had trouble playing or flat out would not play in a nearly new LG 12.7mm BD rewriter. Bought this BE14NU40 Writer because of the "Jamless Play" that let's it play thru fingerprints or bad / scratched sectors - This unit played 2 BDs that both my existing units did not recognize or would recognize then fail to play - and if you wamt a noisy writer/player - look at other units, this thing is morgue quiet. I would not hesitate to buy this unit again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This device has replaced my Sony Blu-Ray player. My setup is an 80" 4K Television, connected via HDMI to my audio receiver. This device is connected to my media computer, which itself, is connected via HDMI to my audio receiver. I'm using software to play my DVDs and Blu-Ray discs and this product has been phenomenal. I'm not losing anything not using the Sony product. Full HD-DTS and the picture quality is second to none! Keep up the great work, LG.
