Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does everything I wanted it to do. Needed to install old programs onto my new slim laptop. Installation went without a problem. Played a Blu-ray movie with no problems. Have not tried to burn any disc yet. It is compact and easy to carry in computer bag. No problems so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work, doesn't play Blu-ray A terrible, overpriced product. It will not play some discs I have played on numerous other devices. When it does play a movie, there often are so many annoying stutters and pauses that I have to shut it off. And it absolutely will not play Blu-ray discs, despite the claims. Considering that this is one of the main reasons I bought it, that’s a major drawback. I tried patching the software that came with it many times, but that didn’t work. The people at Cyberlink, which makes the software, assure me it’s not a software problem, that the drive is faulty. LG is responsible for providing the software, anyway, so either their version of the software is flawed, or the drive itself is. This is on a brand-new, fully updated laptop with all the current drivers. Unfortunately I lost the receipt and can’t return it. So I’m stuck with this useless product. Don’t make the same mistake.
