What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent blu ray dvd recorder/player This is a great device as usual from LG. The product has more features than others costing more. the customer service from L:G is always great, and their web site is the easiest to use I have seen. Well worth the money. I always use LG, been burned too many times by other brands. August 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by own it's predicessor I Own the UH12NS29. I guess it was sitting on the shelf for a while. I'm using Windows 7 Pro. It worked OK after I did the firmware upgrade. The software that came with it didn't work that great, but when I got different software it worked fine! It burns fine, but playback on computer is grainy. It works even worse with Windows Media Player. Playing the same DVD in a home DVD player the same DVD works great. Don't know what to think of that. I hope they dealt with the issues with the UH12NS30 unit May 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first Blu-Ray disc drive. My first Blu-Ray internal DVD drive i purchased and i installed in my custom computer tower build,i chose LG because i have had other LG products in the past and they were very reliable and lasted a long time.My opinion about the LG brand is i prefer it over other brands.LG is high quality, superior performance,long lasting and the best warranty out there over other brands.It is my favorite brand.I plan purchasing another LG Blu-Ray DVD drive for my computer tower and run two LG Blu-Ray DVD drives for the work that i do.LG ROCKS !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great combo drive Really nice drive. Easy to install, handles all types of media, great price and LG quality. Highly recommend this item! February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first Blu-ray drive and I love it! I have been using this Blu-ray BD-Rom DVD combo for a couple of months and it has given me a flawless performance.It is great for watching movies on my pc. June 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blu-Ray Drive I Bought this drive with another LG Drive after the two that were purchased for the computer, would not install and gave nothing but problems. i wont give names i am not here to complain about others. I am here to say that this drive and the other LG drive i bought installed easy. i did nothing more than plug them in and turn the computer on. They worked on the first try. I know that might seem trivial or obvious, but think about how many things don't work on the first try, always have a problem or just plain don't work. Karma Exists and i give credit where it is due, whether it is good or bad. LG i own a lot of your products. (TV's, Cell Phones, Computer Products and more). You have never done me wrong. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great buy if you know what you are doing This unit is excellent. It does all of the important things an optical drive should. Sure it doesn't do Light-scribe, but really who can say those labels are nothing more than meh. Dual layer, three D blu-ray and M-disc for this price? For me the only minor gripe is how noisy it is when I boot up my system and when a disk loads. Sure it is OEM and comes with nothing, but it does play cds and dvds out of the box. For blu-ray just do a search for software on the net and you will be golden. The worst-buy reviewer, well that should say it all. March 25, 2014
