What People Are Saying

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whats not to like? This drive was highly rated on Amazon, and it has turned out to be a great deal for the price. I have been using it for 2 months and it has ripped and burned DVDs and BR disks as it should without a problem. I needed a replacement for the player burner that came with my computer and it seems to run quicker (may be my imagination) and quieter. April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works beautifully in linux! I have been a linux user since 2000, and this blue-ray burner is one of the best pieces of hardware I've gotten in almost all that time. The speed my system achieves when burning is amazing! I usually average ~45MB/second, so filling a 25GB BD takes less than 15 minutes. LG hit the ball out of the park with this burner. I don't know what the trouble is with those saying anything other than great stuff about this burner (other than blame M$!), but for me this burner is fantastic and works out of the box on linux systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great! I've only burned 1 BD and several DVD's but it burns them fast and they are readable. February 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well for the price. Using this drive in a MacPro (2010) on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2. I've only burned a handful of Blu-Rays but they work OK. Burned a ton of DVD's and they are fine as well (and 2 CD's). Ripped a ton of Blu-rays and this drive is fast for that. Would recommend, it's a good drive for OSX. February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Working fine so far Has worked fine since 11-08-2014. Got it for a great price January 14, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I sent them both back. I bought 2 WH16NS40 burners for my desktop PC. Neither one of them would read blu-ray or dvd. One of them would catch once in a while, but it was very slow and spottyi. I sent them both back. I'll never buy another LG product, unless they improve their quality. The price was low, but that doesn't matter if they don't work right. January 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Upgrade great product that reads almost all my cd products. Faster bluray reading is essential! January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality Blu-Ray Burner I had no problem installing the drive in my pc which found all needed drivers for it. It work fine right out of the box December 10, 2014
