What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased. So far so good. Pleased with this refrigerator. Smaller unit than our last one, but roomy enough for our needs. Only drawback are the funky noises it makes. Still not sure if they are all attributable to the ice maker - which is working perfectly fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cleaning features, Easy to read buttons, I purchased the LG Washer (my first experience with LG) over a year ago and every time I do the laundry, I tell myself this is the best investment I could have made. Multiple wash cycles provide easy ways to clean various fabrics and I love the bulky and delicate features. The machine is a work horse but you hardly know it's running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a FANTASTIC external drive! I bought this drive brand new on eBay at 50% of the full retail price. Talk about a steal! This drive will easily and quietly handle ALL your reading and writing needs! It requires two USB ports to fully operate so you'll need two open ports preferably side by side due to the included cable. That could be an issue for those who have devices with a lack of enough ports. I'm glad the drive is powered this way to avoid a wall wart AC adapter. Highly recommended!

how do I get the device to show the dvd

Asked by: pat 1957
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this device. This optical drive is a device which requires additional software in order to provide the playback of a video disc. Such software cannot be installed on this TV, for proper communication between the drive and the TV.
