Burning electronic charts to BR
Need was to use BR disks rather than DVD's as I provide electronic chart updates to fleet units that can easily amount to 20GB. Slower burn speed not much of an issue in my case; it works fine and saves shipping costs.

This drive is only as good as the software
LG BP40NS20 External Blueray
How I expected to use it: To watch DVD's and Blueray's on my laptop while traveling.
The software that comes with this product is some of the worst. When I did some research, after I couldn't get it to work, I found the people who wrote reviews didn't actually use the software that comes with it. It's bad.
Watching a Blueray didn't work without downloading another entities software product. The the DVD playback was jumpy.
It does not work straight out of the box. I am returning this product.

No MAC support
No MAC support, this product is obviously faulty for the system, you should have a proper driver or file to make this work, very unsatisfied experience.

I was concerned about mac compatibility. It works great with Mountain Lion OS X , no drivers needed, no hassle, just plug and burn your dvd's
