What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from questionable purchase At first everything went well. I copied DVD's without problems. The GE20LU11 started acting up. It would read a blank DVD and then it wouldn't, now it only sees the 8.5gb as a 4.7gb. I thought I purchased a bad lot of blank DVD's. A month later I purchased another container of DVD's. The same results. I then called LG, and told them my problem. It turns out that Memorex DVD+R DL isn't compatable with this burner. There wasn't ever anything in the reviews or comments. I withhold recomendation to purchase this product at this time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GE20LU11 Super dvd writer Don't get me wrong I think this product was a very good buy and love using it but have had several issues. Now even though it states 20x speed I have only been given the option for 4.5 speed setting when burning on it . and lately have not been able to get it to burn at all !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mac and Windows usage I found this product to be very reliable and easy to use; provided it is used on Windows based systems.Reading the product information leads one to believe that hardware AND software are compatible with BOTH Windows and Mac. However, the enclosed software is for Windows only. There is no hardware issue with the Mac OS. True to Mac you just plug in the USB and Mac finds the hardware. Mac users will be informed by LG customer service that they are to contact Apple to obtain appropriate compatible software

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drive LG produces great products. They are solidly built and last forever. I cannot find this drive wanting for anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love Lightscribe! Lightscribe is great. It takes a long 25 minutes to burn the label on, but it looks professional. The software for the dvd burner has been a little frustrating ... Why can't I name the disk?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done My wife and I bought 2 new laptops, and neither of them came with an optical drive of any sort. We like burning DVDs of our son for his grandparents, as well as using some software that we already owned on CD and DVD. Getting an external drive was the answer. Our sales consultant recommended the LG line of optical drives based on his experiences with them. We looked at this model as well as the slim line models from LG. We decided that while we needed the drive, we did not need it all of the time and could leave it at home and not take it around with us. We are getting the bonus of increased speeds with this model over the slimmer more portable models as well
