Average Rating for Burners & Drives

    I just finished building the system, installing Windows 7 and burning movies I own for testing purposes on this drive and they have been amazing. I have tried about 4 different types of DVDR's, 3 x DVD-R's and 1 x DVD+R and they have all worked flawlessly, from different manufacturers as well and I havent even flashed the firmware, I wont either. I have nothing but good things to say about this drive. I have not burned Blu-Ray discs as of yet, but I am sure I will soon. BUY IT

    Internal burner using as external on my laptop
    Bought this Blu-ray burner to burn movies that I download off the internet. The Blu-ray discs hold almost five times as much data or video as a DVD disc! If you search you can find the Blu-ray discs almost as cheap as DVD discs. With a sata conversion cable I purchased online I am using it with my laptop, which brings the price down a lot as compared to an external burner!!

    Completely meets my needs
    I needed a full rebuild on my home built PC and decided to go with two of these Blu-Ray writers. I'd had an LG DVD drive in the old machine and got years of hard usage out of it. These drives are both fast and quiet. I haven't used them for burning Blu-Ray disc yet, but have been using them heavily to rebuild my music library and have not had even a slight hiccup from either of them. I recommend them without hesitation!

    Solid performance
    Very affordable and reliable blu-ray burner and player. I have trusted LG for a long time and used LG sometimes without knowing it as it comes as standard equipment. I was delighted to find this burner at the great price I got. Haven't made me a blu-ray coaster yet.

    Nice Priced Blu-Ray Drive
    This is my first blu-ray drive. I found it easy to install on my windows 7 system. Have about a month now and watched several movies both regular and Blu-Ray with excellent playback quality. Drive is very quiet and performs well. Came with Cyberlink Power DVD 10 and other cyberlink software. Did not use all of the features yet but I'm confident they will work fine. Very pleased with my first Blu-Ray burner.

    Good ODD for the money, firmware somewhat lacking.
    Purchased this drive to be able to burn blu-rays as well as watch an occasional movie. Drive installed easily and no compatibility issues. Drive came pre-bundled with Cyberlinks Power DVD 10 which does play but not burn blu ray discs so expect to have to upgrade to Cyber links 11 or above. Drive had some issues playing newer blu rays, codecs are a little out of date and LG has been very slow updating their firmware for this drive. All in all a good drive and if you can find it on sale, snag it ... read more but if you can afford too, by a newer version.

    Great little BD Player
    Hi all. I recently purchased a new 14" laptop. Anybody knows, Most don't come with an Internal drive. I had previously purchased a LG portable DVD Player/Burner roughly 5 years ago. And it still works. Saw the LG on sale online. Purchased it based on my previous experience. BD movies play good. I don't know about the 3D mode. My monitor doesn't support it. The only real issue I had was, With the Software. But that could've been partly Windows 8.0. 8.1 upgrade is much better. I do Auto Repair on ... read more the side. And this works great for the manuals that come on discs.

    It plays movies better than my Sony Blu-ray deck
    Opening the package was easy, setting it up was even easier. make sure you run cyberlink DVD software while you are connected to the net so it can update itself to your system. This will end any problems you have. It is not a hardware issue it's a software issue. There is a crispness to the image and a saturation to the color which is fabulous and hypnotic. I'm still waiting for my blank Blu-ray discs to arrive, but as a player it's exceptional and not having another power supply I am so thankful for.

    Easy to Setup & Use
    This is one of the best external Blu-Ray drives I have ever used. The setup is straightforward, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow so even a novice will have no problems getting it up and running. The USB cable has 2 connectors, however the drive only requires 1 to be utilized for playback. You have to use both connections when burning a Blu-Ray Disk. Overall LG's External Drive is a No-Brainer. GET ONE.

    I am 100% pleased with this product
    I have suffered with DVD burners in the past not being easy to use so was a little apprehensive when I plugged this exterior burner in and used it for the first time to make a Blu-ray disc. The first one worked perfectly as did everyone since. It is now my go to burner for DVD's also as it appears not to have the quirks of my other two devices I used to use to burn DVDs and music CD's. I would highly recommend this product.

    Amazing Product
    This product is great to do anything with blue-ray and more! I only had one problem that took me 30 minutes to know what was going on. I know computers and have worked with them for a long time. Its wasnt big for me, but other I can see having problems. When I opened it and connected it to the computer and tried to installed the driverrs and that, that came on the cd, I ran into a problem. The cd said does not support the device. I had togo to the LG website and download a fireware update for ... read more the device! and then i was able to instal;l the driver. I should not have to do that!! It was a poor part on LG for that. Othere then that minor problem which i had no problem doing. I was thingking of the the other people that would run into this problem. Its a fantastic product and would get another one.

    Use it frequently
    This DVD drive provides me with LightScribe functions on demand. I use it almost daily. It also serves nicely as a DVD drive for viewing movies and loading CD games. It is compact and attractive on my desk.

    Great product!
    Stayed with a winner when I needed to upgrade a failing drive. LG BD burner is exactly what I was looking for when balancing value and price.

    Good for ripping
    Have used this to backup my bought Blu-ray disc and CDs. With MakeMKV I can rip my Blu-ray discs in about 20 minutes and with a 33 GB output file. The drive is very quiet in operation and seems to work well. I've not actually burned any discs with it yet, but will start backing up my photos at some point, and it's good to know that the M discs should last longer than standard Blu-rays.

    Works as advertised
    Installation was very easy. No problems encountered. Plays a broad variety of formats. Burns Blu-ray and regular DVD's using my Corel Video Studio Pro X6 software. I have only had it for about a month but so far so good.

    Seems to be just fine
    I can't say too much as yet as I don't burn CDs and DVDs very often. So far I only have played a DVD and it was fine. I was a little nonplussed that there is not really any player software included with this unit, except some third-party commercial "trial" version. But I will say the unit was super easy to install, and customer support was able to direct me to download good player software, and to reassure me that I had done everything correctly. The specs are perfect for what I needed for my ... read more laptop, whose DVD reader apparently died. So, keeping my fingers crossed that this will last for a good long time and prevent my having to buy a whole new computer.

    Great Product!
    I ordered a laptop without a CD writer/reader because it is seldom used and another item to get broken on the laptop. I do take it along sometimes if I think I'll need it but most of the time I leave it at home and use it when needed. My personal thoughts on the matter is CD writer/readers were very important for backups and such but with USB drive with much more storage space, the CD writer/reader is seldom needed.

    Solid, high-quality device
    Product works very well. I bought it primarily for listening to CDs and ripping CDs, but I have tested it for DVDs and it works fine there also. The horizontal sturdy tray feature is the best part and the reason I got it. My computer actually has an optical drive but it is vertical, flimsy and extremely difficult to use. So the external drive makes my life easier. One suggestion though for designers: move the button to the side or top instead of its position below the tray. It is very difficult ... read more to hit the button when the tray is open. Poor ergonomics.

    Great Value
    Very inexpensive burner. I like that it does not require a separate power cord. A little noisy, but outstanding for the price.

    Only Writer I'll ever use
    This was a great investment. Works beautifully, nice and slim (doesn't take much space), great price. Plus, LG is a reliable brand. Won't buy anything else

    Greatest External Optical Drive
    Once I received drive in the mail, I had it installed, up and running within minutes. Setup was a snap. Copied my first Blu-Ray disk with no issues. Optical drive is compatible with just about every CD format on the market

    Nice small size and pleasing to look at!
    My last CD/DVD burner was the LG brand and it held up well. I use it primarily to copy music CDs for the car so that we don't ruin the originals.

    Purchased this a few months ago with a Mac 15.5" and couldn't be happier. It's easy to us and has been very useful and reliable.

    Very good little DVD writer!
    I've only used it 4 times now, but so far so good. I use it with a Mac and iTunes to RIP the last few CDs I own. No problems. Just plug in the USB cable and it works. I gave it only 4 stars because of the plastic casing. I'd pay more for the item if the body was made out of recycable material, like aluminum. It would feel more durable that way too.
