    Best External Drive Out There!
    I love this Drive especially the software that comes with it makes it easy to copy homemade movies to other DVDs. Good price, quality, and most of all it's an LG product. I may not have an HD Screen but I do plan to get one in the future and I will be future proof since it will play Blu-Ray.

    Works well - Good for Mac
    Installed on my unibody Macbook. Playback is smooth and drive is very quiet. It did require finding and installing separate 3rd party bluray hardware. This would have been a perfect purchase if I didn't have to buy additional playback software for the Mac OSX.

    Like the blu-ray a lot, but...
    I was surprised when the software that came with it didn't integrate fully with Windows 7. I like to make a copy of my movies and save them in my network hard drive for viewing throughout the house. When I tried to use the player, it was not listed in the source for my software. I eventually got it to work, but it wasn't very intuitive.

    Good Product with features for the price
    I bought this for the lightsribe feature and the Blue Ray player was a bonus. I have had zero issues with the install or functions of this drive. This is the 5th LG drive I have purchased and have never had an issue with any of them.

    Evoid this product if you have Windows 8.1
    This driver is very noisy while playing/burning CD or DVD. With Blu Ray the sound is correct. It's provide with Power DVD 9. This program is not compatible with Windows 8.1. If you buy this product, your will have to buy PowerDVD 14 Ultra. Also, the firmware of this driver need update to work correctly on Windows 8.1. Best thing to do, buy a newer model of LG driver!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Perfect Home Network Attached Storage
    Excellent Network Storage Device for your home. Provides central backup location, great for sharing photo's and video throughout your home to all your network devices. Easy to access over the internet with smart phones and ipads. Price is unbeatable and large home videos can be stored and moved to Blu-ray with the built-in burner to mail to other family members. All that is lacking is the poor interface. Might be difficult for user without some basic computer usage skills, needs better interface.

    And I don't mean the candy. The NAS system makes daily backups a breeze and because that was the case, when my system crashed hard and I needed to restore, I was back in business in under 2 hours. The Blu-ray writer is a real plus to making offsite backups of a good chunk of data. I would recommend this to my friends and would buy another.

    Excellent Blu-ray Disc Writer
    The drive installed easily with no problems, and has been easy to use. It included several programs, a player, data disc creator, adviser, label printer. It did not come with a video editing program, but worked perfectly with the one I already had. I was able to create (burn) several Blu Ray discs with no problems, which all worked in a standard Blu Ray player. All in all, an excellent drive so far.

    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.

    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.

    Great buy if you know what you are doing
    This unit is excellent. It does all of the important things an optical drive should. Sure it doesn't do Light-scribe, but really who can say those labels are nothing more than meh. Dual layer, three D blu-ray and M-disc for this price? For me the only minor gripe is how noisy it is when I boot up my system and when a disk loads. Sure it is OEM and comes with nothing, but it does play cds and dvds out of the box. For blu-ray just do a search for software on the net and you will be golden. The ... read more worst-buy reviewer, well that should say it all.

    own it's predicessor
    I Own the UH12NS29. I guess it was sitting on the shelf for a while. I'm using Windows 7 Pro. It worked OK after I did the firmware upgrade. The software that came with it didn't work that great, but when I got different software it worked fine! It burns fine, but playback on computer is grainy. It works even worse with Windows Media Player. Playing the same DVD in a home DVD player the same DVD works great. Don't know what to think of that. I hope they dealt with the issues with the UH12NS30 unit

    Works great with a Mac
    As a photographer, I can capture quite a lot image files. Burning off to DVD, I have well over 500 DVD archives. Blu-ray was the next step, but I was a bit nervous due to reviews stating they had issues on a Mac platform (like it didn't work). I decided to give this LG writer a try-out. No issues at all (using Toast). Over 23GB of data written in about 7 minutes, verifying took just about 15 minutes...faster than burning a DVD on my MacBook Pro super drive (yet 6 times the data!). So, yep! I'm a happy camper!

    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.

    Reads damage BD disks
    My existing BD Rewriter was starting to fail to recognize a netflix BD, one out of 3-4 disks. Same bad disks had trouble playing or flat out would not play in a nearly new LG 12.7mm BD rewriter. Bought this BE14NU40 Writer because of the "Jamless Play" that let's it play thru fingerprints or bad / scratched sectors - This unit played 2 BDs that both my existing units did not recognize or would recognize then fail to play - and if you wamt a noisy writer/player - look at other units, this thing ... read more is morgue quiet. I would not hesitate to buy this unit again

    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.

    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.

    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

    Exellent value for the money
    I found this drive very easy to use and it does an excellent job. Be careful of the requirements to install this drive. This box does not have the necessary software to operate all the functions on the box. I had to purchase the software separately. I would recommend this drive.
