What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money The product stopped working inexplicably not long after I bought it and I was never able to get it working again. I fired it up recently to try and troubleshoot it, unsuccessfully. If you buy one, keep the receipt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from power through usb3.x when you connect through usb3.x you can suffice with one connection instead of the double connection because more available current. both the software and hardware does what it should do, I have no problems or failures experienced yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blu Ray playback in a jiffy I have my TV connected to a PC which is my prime media player. Though I have XBox 360, the lack of Blu Ray playback always disappointed me. It is all one easy to use external Blu Ray player that will complete my home theater setup. What better than this external Blu Ray player? Just plugged it to my PC, installed the required software downloaded from LG website and boom! There I have the Blu Ray player. As this is external drive, just plug it to the computer and done. No tools needed to open the computer. Playback quality/performance has been exceptional. The problem is that the stock disk that comes with the packaging has outdated software in it. It does not work on Windows 8, but after downloading the updates, it worked. Minimum computer hardware requirements are a little misleading especially the graphics card. It did not work on ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4640. I later found that Blu Ray playback needs better graphics card. It works like a charm on ATI Radeon HD 5750.

Firmware for the BP40NS20

I have just installed my BP40NS20 and tried to play a Blu ray disc with PowerDVD 12 on a Win7 Pro 64Bit PC. I got an error message on the screen telling me I needed to update my drive, not the PowerDVD software. Are there any Firmware updates for this drive?
