What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent back-up drive. Rating for the device itself: Excellent. Rating for the accompanying software: Good. Install time was very quick (maybe, 10 minutes). Fit and finish is good within the existing case. Immediately used to back up an existing NAS box over GigE on the corp net. Took about 10 hours to back up 1.2TB of data, no issues whatsoever - clean and fast and quiet backup. I like the fact that it can burn 100GB M-DISC BDR blanks - these are excellent for archive storage and have a very long lifespan, so I know our data is safe in offsite-storage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wish that DVD-DL was writeable at ×16. DVD-DL reading at ×12 and writing at ×8. BD-R MDisc SL at 4x CLV but DL at 6x CLV. BD-R writing at 16x but reading only 12x? CD-RW only 24x? Why not 32x? Good drive, but I do not understand these limitations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I've had an exterior LG Blu-ray Disc Drive (BE14NU40) for several years now. I wanted an interior version. Since I've had such great service from the exterior model, I decided to purchase an interior model. I had it about a month now and couldn't be happier with it. I have no doubt I will get the same service from the new one as I have from the older one. Great product!

Will WH16NS60 drive play UHD movies in this configuration: Player app: Cyberlink PowerDVD 18 Ultra. OS: Windows 10 Pro. Motherboard/CPU: Asus M5A97LE R2.0/AMD FX 8350 CPU. Graphic card: EVGA GeForce GTX1050Ti. TV: Samsung SUHD 9800.

Asked by: Buckingham
That will depend on your system. Regrettably, we do not know the specifications for your Motherboard/CPU: Asus M5A97LE R2.0/AMD FX 8350 CPU. Graphic card: EVGA GeForce GTX1050Ti. TV: Samsung SUHD 9800 to determine if the LG Internal Blu-ray Drive Ultra HD Blu-Ray Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # WH16NS60 will play UHD movies. In order to play UHD Blu-rays, your system must support AACS 2.0 and Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX). You’ll need software to play the disc itself, and a GPU with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support. AACS 2.0 also has to be implemented within the GPU driver, and we don't know if any current stand-alone GPU drivers have this functionality. Finally, you need a 4K TV with both HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support as well. No Intel chips before Skylake support SGX, and just owning a Skylake board isn’t enough — many desktop boards never implemented the feature and don’t support it in UEFI. The HDCP 2.2 support requirement is also dodgy, since not every Intel board supports that standard, either...^IFV

Hello, I have an ASRock Z370 Pro4 motherboard (300 Series) with an Intel i3-8350k Coffelake (300 Series) CPU, 16GB of DDR4 2666 Ram, Zotac GTX 1050 Ti video card that is HDCP Ready and an LG 4K HDCP Ready monitor. Will I be able to play/watch 4K movies?

The Ultra HD Blu-ray logo on the LG Internal Blu-ray Drive Ultra HD Blu-Ray Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # WH16NS60 indicates that this is a digital optical disc data storage format that supersedes Blu-ray. Ultra HD Blu-ray discs are incompatible with existing Blu-ray players Ultra HD Blu-ray supports 4K UHD (3840 × 2160 resolution) video at frame rates up to 60 frames per second, encoded using High Efficiency Video Coding and the discs support both high dynamic range by increasing the color depth to 10-bit per color and a greater color gamut than supported by conventional Blu-ray video by using the Rec. 2020 color space. To pass 4K video, you need HDMI 2.0 ports and everything in your video path has to be HDCP 2.2 compliant. IF any one component in that path is not HDCP 2.2 compliant, you will not get 4K...^IFV

When is avaible to buy it? Fry`s doesn`t have stock and don`t outside of US

Asked by: Marto
Hi Marto. The LG Internal Blu-ray Drive Ultra HD Blu-Ray Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # WH16NS60 is a unit that has been available in the U.S. for a while. If Fry's is out of stock on it, you will need to contact them to inquire if they give you an estimate for when they will have it back in stock. Regrettably, we do not have information about what inventory retailers who carry this unit have. If you are in the U.S., you can visit its product page, http://www.lg.com/us/burners-drives/lg-WH16NS60 and under the main image of the unit is a 'Where to Buy' button that you can click on to open a page that you can enter a U.S. zip code for where you are in the U.S. which will then list all the retailers that are within a 50-mile radius of that zip code who sell this unit and will also give you a list of all the online sites who sell it. Our offices in the U.S. will not have information for outside the U.S...^IFV

Is this drive a NATIVE 4K playback unit or is it upscaled? i.e will it playback UHD 4K Disks? I'm currently getting a FORMAT error on using 4K Disks Asking for a mate in Ojai California

Asked by: BiggyRat
It's native. You have to have every single thing listed under the specs, there very few motherboards that support everything needed to playback 4K movies(Specially the Intel SGX). There are allot of hoops you need to jump through just to play a 4K movie. There is a typo, Only Monitors with HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a are supported, Monitors with HDMI 2.0 and below are not supported. Of course Displayport is not support in any way for some reason.
