1 out of 5 eggsFirst bad unit from Newegg

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: It got here pretty quickly

Cons: It burned one Blue Ray disc which it then could not read at all. After that one burn it wouldn't recognize any other Blur Ray disc as even being in the burner no matte what software I used. Even my burning software couldn't see a disc

Other Thoughts: It had to happen eventually. In all the years, and there have been many, that I've used Newegg I've never had a DOA or a piece of equipment fail on first use so I was due.

I've RMA'd it without any problems and it will ship out tomorrow and I'll wait impatiently for its replacement

1 out of 5 eggsJunk ! But looks Nice !

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Nice smooth front facia, with buttons underneath the front flexible strip. Sleek design.

Cons: Slow to access discs, when it bothers to do so at all. Played a burned dvd fine, but would not play 2 out of 3 pre-recorded Dvd's . First bad DVD drive I have ever owned. And I have had a LOT of PC's over the last 25+ years ...

Other Thoughts: Will have to send this back to LG, and of course eat the return shipping charges. So keep in mind your total cost will probably be higher then just the sale price ... Spend your money on a better quality drive. You won't be saving any money with this drive in the long run ...

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy This Drive

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: None, the drive is non-functional.

Cons: I installed this drive a few months ago, but have not had a chance to really examine it until recently. I knew it would not burn a DVD - giving I/O errors. But recently I bought some Blu-Ray discs and spent some more time with this drive. The results: It won't burn a CD, DVD or BD-R. All attempts to burn anything result in an I/O error. I discovered that it wont even play a DVD. Fortunately I have a DVD burner in the system. I'd like to find a way to return this drive and get something that works.

Other Thoughts: I did upgrade the firmware with no evidence of improvement.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Player

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Looks nice !

Cons: The player is having trouble playing discs consistently. 1st disc I tried, which was a burned DVD played well. 2nd & 3rd discs, which were store bought pre-recorded DVD's would NOT play. Really poor access time on the disc it did play. Looks like I got a defective player... Now I get to see if LG's warranty service is any good. Oh lucky me ...

1 out of 5 eggsThe SATA data connection broke twice on first connection

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: NONE....

Cons: I just received my second drive. This thing is the worst thing I have ever bought . I bought my first one about 1.5 months ago and went to connect it and the SATA data connector broke off in seconds. I thought maybe my cable was faulty because it was one of the ones with a clamp so they don't come loose. I got an RMA number and returned it(for $12 shipping). After I UPS it back and 4 weeks later to get my "new" drive back. This time I used a cable that did not have clamp on it. Sure enough, I connected it and the SATA connector immediately broke off. I can't believe this. I'm not going to pay another $12 to get another RMA. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I have never had this happen with any PC component in the 20 years I've been building PCs.

Other Thoughts: This is the first review I have ever done, but this thing is a less than worthless and people need to know. Not only did it cost me 2 drives, it cost me 2 cabes as well.

How do I give this 0 stars?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a Charm

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Works right out of the box, very easy to install. Windows picked up the new drive as soon as I rebooted the system, and was able to play all my DVD's with old software.

Cons: Not really a con, but if you plan on watching bluray videos, you'll need to download a bluray player. VLC will not work unfortunately. After the software is installed, this drive works like a charm and hasn't failed me yet.

Other Thoughts: Love this drive. Got it on sale, so it was a steal. Now I can stream my movies through my network onto my living room or bedroom tv (I dont have a blu-ray player for each) using the remote desktop client. Love it.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug it in and it works...

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Plug and play.

Cons: If you want to play BD movies you need to BUY the software!

Other Thoughts: I have Ashapoo Free Burning Rom and I plugged in the BR burner and burned a Data-BD-R in about 15 minutes... (22GB .mkv) and it played back perfectly.
IF you want to play Blu-ray discs from the store YOU WILL NEED TO GET some software from Nero or Cyberlink. There is no software to play BD movies!!!!
