    5 out of 5 eggskeeps performing

    Pros: Burned hundreds of disks, many multi-hour sessions, no problems, no errors w/ hard use. Excellent product, one of the most impressive periferals I own.

    Cons: will lock up if software looses its mind, not a preventable con. added an in line toggle switch to the power cord and placed it in a convenient spot so I don't have to reach behind it to unplug it to reset it.

    Other Thoughts: not sure if it's software or hardware but only burns 16X DVDs (printables) with +R mxmrxx, everything else in printable medium burns at 4 X... only an issue w/ printables.

    4 out of 5 eggsLG external Burner

    Pros: Works flawlessly-easy to set up; burned a couple hundred CD's for my wedding and it made only 1 coaster (internal drive made 5 or 6)

    Cons: It's kinda big

    Other Thoughts: I would recommend it.

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat Burner

    Pros: Fast, durable, easy to use.

    Cons: None really. I couldn't get some casino games to play on this drive..?

    Other Thoughts: I've burned several DVD's (approx: 40+) and haven't had any coasters yet. I've owned and used it for about 2 months. It plays all my DVD movies as well. I even got my cousin to buy one as well and he loves it too. Definitely recommend.

    4 out of 5 eggsDS still flaky Perhap Nero?

    Pros: Seems to burn everything ok except DS, came with Nero including nerocmd.exe.

    Cons: Can't seem to get the DS burns to read in my Toshiba and Sony laptops. Could be Neros fault. Upgraded to the latest nero with no success.

    3 out of 5 eggsNot too good

    Pros: Nice looking. When it works, it works well.

    Cons: Seems to struggle with certain media. Would not boot certain CDR's. The LG website doesn't even list the drive, so there is no firmware available that might hopefully resolve the issue.

    4 out of 5 eggsLG Ext. DVD Burner

    Pros: Easy to get up and running. Very nice designed casing. No errors on so far 50 dvds. Cheap price. Faster than my main drive at transferring data.

    Cons: NO power switch. Not as fast as advertised.

    Other Thoughts: Other than that it is a great drive. I would definitely buy it again.
