4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Just an all around good burner.

Cons: Not the fastest burner on the market but I would say the best bang for the buck

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Flawless installation and function. I've had great success with LG drives in the past which is why I went with this for my beige desktop case. The price point for a drive that delivers as well as LG is the reason I keep coming back.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Smooth and quiet when burning. Spins up like mad when reading data but that's fine with me. I can't expect it to remain quiet when reading at full speed, and full speed moves mucho data in a hurry.

This is a short profile drive. If you have a SFF or mATX case and need the extra room this is one to add to your list.

5 out of 5 eggsLG is a great product

Pros: I already have an LG writer that has been in my system for a few years with no problems. This one is no exception. Plugged it in, set up was easy and it works great.

Cons: None at all

4 out of 5 eggsFirst try

Pros: na

Cons: na

Other Thoughts: Received it really fast, I mean, next day. Unfortunately there was some component loose inside the unit. I'll have to RMA it and give it another try.

4 out of 5 eggsLiteOn? - Maybe not

Pros: As an update on my previous review, the overall workmanship feels like an LG so I'm guessing my BIOS info may be incorrect. The tray looks, feels, and sounds like my other LG's and I am feeling much better about it now.

This is a VERY fast drive.

Cons: As with drive that is as fast as this one there is little hope for quiet operation. It's loud when it spins up, and when it spins up it REALLY spins up! But I like the speed so I personally don't see the occasional spin up noise as a negative.

Other Thoughts: Don't let my L-O comment scare you off if you are looking for an LG. This is a well built drive than my other LG's even thought it does have a slightly different look.

4 out of 5 eggsLite On?

Pros: This is a short \ shallow case unit which would be great for anyone with a small case.

So far it does what it is supposed to do, but only time will tell how long it will do it.

Cons: Badged as an LG on the front but the BIOS sees it as a Lite On.

A what????

Other Thoughts: I skipped over the LO because I wanted an LG. Although it says LG on the bezel I'm not sure that's what it really is.

5 out of 5 eggsColor off...

Pros: Fast, drive works great...

Cons: none...

Other Thoughts: the color is more white then beige.... doesn't blend well with the case color, or other componet colorings... so, beware of that...

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: Fast! Quiet! From the second I installed it, I have had complete success. It was recognized by all of my software, nothing I had to do.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would like the LED light to change color instead of blinking while burning, but, I'll live.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Burners

Pros: great quality from LG as usual.

Cons: They could be free :)

Other Thoughts: Was initially frustrated with these because I was trying to burn multiple dvd copies using the multiple recorderd button in Nero. Found out that it burned at 1.5x if they were on the same ide cable. Once I split them up they started burning like the champs they were! The ide cable was the bottleneck.
