5 out of 5 eggsStill works after 4 years

Pros: - Reads/writes everything (except HD-DVD, duh!)
- Reliable
- Cheap (at the time)

Cons: The reader is not perfect; it won't be able to rip DVDs that have been badly scratched. Which is surprising, considering that the early 2000's LG DVD reader/CD-RW combos were the absolut ebest for damaged media.

Other Thoughts: I'm willing to bet that most people who blame their burners for not working properly are victims of their own greed. They buy a good disc burner, but then go for the cheapest disk spindles: either no-name or Memorex, or other fly-by-night, third-rate company.

Buy good, reliable media, and don't burn at the fastest speeds possible. If you care about your data, why wouldn't you take the time to record it properly? is your time really that precious that you absolutely need to have a full disc ready in 5 minutes? Anyone who's worked in the recording industry can tell you that burning discs at maximum speed is a bad idea. You will get data dropouts.

5 out of 5 eggsStill running strong

Pros: It does what it advertises. Good quality. I purchased it in 2009, and it's still just as good as the day I bought it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Should have purchased one with light scribe. I hate writing on the discs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat burner

Pros: It has it all. It even came with a sata cable, power connector, and software. Surprising package for an OEM drive. Straight forward installation.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Great drive, does everything it says perfectly. My old SATA dvd reader/writer died and I got this to replace it on the black friday sale (129.99).

At first I was nervous to use the drive for all purposes (playing DVD's, blu-rays, cds and burning all of those). Then I realized, there are different lasers for them and that I bought it to use... It's still kickin' after pretty steady use since purchase.

Cons: Blu-Ray software is obnoxious... Unfortunately the codecs a) do not come with OEM drives and b) are not native to any OS yet. That being said - if you get one and are in the market for the software - absolutely get Corel WinDVD 2010 Plus for it. The other ones my friends have are finicky with drivers & hardware and have awful GUI's.

Other Thoughts: I haven't compared these to other options, but for the price - this drive is great. I would be willing to buy it at the non-sale price if I hadn't already gotten one!

5 out of 5 eggsGood burner

Pros: Burns blu-ray, dvd and cds with no problems. THe drive is faster than I thought it would be.

Cons: The cost of blank blu-ray media. It takes an hour to burn a blu-ray disk. I can save the iso in about 15 minutes to my hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Even though it was OEM my order came with the cyberlink blu-ray burning software and a sata cable. The drive works very well.

5 out of 5 eggsshhhh!!! It's quiet!

Pros: Very quiet, reads/burns everything I've thrown at it that it's supposed to read.

Cons: Doesn't play the HD-DVDs that I had but it doesn't matter, I couldn't find software for less than $100 to plat the darn things anyway. Long.

Other Thoughts: If I could go back and skip buying the other drive with HD-DVD playback, I would have easily bought 2 of these.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked right out of the bubble wrap!

Pros: It works fine with Windows 7 (64 bit) with no updates of any kind and seems compatible with all my software like Nero 9, CloneDVD, AnyDVD, etc.

I literally had it installed and working in about 5 minutes from opening the box to loading a disc.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: Lots of people complain about the bundled software but this is usually junk so I never count on it for anything. I have it loaded but am not using for much of anything and will probably uninstall it soon.

1 out of 5 eggsNo software

Pros: Relatively low price

Cons: No software. I've tried Power DVD, WinDVD, and TotalMedia Player. They all work on some Blu-ray discs, but none seem to be 100% reliable. Do yourself a favor, just watch blu-ray on a blu-ray player and not your PC.

2 out of 5 eggsLG Has Terrible Support

Pros: Plays DVD's flawlessly out of the box

Cons: Bad firmware, cannot play or write blu-ray with power DVD 9. Didn't come with any of the peripherals other eggers received with their drive (no cables, no firmware disc, no power DVD had that from another drive)

LG has the worst customer support I've ever dealt with. See Below

Other Thoughts: When calling their toll free support line (800.243.0000) I get the same 2 automated voices (one male and one female) when trying to get to their consumer electronics customer support.

I get to what seems like an operator asking me to verify some information. It's a ploy. It's one of 2 voices every time I call back. The voices crackle and breakup (on purpose). The male voice always uses a name that starts with a J. The three times I've received the male voice it stated his name was Joe, Jay, and John in the same accent and its the same voice. It goes through a loop pretending it can't hear me and finally cuts the line. The female also used names starting with J and does the same thing.

It's a sham and a scam. My phone connection is perfectly fine and I tried on both a land line and my cell phone. I can make and receive calls on both lines as expected but when I try to call LG it crackles and pops and the automated voices go through their loop. Unbelievable. Class action suit worth
