4 out of 5 eggsGood, a bit slow

Pros: Use primarily to burn data disks. Has held up over the years with no issues

Cons: Burn time is a bit slow. Faster speeds now. Takes quite awhile to burn a full data disc.

Other Thoughts: Worth the money over a regular dvd/cd. Extra

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: I've used this to burn close to a hundred Blu-ray's and have had very little to complain about or blame on the this Blu-ray burner. Great product and I have used this for close to 3 years now.

Cons: None so far.

2 out of 5 eggsDied

Pros: When it was at it's best, it played Blu Rays on the first try.

Cons: It died after about 3 years. Not too bad, but I couldn't shake the feeling that it was never really "supported". I could never update the firmware, and as others have already said, a search through the LG site makes you think it's not really an LG product. Between the non-support of the product and the just-often-enough failures while playing a video (if it even got started) made me cringe every time I put a new Blu Ray in the drive.

Other Thoughts: Glad it's dead so that I can move on. Not buying an LG product like this any more.

1 out of 5 eggsnever used to burn

Pros: looked nice. read all discs ( mainly games )

Cons: this was never used to burn, mainly purchased to burn backups ( which i never quite got around to ) when i finally tried to do a backup it wouldnt burn, and now doesnt even read discs anymore. device manager says it is working properly, but no go. ahh well. first lg product ( and last )

Other Thoughts: very much wish i had tried to burn something when it was new, most likely would have failed then, live and learn..

1 out of 5 eggsNo Drivers = No Bluray

Pros: Well it plays DVDs just fine

Cons: have never been able to play BluRay, even when tryin to use it on WMP or VLC. Without the software this is pretty much an expensive DVD Player. Tried searching for the product online to see about getting some drivers or software to let me watch my blu-rays, nothing.

Other Thoughts: hopefully i'll never have this problem again on future disk reading-purchases.

5 out of 5 eggsHi-Res Movies!

Pros: It's been great finally being able to watch the few Blu-ray movies I've been given. It's also performed admirably ripping CDs, installing software, and burning a DVD or two.

Cons: I wound up getting newer software for showing movies than what came with. Your call.

Other Thoughts: I have not tried to burn a Blu-ray disc yet; none of my friends have them and I don't have much call for making discs in general. Flash drives have taken over that spot.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive

Pros: Haven't really used it that much but when I do it works perfectly.

Cons: none installed very smoothly

Other Thoughts: Does a little bit of everything at a decent enough price. I rarely use it but does a good job when I do.

1 out of 5 eggsNo support!!!!!!

Pros: Does what it suspose to do/

Cons: No support!!!!!!! See billbo72's review for details.

Other Thoughts: Have been using LG products in home and professional builds for many years. Never an issue. Still no problem with this box, but zero support or even a reference to the PN on LG.COM is a major disapointment to a company whos products I have otherwise had nothing but good experiences with, hence 1-egg because there is no zero.
