5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: It does everything you need a optical drive to do plus lightscribe support to create your own labels.

I have 2 of these drives and they always perform with no problems at all. They're fast, reliable and even look great in my PCs.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggspoor quality

Pros: none

Cons: Drive is very picky about what movies and media it would play. Only one out of 4 movies were even recognized by the drive as disks, (including DVD's).

This is not an issue of copy protection, or media player, the drive won't even recognize the disk is inserted.

Upon calling LG tech support they immediately acknowledged that this drive has serious compatibility issues. They say it is only guaranteed to read disks from Verbatim, Maxell, Mitsibishi, and Panasonic.

They offered no repair or replacement option, no firmware update, and no remorse for selling a product that is virtually worthless.

Other Thoughts: The fact that LG tech support was so aware of this problem, and basically said "tough luck" to me should be a warning top anyone considering the purchase of LG products.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up

Pros: I've had this drive for over 2 yrs. Not one coaster. Every bit as good as an NEC 7200S, which is a die hard.

My tower is highly cooled. Perhaps that's why 9/10 of my drives live long lives :)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Richard S. is wrong. I run Windows 7 64 bit. There is NO Problem with my drive, and being recognized.

This drive replaced a WH10LS30. It quit burning reliably after 30 or so discs. It still reads good, so I use it. The WH12 hasn't had one hiccup. Perhaps Richard simply got a defective drive :p

1 out of 5 eggswin7 64 is fatal on these drives

Pros: GOOD PAPER WEIGHT, BUT PRICEY FOR THAT USE.

THANKFULLY NEWEGG HAS ANSWERED MY EMAIL.. THEY ARE REPUTABLE... NOT SURE OF A SOLUTION AT THIS WRITING, 2/15/14.

LG = CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!

Cons: will not work on win7 64 bit. system will not recognize drives. NOT DESIGNED FOR WIN7 64.

THESE DRIVES ARE USELESS TO ME.

Other Thoughts: SPECS DO NOT LIST WIN7 64 INOPERATIVE, maybe work with any 32 bit os... but adobe cs5 and up require 64bit os, and surely thought win7 64 was a logical choice. WRONG!

shame on lg. LAST TIME I BUY AN LG 'ANYTHING' and i made sure the knew that in my final letter [difficult to contact as well.. had to snail mail to get an email with no reply function as well.

5 out of 5 eggsNice catch

Pros: 3D playback (obviously if you have 3D monitor or TV). Probably the best buy for the money.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: All the stuff people say about Windows 7 compatibility issues is not true at all. HOWEVER, Windows Media does not playback Blu-Ray movies. Therefore, you must purchase software to do this (expect to pay somewhere around $100.00 for blu-ray player/burner software).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat burner

Pros: It's nice when you buy a piece of computer equipment and it works right away. I've burned dozens of discs with this and has worked every time. With LG, life is good! No noise issues either.

Cons: None that I can think of.
