2 out of 5 eggsNo Movies

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Seems like a decent player, if it did what it says.

Cons: Doesn't play DVDs or Blu Ray movies. I didn't spent $55.00 to just burn or read regular files. My last one was an ASUS and it worked fine. this one seemed to have more features beings my other one was 4 years old. Never worked but waited to long to request RMA. Sent emails to LG no response. Oh well only money. Did learn a good lesson though.

2 out of 5 eggsQuality?

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Reads and wrote flawlessly - for several months

Cons: Suddenly stopped writing. Software appeared to write and verify, but when I went to read the DVD, 3 different computers said the disc was blank. Tried 5 discs overall, using the same drive on the 3 computers. Still blank. Then took the same discs, burnt them with different data using a different DVD burner and everything was normal.

Other Thoughts: Presently I'm in the process of trying to get an RMA from LG. That's another story.

5 out of 5 eggsExecellent Quality Drive

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Fast, Quiet, Accepted every brad name of disc I have attempted to use. It had been used almost daily for the last 6 months and still works like it did when brand new. Came very well packaged in bubble wrap.

Cons: None of any great importance but being an OEM drive it did not come with anything other than the drive itself

Other Thoughts: As long a LG maintains their high quality standards I will buy another one, and another one after that, and another one after that...

5 out of 5 eggsAbout Time I Upgraded

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: I have been eyeing a BD burner update for some time now and had been waiting for the price to hit an acceptable level. Needless to say, this one hit the spot. It has worked great on BD-R and regular DVDs alike. Haven't tested it's limitations with anything above 4x on BD or the newer BD-XL but that will come eventually I am sure. I haven't bought many LG products in my time but the ones have are top notch.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Haven't been able to test it on the newer BDs out there, but when I do, I will update the review.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: It reads discs

Cons: This drive does not work. It will read discs just fine. I have not tried burning DVDs or BDs with it but it will not burn CDs without alot of hassle. I have tried it on 2 computers, updated the firmware, and tried 2 different brands of burnable CDs now. Without fighting with it and trying multiple times it will not burn a disc. If you want to burn stuff get a different drive.

Other Thoughts: I gave this drive the benefit of the doubt or I would have done an RMA a long time ago.

4 out of 5 eggsNo Blu-Ray playback software included

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Fast, one of the cheaper PC Blu-Ray drives available, good quality and no issues. 3D play back (though I wouldn't know how good it is due to lack of 3D monitor and lack of Blu-Ray playback software).

Cons: Doesn't come with any Blu-Ray playback software. This is totally my fault - OEM means you just get the drive. No cables, instruction manual, software, etc.... I knew this, but at the same time I assumed that Windows 7 would have native Blu-Ray video playback like it does with DVDs. Nope. You have to spend $70 on this drive and spend another hefty chunk of cash on separate software. So keep this in mind when you buy this that you will have to spend extra for software because Windows will not have native support.

Other Thoughts: Just keep in mind you'll have to spend extra money for software to have to ability to watch Blu-Ray movies/videos on this drive. Other than that, it works perfectly fine.

2 out of 5 eggsPurchased 2, both unreliable for burning dvd's

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Good while it lasted which was about 3 weeks

Cons: Stopped reading/writing DVD's. The second drive I never even had a chance to write to Bluray. Once it stopped writing and started creating coasters, I pulled it out for another brand.

Other Thoughts: Bought one, burned about 2 Bluray discs and maybe a dozen DVD's and it stopped writing to DVD, then stopped reading them as well. I purchased another, thinking it was a fluke and the same started happening. I RMA'd the drive which cost me $10 shipping and waited over a week and accidentally sent them wrong serial numbered drive ( I had two identical drives that failed) and now I am out 2 drives and about $140.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good.

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Fast; stable; 3D-capable (with appropriate software - NOT included); works well in Win7. Paid just half the price here on Newegg, FROM Newegg, compared to the companies now selling it on here as a Marketplace item.

Cons: Bare drive - no software, cables, etc.; faceplate is kind of a weird design, but not egg-knock-worthy; description on here is a bit misleading.

Other Thoughts: I didn't knock it any eggs for the cons, but for what it cost to use this drive after I ordered it, maybe I should, Idk. I know it's an OEM drive, and many OEM items come w/out accessories, software, etc., but I've also bought many an OEM product which DID come with it, ESPECIALLY when the software is NECESSARY in order to USE the device in the first place. In order to use this drive, you HAVE TO HAVE PLAYBACK SOFTWARE, and the PowerDVD 13 Ultra software (which is awesome, btw) that it lets you think comes with it (as shown in the description) is necessary to play 3D especially, but does NOT come with it at all! I had to fork over another big chunk of change to use this drive for ANYTHING after I'd already bought it, plus dig through my closet to find a SATA cable to use in it, and even some screws to mount it inside my case (screwless drive mounting isn't always 100% reliable). All-in-all, it's a great drive so far, and it best stay that way too, for a LONG time. I did, however, get the extended care plan just to be safe.
