2 out of 5 eggsStopped Playing Blu Ray 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: It still plays DVD movies and regular CD's just fine.

Cons: Had to download software to play BluRay movies. So doing that was a pain since there is no free BluRay software out there for Windows 8.1. The movies worked great for about a month, then all of a sudden, no BluRay movies will work. Even the ones I've played before do not work. Every time I attempt to start a movie, it gives me a corruption error. Thinking this could be software related, I downloaded a new application that plays Blu Rays. It gives me the same error with multiple movies.

Stay away from this product.

I'm only giving 2 eggs because it still plays DVD movies just fine.

Other Thoughts: I would love to get a replacement or a refund, but i'm too far out for that. Oh well. I guess i'll just bite the bullet and get a new Blu Ray player.

3 out of 5 eggsBlu-Ray no 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: Works well playing and burning DVD's an CD's. Compatible with Windows 7 and my Dell. Is very quiet when winding up or down.

Cons: Came with no software disk and I had to buy third party program to get a Blu-Ray player to use with it. After I did all that I still can't play Blu-Ray as it tells my system is not HDCP compliant. The only way I could play the disks would be to hook it up to a HDMI TV or monitor and then I still don't know if it will work. Basically if you buy this unit or any others that say they will play Blu-Ray you may have to spend another $200-$300 to have everything you need and it still may not work.

Other Thoughts: I will stick to plain DVD's for now as they are almost completely reliable to work once installed. No wonder they have them on sale!

5 out of 5 eggsReally nice Blu-Ray burner

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 does everything it says it will.
The drive is very good looking. You can't really tell in the pictures but the LG logo is chrome and the finish on the drive is like a brushed black aluminum or something it looks really really slick. Very high quality look.

Cons: You have to buy separate software to be able to watch DVD's or Blu-Rays but that's what you get when you buy an OEM drive, right?

Other Thoughts: A mistaken buy as (OEM) Bare Drive. No software, No drivers, only what you see in the picture.

4 out of 5 eggsBe aware, does not come with software to play Blu-Rays

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: Does exactly as it says, reads blu-rays and was easy to install.

Cons: Be aware that this product does NOT come with software to play blu-rays. It can read blu-rays and open them, but in order to play blu-rays, you need proper software to do so. Sony is not very nice with their licensing. You can do it for free on VLC (legally), but it doesn't always work due to the ever-changing DRM on blu-ray discs. As a general rule, the newer the disc, the less likely the free way will work.
There are a few free legal programs, but you will need to be content with a giant water mark on your image. I personally broke down and spend another $80 on PowerDVD Pro in order to play my discs.

So keep that in mind, you will likely NOT be able to play your blu-rays for JUST $50. Expect another $50-100 to get the software.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid the LG WH14NS40

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: None.

Cons: Does a bad job at reading DVDs, have to eject disk a few times before a proper read.

Did not recognize Blu-rays.

Other Thoughts: I bought this LG Blu-ray back in Nov 2013 and the Blu-ray burner had never worked.

I realized late in 2014 that the Blu-ray laser was DOA after I tried to burn a Blu-ray using Verbatim and Maxell disks.

Even though I bought a Blu-ray, I never got to use the Blu-ray feature once.

When I contacted LG for an RMA, I was declined. Never buying an LG product again.

Not the first LG burner to give me problems either.

Learned my lesson and I have since elected to go with a Pioneer Blu-ray burner instead.

5 out of 5 eggsGood solid 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: Quick and easy install no special setup needed.

Cons: Does not come with software to allow you to play Blu Ray movies, so you will need to install a program if you want to use it to watch Blu Ray movies.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this drive to anyone who needs a Blu Ray burner for data storage or whatever you need to put on Blu Ray disk.
