5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

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: 1.) Good value for price.
2.) Region 0 (Region-free) Solution
3.) Archiving M-Disk burn capability

Cons: I have another one of these, and after about a year, motor started getting noisy, and unit would periodically over-rev and squeal. But at the price, it can be replaced yearly, if necessary

Other Thoughts: When you install the software package, don't let it automatically install everything. If you install (or let the program install) the firmware upgrade, you will NOT be able to play all region DVDs\BDs without changing the default region...and it only changes 5 times. Upgrade will not accept the Region-free modification.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

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 got this for quite cheap when I build my machine a year and some months ago. It has been a real convenience for me, playing bluray movies in a pinch, I backed up some of my media collection and had no issues. Quiet and fast.

Cons: While some people like the weird lump that serves as the button to open the drive bay, I kind of hate it. It doesn't give me the feedback I like to feel from a normal shaped button, and I always question if I actually pressed it. It wasn't annoying enough to affect my rating, though.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems to be a good 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: Recognized instantly by computer, recognized and read bluray and DVDs instantly, doesn't seem to have any trouble with that.

Like the black: sleek. The eject button "lump" is kinda neat.

Cons: Haven't been able to get it to burn DVD+R DL discs faster than 4x, even though they are 8x. Not the discs, since my DVD burner in the same machine burns the same discs at 8x.

Other Thoughts: It says right in the item description that this is a bare, OEM drive, without cables or software. Don't complain about not getting what you were never supposed to get. It's a bargain for a reason!

5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints!!

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 what it's supposed to do and does it well. The first thing I did was I made some back-up discs with BD-R 50gb DL 4x media to fee up some space on my hard drive. I burned 5 of these flawlessly. This unit was detected immediately when installed. (Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)

Cons: None really. Very quiet when reading a disc but louder when burning. Not any louder than the LG DVD Burner it replaced.

Other Thoughts: It is BDXL Compatible (128gb Discs) and plays 3D movies. You might want to get some 3rd party software (Not Included) to play/watch movies.

5 out of 5 eggsLG 14X 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: Double sided Blu-ray burner, also many other optical disk formats. Bargain price. 14X speed. Stores huge amount of data. Can play DVDs and CDs; Blu-ray if you have the software.

Cons: There is a faster (16X) model. Remember, as always, the actual capacity is less than the published capacity by a couple or so of GBs.

Other Thoughts: I use the drive for back-ups for long-term storage. I have not tried writing extended size disks, but I am optimistic that that will work.
Installation was easy - unplug and remove the old and plug in the new. Case is a Corsair 500R (so, screwless), MOBO is ASRock extreme 3. PSU is Corsair 650W. Software is Roxio Burn version 2.0.23.0. I am very pleased with this purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat 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: Installed easily, recognized by Wxp & Win7 systems transparently. No need to make setting changes. Previously installed software showed drive in pull down.
Seen as defalt boot drive by bios without settings changes! This is the kind of hardware installation everyone likes!

Cons: None noted

Other Thoughts: Just purchased BD disks to do write and read functions. Hoping for the same pleasant experience!

Pros: quick delivery and easy to insall. it was under 50 bucks.

Cons: no sata cable or any cables or software but for the money it still was a good deal

Other Thoughts: if your trying to install other drives along with this one make sure you get your cables and make sure you have software to play or burn discs or find out the hard way

1 out of 5 eggsFirst bad unit from Newegg

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 got here pretty quickly

Cons: It burned one Blue Ray disc which it then could not read at all. After that one burn it wouldn't recognize any other Blur Ray disc as even being in the burner no matte what software I used. Even my burning software couldn't see a disc

Other Thoughts: It had to happen eventually. In all the years, and there have been many, that I've used Newegg I've never had a DOA or a piece of equipment fail on first use so I was due.

I've RMA'd it without any problems and it will ship out tomorrow and I'll wait impatiently for its replacement

1 out of 5 eggsJunk ! But looks Nice !

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: Nice smooth front facia, with buttons underneath the front flexible strip. Sleek design.

Cons: Slow to access discs, when it bothers to do so at all. Played a burned dvd fine, but would not play 2 out of 3 pre-recorded Dvd's . First bad DVD drive I have ever owned. And I have had a LOT of PC's over the last 25+ years ...

Other Thoughts: Will have to send this back to LG, and of course eat the return shipping charges. So keep in mind your total cost will probably be higher then just the sale price ... Spend your money on a better quality drive. You won't be saving any money with this drive in the long run ...
