1 out of 5 eggsI'm not sure what to think

Pros: Well packaged, made me want to throw it against the wall.

Cons: Bought this for my Lian Li desktop since a slim is the only type that fits, but seems like it's for a laptop. Did not come with cables. Not sure what type of power cable to even look for since no standard cables work.

Other Thoughts: Any advice as to what type of power cable I should buy would be great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat working burner & reader!

Pros: Reads and writes Verbatim, Sony, PlexDisk, Ritek, Ridata, Taiyo Yuden, M-Disc (DVD), et al. Haven't had it be unable to read a disk written yet, and only rejected media that turned out to be visibly bad. Quiet unless burning at maximum rate, if you're playing or reading does a great job of being quiet. Great replacement for older Panasonic BD-RE in a Sager (Clevo) gamer laptop. 6 eggs!

Cons: No screws included. Knocked off an egg for that, but it was already at ;) 6 eggs so 5 eggs it is!
No software for viewing movies (as advertised). Works with PowerDVD, VLC and MPC-HC just fine.

Other Thoughts: Have not tried burning BD-R past DL, nor M-Disc BD-R. No firmware updates or RPC-1 patches available at this time.
Should only be used in applications for a --> 11MM <-- high drive. Unlikely to fit in Ultrabook type laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent compact BD-RE

Pros: Works as it should. Very useful in ITX cases if you need it.

Cons: It does get loud if it reads at a fast rate.

Other Thoughts: I used this with the ToughArmor MB994IPO-3SB in my CM Elite 130 mini ITX case along with 2 SSDs and it was very useful.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Replacement

Pros: It was relatively easy to remove the factory face-plate and slap on my laptop’s (Samsung 700G) original face-plate. (Just be very careful. . .)

Cons: None yet...

Other Thoughts: The drive works as advertised, that’s all I asked for. . .

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Purchased when on sale for $79.99 free shipping. Works with Optical Quantum and Windata. Overall nice drive. Vibration is normal for a laptop drive. Has to do with the thickness of some discs, however does not affect performance whatsoever. LG has put out some very good Optical Products. Have not been disappointed yet.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: easy setup and ran out of the box

Cons: no software incuded for playing bluray

Other Thoughts: as said, it didnt come with software, but that was exspected with it being an OEM. I had to find and pay for a player to play bluray moveis on my laptop due to WMP not having the codecs, and couldnt find a free player that worked as advertized. All and all, I had bought this as a replacement drive for the DVD combo drive in my asus G75 after the old one stopped detecting discs.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality: one warning

Pros: Unit came in great shape and was a bare drive just like I expected. Neweggs excellent experience was everything I wanted it to be. This is the normal laptop drive format of 12.7 mm which is basically a half inch in depth. I'm sure it performs wonderfully from other reveiws.

Cons: Beware if you have a 'thin' laptop. There are plenty of laptop models out there that use a drive that is even slimmer. If the thickest part of your drive's metal casing (without attached bezel [where the eject button is]) is 12.7 mm or a bout a half inch this will fit. If it is less, it will not.

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to hurt this product's rating, but a change in the market means more information should be listed. Some laptops that are very thin use a different format drive. Your laptop manufacturer may not list this new super-slim format in it's product specs. Some manufacturers have switched to a optical drive that is only 9.5 mm thick. This means this normal format will not fit in those laptops. My experience only includes the HP DM4 series which uses an even smaller format 9.5mm drive than the normal 12.7mm, but you should be sure to check that this drive is compatible with your PC. If you cannot find the drive size information from your manufacturer; remove your optical drive (easy for most that would purchase something like this) and compare the inside end to the photo. This is the end with the SATA connector. Look specifically at the spacing of the threaded screw holes. You will notice that the screw holes for a 9.5mm drive are different in the spacing pattern.

4 out of 5 eggsGotta find a mSATA cable

Pros: I'm sure this will be a great drive, has other outstanding reviews and I've never had a bad LG product.

Cons: Partly my fault that I didn't look at the picture of the rear of the drive, but this requires a mini-SATA cable which is NOT included. I'm only deducting 1 egg for this as it's partly my fault and I've yet to read a bad review on this drive.

Really wish it came with the proper cabling or was at least properly listed on the site as mini-SATA.

Other Thoughts: Again, don't want to sound too negative, just disappointed by lack of information on this listing. If I would have paid better attention to the pictures I would have noticed the mini SATA connection.
