5 out of 5 eggsQuite Fantastic

Pros: I've been using this for about a month and a half now. I enjoy how quick it has been for both reading, and writing. Comes with PowerDVD 10 suite, which works well, however annoying it is.

Cons: PowerDVD can be quite annoying, as well is the startup launcher for the firmware update, which can be disabled in startup.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: Everything works smoothly. M-Discs burn without any issues. Especially like the front switch.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: M-Disc compatibility makes this the one to get if permanent archiving is important.

5 out of 5 eggsBluRay burner writer

Pros: no coasters, Fast, reads more than most as far as compatable br discs. I have two of the model number before this drive in older builds and this if ofr the newest build. Used an old computer to make sure i had no issues with it. The model i know from the go will burn a 25 gig disc for data in about 12 minutes. and that was using a 4x bluray disc the amazing part is the reader read the disc as an 8x and the time was even faster. Optical Quantam Discs sold on Egg here..
I am happy as this is the newest faster model and it is another lg drive software is as usual.. could always be better but it does work .. so no problem. NO Coasters in 50 blu ray discs for Opticala Quantum so that should give you all an idea.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: one thought i have had which i forgot.. i am able to even do a little surfing while burning the discs. I do not recommend doing that with burning operations gonig on.. bu i got lucky on that one.

5 out of 5 eggsBH16NS40 Writes to M-DISC 4x CLV

Pros: Bought this drive for the sole purpose of burning/testing M-DISC media. NewEgg needs to update the Tech Spec, but I confirmed with LG that on their spec sheet that this drive, in fact, is "M-DISC READY" and not "M-DISC SUPPORTED". The key difference is that M-DISC Ready drives Write to M-Disc media and M-Disc Supported means it can read the disc. This is a silly marketing ploy as any written data to M-Discs are 100% DVD-R compatible and follow ISO standards so ANY DVD Reader will able to access the content of these discs which has a rock-like material substrate that will not degrade at all. Blu-Ray (SL) of 25GB on these M-Discs will really be the way to go to preserve important archival video and photos for personal use.

LG Spec Sheet:

Cons: None at this time. Quiet drive and make sure you update the firmware to get the current write strategies for media.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg please update the Spec sheet to include "M-DISC 4X CLV" on the Write side of the list.

5 out of 5 eggsWell, this was nice.

Pros: Runs Bluray and comes with the software to run it. A great buy for anyone looking to not have to deal with the troubles that comes with normal Bluray writers.

Cons: BUT WAIT! There's more! Come to find out that my VGA monitor can't run the software because it lacks some HD thing. I have to admit, this set me back because I can't exactly deal with this issue, so I pretty much just got something really expensive and fancy for show when I probably will rarely use it now.

Other Thoughts: Again, Software. I hate that kind of stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Plug & Play. I use Nero software for BD burning and CHEAP BD 25 disks to burn data and movies to. Not one single coaster or error in more than 3 spindles burned. (About 150 disks. Using Optical Quantum BD 25's.)

It takes about 1.5 hours to burn a full BD 25 movie to disk with data checking.

Barely hear it running while burning.

Burns DVD MoDisks and HIgh quality Verbatim BDs equally well.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I got the Retail package which came with everything to hook it up and get started.

Just Google for a FREE BD Movie playing software program to get going.

It's not LG or the burner's fault that it doesn't play BD Movie disks out of the box.

Keep in mind that most ALL DVD and BD drives are Sata I drives and NOT Sata II or III.

Difference in speed will only be noticed while burning a disk in most cases. Not so much in transferring data from the Optical drive to a USB stick or HDD.

Pros: seems fast I guess, worked adequately when I installed a bunch of stuff after building my computer

Cons: Compared to my ssd this optical drive doesn't seem very fast

Other Thoughts: From what I read it was the best optical drive on the site which is why I bought it but it works good
