1 out of 5 eggsBlu-Ray Burner

Pros: Nice looking. Worked very well when I first installed it. Have burned numerous DVDs with it. When I tried to burn a Blu-ray disk it would not recognize the disk. Never could get it to burn a Blu-Ray disk.

Cons: Started having trouble with it recognizing any disk. Eventually it would not recognize any disk I put in it. The only thing it has done consistently is to open tray and close tray.

Other Thoughts: Tried updating firmware but that did not help.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes What It Is Supposed To Do

Pros: Reads and writes to just about any media you can find. I've burned tons of DVD-DL and a number of BD-DL disks. I had sooo many problems with other units burning DL disks, but this one has yet to burn a coaster.

Cons: A bit pricey, but it beats spending money on a lesser unit that won't do what it's advertised to do. When burning and fully spun-up, the disk in the tray is really flying, and you can certainly hear it sing. But normal reading is next to silent.

Other Thoughts: Been through a dozen BD burners, and this is the only one that does everything it's supposed to do without errors or complaint.

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.
