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.

4 out of 5 eggsBlu-Ray Player

Pros: It does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: You need to install the software on the disc to play blu-ray. I was worried about bloatware; however, it does supply the software needed to play blu-ray on your PC.

5 out of 5 eggsoutstanding

Pros: i like the burner , it is fast and quiet. it burns the speeds listed. no buffer under run errors.

Cons: to play blu ray movies you need a hdcp capable monitor. I had to get a new monitor. the led light could be brighter in the front of the drive. it is hard to see at a slight angle.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat more can you ask for

Pros: 3D playback from BR works perfectly. The best thing about this product is that it does exactly as it was advertised to do.

Cons: It wasn't free

Other Thoughts: First, but not last LG optical drive. :D
