1 out of 5 eggsGarbage Dont Buy

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50

Pros: NONE

Cons: Contacted LG and got nowhere, and the cost of sending it to LG for repair will cost you more than the drive and not only that LG does not warranty after 90 days Parts only, so if you buy this item you can forget the warranty.
Not worth the hassle, spend on something better.

Other Thoughts: Worked 1 time to install some software on a laptop, than was lying around on a shelf for a few months. Now I tried using it And nothing Just dead Garbage don't buy, I’ll work for you a few times and then Garbage don't waste your money

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50

Nice looking brushed finish

Cons: Could use a few more words in the documentation department

4 out of 5 eggsNice and effective!!

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50

Pros: I love it. Excellent size for a product that performs a necessity for IT professionals and personal use. It's so simple to use. IT EVEN WORKS IN LINUX (Linux Mint 15 - based off of ubuntu). I love this little dvd+-rw drive. It's amazingly portable and so helpful while out and about while on the job. If a computer needs to boot from cd, just hook this guy up, turn on the computer, edit BIOS, pop in boot cd, and away you go!! It's a super life saver, especially if someone doesn't have the hardware or theirs is broken. It makes a lot of stuff sooooo simplified and it's really portable. I love this little thing!!

Cons: None really. I just hope it lasts, because I really enjoy its functionality.

Other Thoughts: n/a

4 out of 5 eggsDrivers

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50

Pros: Very slim, feels sturdy, nice modern look!

Cons: Wish the cable was just a few inches longer. However a longer cable won't cost more than $2.

Other Thoughts: When I plugged it in, Windows 8 x64 picked it right up. When I put in the Driver CD, about 3 seconds later I blue-screened with Memory Errors, re-booted without unplugging it, immediately blue-screened again. Re-boot, took out the CD, no issues.

3 out of 5 eggsGood drive, bad cable

This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50

Pros: Good solid little drive. Inexpensive when I got it and writes to M-DISC media. Works great when you have a good cable hooked to it.

If you don't know what M-DISC is, go look it up. You want it.

Cons: The cable mine came with doesn't work. I subbed out an old, thin junky one without a ferrite choke (what would be seem to be in all respects a junk cable) and was instantly in business.

I grabbed my multimeter to test and found that ALL the connections in the cable it shipped with have breaks in them. This points to a stiff cable that became brittle during storage and cracked internally.

Other Thoughts: It gets minus 2 eggs for the bad cable.

I know that seems harsh, but if I didn't have other mini USB cables I would have had to either purchase an overpriced one locally with my fingers crossed that it worked or RMA the drive.

So the cable itself gives it -1, and for it being such a forehead slappingly stupid mistake I'm docking it one more for a total of -2 eggs.

3/5
