4 out of 5 eggsBe warned: Blurays cannot be played on analouge

Pros: Overall good CD drive, kinda weird automatic driver install made it hard to finally get it to work, but after I did it works just fine. No problems after install.

Cons: You cannot play Blu-ray disks if your computer outputs to a VGA monitor (legally). This is a Sony "copyright protection" thing that, on (legal) software will refuse to play Blu-ray disks if your monitor uses VGA. This could render your brand new Blu-ray drive useless, so check beforehand.

Other Thoughts: Seriously Sony should be arrested for not warning people about the fact that they block analogue from being used to play Blu-rays. Not LG's fault though, has nothing to do with the drive itself, just Sony's greed.

2 out of 5 eggsdying after 8 months

Pros: It was a cheap Blu-ray drive because it didn't come with any of the video playing software (which usually expires after a year anyway, then you'd have to pay 3x the cost of this drive for new software).

Cons: I have been using two of these drives for 8 months in my server, and one of them started dying. It occasionally encounters errors reading perfect discs (which read properly in the other drive, or in the defective drive after waiting a while and retrying), or stops detecting the insertion of a disc, or stops responding to commands from the computer (such as to eject the disc).

The only reason I gave this 2 eggs instead of 1 is because one of the drives is still working (but who knows, that may also start to go soon).

I use these drives exclusively for ripping my large DVD collection (not even blu-rays). I estimate each drive has ripped around 280 discs so far, which is not at all too much to expect from a drive.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, does as advertised

Pros: Quiet for an optical drive, fast read and write speeds.

Cons: Doesn't come with playback software, so you'll either have to rip your blu-rays or pay $60 (outrageous, I know) for playback software.

Other Thoughts: Not much you can say about an optical drive other than "it works" and this one does.

5 out of 5 eggsLG Black 12X BD-ROM

Pros: It works as advertised and no obnoxious rattling.

Cons: Fine then, since I absolutely HAVE to fill this field out; It didn't come with any Barry White or Parliament cds.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't call it a con, but I just like having an actual eject button as opposed to part of the faceplate being the 'push' area...maybe I'm just old.

4 out of 5 eggsIf you know OEM, you know what you're getting.

Pros: Super easy installation. Plays my discs like a charm.

Cons: You need the software to play blu-rays. Doesn't come with any cables. I knew that going in, so it doesn't really diminish the quality.

Other Thoughts: Would probably spring for something that can read discs out of the box next time.
