4 out of 5 eggsBlu Ray Burner

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: Burner installed (SATA cable) easily and Windows 7 Home Pro recognized drive. Some said the firmware should be flashed. I burnt a dvd and Bluray w/no problem. You will need software to watch blu rays on your pc if you don't have it yet, Windows media will play dvd's no problem. Blu ray actually burnt faster than dvd!? Either way, no problem so far but did buy the extended 2 year warranty just in case. Would recommend.

Cons: None yet.

2 out of 5 eggsBusted Drive

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: Got it at a good price.
I was able to get it working on Linux within a reasonable amount of time.

Cons: Seems to be broken within 6 months. I bought the drive around November of last year. About a month ago it decided it wasn't going to read or even recognize a disc in the drive. I am not certain as to what the problem is but after a month of debugging my last thought is to replace the drive. It no longer will work with my Ubuntu system, I made no changes or updates that I can attribute the drive failure too either.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend it

5 out of 5 eggsFast, gets the job done

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: Good functionality, especially at this price point.

Cons: None so far, but I haven't put mine through a lot of stress.

Other Thoughts: Needed a BD burner to replace a USB 2.0 powered unit that apparently croaked due to power issues. Wanted something a lot more robust, so assembled this LG drive in a USB 3.0 5.25" enclosure. MUCH faster BD ripping than my old drive! Have not yet burnt a BD-RE but my Win7 system recognizes the blanks in this drive.

3 out of 5 eggsDidn't last long

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: Was fast...

Cons: Lasted about a week while working fine and then up and quit. Short of beating on it with a hammer I tried everything to get it going again, but to no avail.

Other Thoughts: I hope my experience with the first drive was a fluke as I have had bad burners in the past and really lived to regret purchasing them. New drive should be here soon as the egg covered my return cost and is making good on the purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsLG Burner WH16NS40OEM

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: Works as advertised. When it decides to show up. No issues with the other 3. They burn and read very fast. I love them and would buy more. I only give them 4 stars because of the issue with the 1. When it shows up i can burn on it like no tomorrow. No coasters at all even with the issues. Thanks for reading.

Cons: I bought 4 and I only have a problem with 1 that keeps dropping out. In the bios it turns to funky gibberish and locks up the computer. You can restart it a couple times then will show up like nothing happened. Even updated the firmware to see if it helps and still has issues. I even moved to different sata ports and i can replicate it every time. Thanks for reading.

Other Thoughts: I wish I could get the one rmaed through newegg but it has been over a month already. Thanks for reading.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat physically, but no support

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: My drive can read DATA discs without issue.

Cons: Anyone intending to use this as a Bluray DVD player, look elsewhere. This drive is OEM and includes no cables, software, or anything--it is ONLY a physical drive and that is all. It will not read Bluray movie discs, and barely even reads DVD movie discs. If all you intend to do is read and write data discs this works fine, but this is a terrible choice for this intending to use it for media.

4 out of 5 eggsIt... works

This review is from: LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: Relatively cheap blu-ray player, I unfortunately missed a bunch of deals on other models so I can't really recommend this one over another brand.

However it worked from the start and I really appreciate that. I had a lot of issues (for other reasons) when installing windows and I needed my optical drive to work from the get go.

Looks nice and the aesthetics match my black Antec case well.

Cons: Kind of pricey compared to other models.

I haven't actually burned a blu-ray on this thing yet so my input is rather limited but so far so good.
