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: None

Cons: Just bad, never tried burning. Couldn't get to work with a couple of DVD's when first installed. Not home often so next time home tried updating firmware but still wouldn't play certain DVD's. Now tried in different computer- same issue. They play in all my other 7 computers fine and the dvd player. Wont buy another LG product... not worth the effort to return, been 7 months now and have used 4 times.

5 out of 5 eggsLG DVD RW BLUE RAY

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: Like this alot. It's burns great and you can not even here it running. It does as expected. This is my second LG DVD RW and really like their products.

Cons: The only thing I do not like is if you have another DVD ROM in your computer, you have to disconnect it before you load drivers or if you update the firmware.

2 out of 5 eggsBAD BAD BAD

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: It work's well with DVD's and that's it! OH it look's nice. I gave this 2 Eg's to be nice as well.

Cons: Well i run a small computer shop and got this drive with ASI a re-seller. got it thought it worked fine.I got the drive back in OCT and never used the Blu-Ray anything til just now. 1-15-15. I went to rip a BD and play one the first time and it DID NOT WORK!!! I have 2 of thes'e drive's. The other one work's fine Riping playing excrta. The drive that is not working will do anything you want with JUST DVD's and CD's all day every day. But nothing with DVD-DL or Blu-Ray!

Other Thoughts: The first thing i did was go online and hit LG up to get a new drive! Now the good part is they had no problem sending me a new drive...THE BAD is you better be ok going without a drive more then 2 WEEKS! That's not ok im my book. They admitd they gave me a bad drive but want to get the bad drive first B4 SENDING ANYTHING OUT!!!!!!! Now you tell me who would be ok with olny having this drive a short ammount of time and then being without it 4 2 week's. I offerd to give them a Credit card to hold fund's just send me out a dang part! Nope they would not do so. I WILL NEVER GET LG DRIVE'S NOW! My advice stay AWAY froum this drive. I just got a BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS full price but i called ASUS and asked them if i get a bad drive what they would do...They said if so they would send me the new 1 first. NOT be like LG.

2 out of 5 eggsQuality Control Issues?

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: Drive was able to read CDs and Blurays OK...

Cons: ...but was to read most DVDs.

Other Thoughts: Returning for a refund was a relatively painless process, so no complaints there. This drive may have been a rare dud, but it was enough to convince me to purchase a Pioneer 16x Bluray drive instead another LG. My advise if you decide to buy this would be to test the drive very thoroughly.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't come with PowerDVD

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: Cheap
Lots of Features
BDXL and M-Disc Support

Cons: No PowerDVD or other Blu-Ray Movie Disc playing software

Other Thoughts: I like this drive, but it doesn't come with PowerDVD or any software that allows you to watch Blu-Ray movie discs. If you're adding this to a computer that doesn't have the software / codecs / licenses to play Blu-Ray movie discs, you may just want to buy a non-OEM blu-ray drive that does have that software.

It may be cheaper than buying a drive and the software separately.
