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.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this multi 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: Super-Multi drive with M-Disk support. Okay. M-Disk is a bit out there but to save my data on a...well a piece of rock is kind of cool.

Cons: No problems so far.

Other Thoughts: M-Disk... Think of it this way, in 900+ years, if someone can find an M-Disk ROM, my image will still have a perfectly preserved nose. Can the ancients say that about their statues right now? I have one of these along with a 14X in my PC (This one is in my server for adding movies to the library) and have had no issues whatsoever.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

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: Bought this during a new build session. Figured the low price was worth a try and had a few uses for a Blu-ray reader and writer.

Could not be more disappointed.

I can get the drive visible in Windows 7 Ultimate, but it won't read any discs, even ones that work perfectly in all other drives.

There is little information about fixes for this, and the little that is out there has done nothing for me. Thoroughly disappointed.

Other Thoughts: I like LG, and will likely buy their products in the future, but this one is not one I would recommend to anyone. Support is nearly non-existent. Cheap price should not equal cheap product in this case... but it did.

5 out of 5 eggsBurns M-Disc Blu-Rays Great

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: Large, easy-to-find eject button.
Flawless performance so far.
Haven't done any read/write speed tests, but works great!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive because my WH12NS39 Blu-Ray burner was unable to burn the new M-Disc Blu-Rays. This drive burns them flawlessly. I've burned 5 full discs of pictures, and all have validated perfectly. I now have a true archival solution, and can free up lots of hard drive space.
