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.

3 out of 5 eggs

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: Has all the toys,

Cons: this is a bare drive, no software, no nothing, do not buy unless you are willing to spend more than the drive for software. 3D Blu-Ray is owned by Sony so every one has to pay royalties. So software to run this drive to its total capabilities is going to cost you plenty and their are only 3 available on the market. but the Blu-Ray plays and copy's great. the 3D and M is a ? I have always hated Sony now I have another reason. For 30 years I have boycotted Sony. you should do the same.

Other Thoughts: Software has not caught up with demand

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says

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 does everything it says it will do. It's a CD drive... Come on... Read the specs... Not too Loud... I would buy it again for sure

Cons: It doesnt come with any software for watching Blu-Ray movies. If you havent learned this yet, Win 7 Ultimate and Win 8 do. Win 8.1 doesnt have DVD and Blu-Ray playback support. You have to have Win 8.1 Pro (because Media center is not offered for Win 8.1 reg) then download Media Center for 10 bucks so that sucks. You will have to download a third party program all the free ones didnt work very well. Hard to navigate etc. I used Cyberlink Power DVD. It works just fine...

1 out of 5 eggsDrive has problems!

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: Price

Cons: I have ordered a # of these Drives.
Have received a # of them that had actuator problems and also show up as DVD/RW in my Computer in Windows 7.
Updated Firmware caused more problems.
Have had problems with January & April Manufacture dates

Other Thoughts: Will stay on the sidelines on buying this Drive until LG stars shipping with latest firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Ol' OptiDrive

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 works, does what it's suppose to do. Not much to say other than that.. Suppose it was an easy install, however, that was more on my case. Doesn't require any software, PnP, most are though..

Cons: None that I'm aware of, but, I haven't had it that long.. To be seen :P

Other Thoughts: It looks good, very sleek. The eject button is bigger than on other drives I've previously owned, but it tapers on the sides; I think this is a plus as far as visuals go.
