1 out of 5 eggsMakes Noise Unless You Leave Disk In, Poor Read Success

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: Blue Ray Disk Burner

Cons: The drive has a known defect where it continues to look for a disk when none is present (OS independent). This involves a noisy mechanical movement. Only solution is to leave a disk in. Also my unit arrived unwrapped and out of the protective plastic wrap.

Other Thoughts: Still, got to admit it, I love do love me some New Egg when it comes to upgrading my PC.

4 out of 5 eggsHandles all of my needs.

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's ok.

Cons: - Retrieving data from the discs is painfully slow. Coming in at 8MBs and building up to ~15MBs.

- You need to buy or find a free alternative to play blu-ray movies on it.

Other Thoughts: - I bought this to make a hard copy back-up of my entire everything on blu-ray discs.

- I know it doesn't seem like it, but I do like it. It's just nothing too spectacular.

Pros: The blue light on the front looks cool.

Cons: This drive is really bad. I got it for my new build thinking hey it looks really cool. Nope it doesn't read discs most of the time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 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: It was very easy to install in my computer.
Took the old DVD burner out, hooked this new Blu-ray up and Windows 7 recognized it right away.

Cons: Can't find a thing bad with the burner, but Newegg needs to keep a close eye on who they use for delivery.
When tracking my package, it said it was out for delivery in a city 440 miles away.

1 out of 5 eggsLocks up randomly my 64-bit Win 7 machine

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 if didn't hang, maybe I could find some.

Cons: This is the second one of these drives I've had. I bought a replacement for the first when it began locking up. Anything that tried to access it or merely scanned the drives would hang for 20 minutes or so. The eject button on the front of the drive would do nothing. Then it would wake up and work for a while.

Apparently quite foolishly, I bought a new one, figuring it must be a failed drive. Nope. This new one exhibits the same behavior, even after updating the firmware on drive. Another reviewer reports the same problem with an Asus motherboard and that may be the problem: I have an Asus P6T Deluxe MB with a Core i7 920 with 24 GB RAM.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks only when it wants to

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's spins the discs?

Cons: I don't really use my disc drive, but when I do I expect it to read EVERYTHING I throw at it. Especially when it's a blu ray reader. I'll toss in one dvd and it'll work fine. Then the next one I put in decides to not even read the disc. It doesn't even acknowledge a disc being in there.

Don't waste your money on this garbage. I even went to LG's website for a firmware update and it's still has issues reading discs.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

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 reads all of the disks that I have without a hitch, and I haven't made any coasters yet

Cons: It's an OEM drive, so no CD burner, nor BluRay player software comes with it. You'll have to buy that separately.

5 out of 5 eggsNice 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: The Burner reads and writes recordable CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray disks. It is quiet and has a nice appearance. There isn't much that you can say about the drive that isn't already contained in the specifications.

Cons: The drives firmware version was 1.00 which has been replaced by version 1.01 and 1.02 so the drive has been sitting on the shelf for a while. The first thing that you need to do if you purchase this drive is to check the firmware and install the latest version.

Other Thoughts: Other than the firmware being slightly out of date the drive is just fine. I do not consider the firmware to be critical enough to warrant a lower rating. All in all I am happy with this drive and I suspect that you will be happy too if you purchase the drive. Keep in mind that it is listed as a OEM drive and that is all that you will get. It doesn't come with screws, cables, or Software. If you want and expect all of those then purchase a retail drive instead of a OEM.

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
