Pros: It's quiet, fast read times when it works
Cons: It consistently will start seeking for no reason (with no disc in) when you boot up the PC and will not stop until you pull the power from the drive itself, shutting down the machine will not stop it (will start again when you power back up)
After updating to the newest firmware, it doesn't even work half the time, the BIOS doesn't even see it. Have to rollback to original firmware to get the original issue back.
Other Thoughts: I always trusted LG to make good products but this one was a dude from the beginning.... I wish I would have RMA's it from the start but now it is way past too late and I am stuck with a some thing just better than a paperweight....READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It reads Blu-ray movies with programs that are not provided. the DVD burner function is fast,
Cons: Constant seek issues.... not sure what else to call it but when I turn on the PC it will just seek nonstop, the only way to stop it is to unplug the power on the back of the drive wait a few secs and plug it back in. It occasionally even happens while trying ti use the drive. I have tried restarting the PC with no luck. I am not sure how to fix this, so it becomes quite useless often, luckily I have 2 other SATA DVD burners I can use. I have flashed the firmware to the latest version it still has this issue.
Other Thoughts: When it works it works great but the problem is, Ihave to leave the side of my pc off all the time so I can unplug and plug this drive back in at least 3 times a weekREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Awesome boost in graphics from the 8500GT I had. Saw someone say they had problem with dual monitors, I have been running a dell 21" widescreen and my 20" Sharp LCD TV off the DVI and VGA ports since day 1 with only 1 little problem and 1 weird problem.
Cons: Having a weird issue with the PC not wanting to boot when powered off...not sure if it's the DVI/VGA adapter I have on it but when I wiggle it a little and turn the power off and on it tends to work. the other issue is there is a lot of noise on the DVI port.....not sure if this is also caused by me using a DVI adapter or not but trying to find a old DVI cable (monitor is not Dual Link for some reason) is a pain in the local area and paying shipping on a cable is stupid so guess unless someone knows a way to get rid of the noise I will suffer for the time being since it only really shows bad on really dark colors
Other Thoughts: Love the card so glad I bought it, just wish I could fix this noise issueREAD FULL REVIEW
