Pros: Works as advertised, reads/writes 3.5" FDD disks, memory cards and has a front USB port, what more do you want?
Cons: Clearances a little tight (had a hard time getting it in the drive bay), seems lightly built.
Other Thoughts: This drive let me recover some archived files from some very old floppy disks after my old drive gave up the ghost. Having the integrated card readers and one extra front USB port is handy too.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3 AMD 790FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Solidly made, lots of features, good compatibility
Cons: Sporadic BIOS and driver updates, sometimes erratic behaviour
Other Thoughts: I have this as the base for my system, with a Kingston SNV425 SSD drive as my boot volume and have had terrible issues with data corruption on the drive running Windows 7 64-bit. A partial solution that seems to work sometimes is to leave the system at the logon prompt and walk away for a while, but repeated reboots will slowly corrupt the drive. It appears to be a driver issue, but with slow driver releases I can't really tell.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG WH10LS30 10X Blu-ray Burner - LightScribe Support - Bulk - OEM
Pros: It installs easily, came with software that worked with Win7 x64, and looks pretty.
Cons: After much frustration, I can only get this thing to read/burn DVD and CD discs. It will not recognize any Blu-ray discs that I've put into it. LG support...well, the live chat doesn't seem to be available for me and I'm still waiting for a response from their web support.
Other Thoughts: So far it appears I've purchased a very expensive DVD burner. My recommendation is to give this unit a pass and go with a retail drive from another brand.READ FULL REVIEW
