Pros: The unit works perfectly with Vista Home Premium. I use this for Blu-ray burning for my video business. It works seamlessly with Sony Vegas 9 Platinum on my Sony Vaio laptop. It not only works well but has a very attractive case that the photos doesn't do justice to. It is about the size of a bare drive and includes everything you need to put it to immediate use. The speed of burning DVDs and Blu-ray is VERY good. I like it!
Cons: The price is a little high but I feel it is worth it if you need an external Blu-ray drive.
My first attempt to go to Blu-ray was with a LiteOn internal drive mounted in a external USB / SATA enclosure. This setup worked fine for reading discs but I never could get it to burn anything. I spent way to much time trying to get this setup to work. The equipment was returned to Newegg (thanks!) and the LG was ordered. Skip the headache and buy the LG external!
Overall Review: The software bundle that is included allows you to get the most from the Blu-ray media as a storage device. Good for archiving large data files such as video (pre-rendered) so that it can be re-edited again later if needed. My videos are all recorded in HD which makes huge files. Add a second camera and other artwork and I typically have about 22-24GB per hour of video for the raw files. I will be glad when the BD media comes down in price. It is only a matter of time.
Pros: where to start? reading and writing speeds are great (read the specs) i run it on a HP Compaq model SR2017CL from 2006. run flawless on an older machine. blazing speed on my newer laptop HP G70-250US. perfect images of copied discs with the software suite provided, but i noticed it runs slightly faster with Nero9 (maybe its just me). its a perfect addition for anyone who needs the extra space or for backing up your Blu-ray movies. i would recommend it to anyone. the price is just right also
Cons: none so far, only had it for a month
Overall Review: play around with the type of media that you put into it. i have used the vinpower digital 25gb BD-R's and they work great. if your looking for BD-R DL's i recommend panasonic's BD-R DL's. both work perfectly. although the price of the media is a little ridiculous at the current moment its well worth it thus far. hopefully sometime in the near future the price of media will drop.
Pros: This is an excellent Blue Ray Recorder. I just want to add that it has perfect playback on a Dell Inspiron 2.4 gig Quad Core with 4gig Ram on Vist Home Premium with a 256MB ATI Radion Video Card. Using a Monster DVI-HDMI converter, & Monster HDMI cable it plays back great on your high def TV. 2 minutes to hook-up. I bought this with Pinnacle Studio 12.0 to put together HD Home movies, but the fact that it doubles to watch movies with is even better. Buy it.
Pros: I first tried the Buffalo 6X Blu-Ray Burner although it worked I had a few coasters and the front loading tray door broke very cheap design. Then I decided to purchased this LG, it is absolutely outstanding! It's quite solidly built and fast and a joy to operate. I'm using a MacBookPro & latest version of Toast.
Overall Review: Quality is worth a few bucks more, you will not be disappointed.
Pros: Works as advertised.
Delivery better than advertised
Cons: No e-SATA on this model yet.
Pros: Awesome blu-ray writing capability out of the box for my Mac Mini.
Cons: I use Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 on the PC, which required XP x64. The drive, however, isn't recognizable under Windows XP x64. Very sad.
Overall Review: If it supports Vista x64, then why not XP x64?!?!? Is there a fix out there?
