Pretty good. Didn't last more than 4 years.

Pros: - Great while it worked.

Cons: - Bought at the end of 2011. Intermittent inability to read disks (and loud sounds) after about 3 years.

Overall Review: - I've got 3 other LG bluray drives. I'm replacing this one with another LG. It's not the brand. It may be this particular model, or I may have gotten a bad one.

Lasted 2 years

Pros: Worked great for 2yrs

Cons: It doesn't want to read any optical media (CD-R, DVD, BluRay) It opens and closes and the lights blink but when you try to view what is on the disc it causes explorer to freeze up like it was reading a bad disc.. The problem just started and the drive just so happens to be out of warranty.. I bet I haven't even burned 100 discs with this drive. Updating the firmware hasn't helped.. I think the drive has issues with the lasers. I've had drives die on me but they were just plain worn out from burning hundred or thousands of discs.. This Blu-ray burner just barely lasted 2 years.

Overall Review: What a disappointment.. The drive has been a champ up until a week ago when I started having problems. Why can't they make stuff that lasts more than a year or 2?? This this had seen really light duty compared to my DVD burners.. The next one will most likely be something other than an LG..

Plug and Play

Pros: Worked straight out of the box.

Cons: This device is compatible with Windows Vista and XP. (I have 7) I'm not sure if this is related but anytime I take a disk out of the device a pop up screen comes up informing me I need to insert the disc into the drive. (I am completely exited from the program on the disk) Mostly just annoying- not worth a star.

Overall Review: Need LightScribe software of course because this is OEM. BluRay cannot utilize LightScribe because the layers that would be etched are used on a BluRay disc.

Does what it does well.

Pros: Price, burns blu-ray, burns DVD, Burns CD, and has 3D playback. It doesn't take long to read a Blu-ray or DVD, and burning is so fast. The blu-ray suite program mine came with works great no issues other than 2 channel audio but when your listening with headsets you don't miss surround sound. The other thing I liked was the black finish matches my li lian dragon force case.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Should have bout two.

Weak Drive

Pros: At least I got to install my os and import all of my music before it took a dump.

Cons: Weak

Overall Review: The drive worked fine for a couple of weeks and then it just stopped reading discs of any kind. The drive shows up in device manager but whenever I put in a disc it just doesn't even bother to spin it, just makes a couple of clicks. I tried updating the firmware but the updater can't even recognize the drive. At least it was useful for my OS installation and music rips.
