As advertised 11/9/2019 10:11:22 AM

Overall Review: I have ripped around 40 DVDs so far, with speeds around 7-8x. Note that you cannot play DVDs or Blu-ray discs without proper software. You will need a SATA data cable to run from the drive to your motherboard and a SATA power cable to run from the drive to your power supply (hopefully your motherboard or PSU came with these)

Buyer beware, there is no native support for Blu-Ray 9/25/2019 5:03:41 PM

Pros: It's a very fast read/write drive for DVDs, and supports pretty much every format. It can also read/write UNPROTECTED Blu-Ray.

Cons: Operating systems do not come with a native Blu-Ray decryption tool for protected Blu-Ray. If you want to watch your favorite Blu-Ray movies, you're going to need third party software. And depending on the software you use, you might need a display with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Also most Blu-Ray players lack mouse support.

Overall Review: It's a decent system, but the WITHOUT SOFTWARE should be in all caps, because that's actually more important than it sounds.

LG Good Brand 7/25/2019 3:48:52 PM

Pros: Good product , works as it should

Cons: the included software was bare basics, try and get the full version of this suite separately.
you can purchase without this software and save some money.

Overall Review: Well it does work as it should, when upgrading also remember to use DVI or HDMI connection.
Blue Ray doesn't play on VGA connection. Buy software separately.

Great optical drive, M-disc and BDXL compatible 7/24/2019 4:36:27 PM

Pros: Fair price, reliable, M-disc and BDXL compatible.
Despite what the video game and digital distribution industry want you to think, optical discs cannot be beat for archiving/long term back up. If you have data that you do not want to lose then you should have it backed up on a blu-ray or M-disc DVD and/or blu-ray. HDDs, SSDs, flash drives, SD cards, even tape, will not outlast a DVD or blu-ray, let alone M-disc.
I use CDBurnerXP when burning data to a disc. I use the free Leawo blu-ray player software to play blu-rays on my PC using this drive.

Cons: No cons on the drive itself, just a side note. Unfortunately, due to Valve, GOG, EA, Ubisoft, etc, and the digital distribution industry's crusade against physical copies and optical discs and their crusade to brainwash people into accepting being charged for a download, fewer and fewer new cases have even 1 5.25 bay so this drive is not compatible with most new cases. I stocked up on cases with at least 3 5.25 bays because of this. Luckily USB optical drives exist, even ones that are M-disc and BDXL compatible, but I still prefer internal drive such as this one.

Overall Review: Fair price, reliable, M-disc and BDXL compatible. Hasn't disappointed me, I'll be stocking up on more of these in the future.

Piece of garbage - hasn't worked from day 1 7/8/2019 3:09:49 PM

Pros: Replace it with a drive from other than LG

Cons: On the same day I installed it, It could not read cd's, DVD, or Blu-rays and cannot burn cd's using Windows 10 cd burn app. I even had a computer expert try to get it to work, even so far as to install a firmware update after spending almost three hours fussing with it, still cannot get it to work. There is no software driver for it and nothing on the Internet to troubleshoot the problem

Overall Review: My recommendation is don't throw your money away on a useless piece of garbage.
