Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great loadingI bought this for my new HP desktop PC. Works great and I love the tray loading feature. New PC has laptop type DVD disk, which you must snap disk onto center of drive. Seems flimsy, tray loading much better. Works fine for Windows 10 no drivers needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Started off great but now having issuesI originally purchased back in November when I learned my new pc had only one internal slim type drive with speeds of only 8x. I was thrilled to learn that this product had up to 24x speed. It worked great for about a month and then I started noticing burning errors and while reading a disc it would seize up in the middle of the read. For example while checking a burned disc for errors it would stop reading the disc (the light stopped flashing green) but the drive still makes noise as if it is still reading the disc. Also the allotted time it would show to complete would increase instead of decrease letting me know it wasn't working. I thought it was a fluke so I took it back for an exchange and now the same exact thing is happening with the new one. I'm not sure what's causing this as I have tried it on both my usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports. When it freezes like this I either have to restart my pc or unplug the power adapter from the drive and plug it back in. It's very annoying that I can't use it to read discs back to back without this happening. Other than that it works great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good productHave had it about 4 months now. Only use every now and then, not every day, but it has worked perfectly. Was easy to set up, has been easy to use. Has worked well, been a good product, the price was fair and it appears well made so I think it was a good buy, good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can always count on itI bought two of these to replace failing LaCie burners which were several years old. So far they have burned everything without any glitches or hiccups. They have been reliable, and I burn CDs and DVDs constantly. Great units. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!I ordered a laptop without a CD writer/reader because it is seldom used and another item to get broken on the laptop. I do take it along sometimes if I think I'll need it but most of the time I leave it at home and use it when needed.My personal thoughts on the matter is CD writer/readers were very important for backups and such but with USB drive with much more storage space, the CD writer/reader is seldom needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MisleadingWhen I bought this the employs who helped me buy this product did not know that this product does not support Memorex discs. This information is not located on the box either. I feel mislead by this product that I bought. It is a nice product I like that is it is a nice external disc drive to use, and it makes you feel like you have the most powerful machine in the world hearing it burn the disc. This is just my personal preference. Just remember that they do not support Memorex, and it does not warn you on the box. I doubt any store employee knows of this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ColdI bought this April of last year and I must admit that I love the interior, it keeps my vegetables fresher than any refrigerator I have ever owned in the past. I like that it has an alarm that let's you know that the door is still opened. Cannot not say too many good things about the exterior though, scratches easily and has marks on it already (discoloration) that will not come off. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features for the priceThis drive has a great package of features for the price. I use it for viewing instructional DVDs and data storage. Purchased it because my new laptop didn't have a DVD drive (becoming very common).The only issue had was getting the driver loaded. Windows 8.1 is very deficient when it comes to drivers and add ons. While the previous versions of Windows were pretty much plug and play for adding accessories, 8.1 expects you to buy all addins, drivers, etc.If your LG drive doesn't function right away, try it on another computer, chances are it's a Windows issue not the drive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE24NU40 dead in a few weeksWorked okay for about a month, then started developing recognition issues. After bootup drive appears in the network, once any disc is inserted it disappears. Not worth any more time to invest in software updates, reboots or research. nothing helps. Expensive paperweight. Buyer beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never againI give up, I don't recommend this product . After wasting time trying to get it to work properly , it will become a paperweight . I tried to get it to work on Windows 10 to no avail and on Windows 8 . It will recognize the drive until you put a dvd in then disappear . I should have purchased an internal drive in the first place . in fact , that is what I am going to do [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built/FastI've only had this DVD Writer for less than a month, but so far it has impressed me with its' build quailty as well as the speed that it can burn CDs. For example it has been averaging 2-4 minutes to burn 10-12 track CDs of 55 - 70 minutes in length !! Pretty good in my opinion. And it is very quiet which would indicate an efficient drive and motor system. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plus & Play on my iMac and Mac ProI was concerned based on some reviews. However, I plugged it in and it plays DVD's and burns DVDs/CDs from my Macs. My Macs talk to it and it obeys commands..like open tray when I want to burn a DVD. I close the tray and my Macs tell me a disk is ready to burn. It talks backFantastic product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, high-quality deviceProduct works very well. I bought it primarily for listening to CDs and ripping CDs, but I have tested it for DVDs and it works fine there also. The horizontal sturdy tray feature is the best part and the reason I got it. My computer actually has an optical drive but it is vertical, flimsy and extremely difficult to use. So the external drive makes my life easier. One suggestion though for designers: move the button to the side or top instead of its position below the tray. It is very difficult to hit the button when the tray is open. Poor ergonomics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No support for this product, ie: Software DownloadI was very impressed initially with this external drive but the third time I came to use it in a VERY important project with my laptop that doesn't have a DVD drive (the reason I purchased it in the first place.) It did NOTHING when set up and plugged in....I have spent and ENTIRE DAY trying to find software to either reinstall on my laptop or drive but IT EXISTS NOW WHERE and LG sight after regerstering my product mentions the software CD in the manuel but there isn't any further information or help. BEYOND FRUSTRATED....and has ruined my timeline for completion of this extremely important project...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEHJust got this from Dell. Silent? More noise than a dishwasher. Tried installing the software that came with it. Every install giving me error messages. This corrupted, that corrupted, file not found. EEch! Then I tried to skip one install, (unchecked) It still installed. Finally used System Restore to get rid of all this junk and found some free software online. Laptop refuses to acknowledge drive. Have to run discs manually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought this in the first place.Fast and quiet, and it worked perfect the first time I used it to make DVDs from old recorded home VHS tapes. I had been struggling for two months trying to get the right program to work. It turned out the cheap external optical drive I bought previously was outdated and useless. Admittedly the first capture program I purchased was cheap and useless also. I was able to send that back. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
