LG GP65NB60 External DVD Drive - Black is rated3.83 out of5 by30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for Audio CDsAs title states, this portable drive works well for burning/playing audio CDs. I have no yet tried to burn DVDs. As portable drives go, it is delicate and should be handled as such, but it works well. It is attractive, however, I deducted one star because I think a matt finish would have been more appropriate for something that is handled a lot. Finger prints show all over the place, and I imagine so will scratches that might happen. Mechanically, so far, I rate this A+. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this DVD writer and it's the best!!!!This DVD writer is great!!!!! The only thing that I have a problem is, how to slow the writer so I can put movies on one DVD!! I use this item at the local library, but can not get any kind of help!!!! Because the staff think that I'm downloading movies that have copyright's!!! But the two websites that I use has movies that have no copyright or they where not renewed! Please get this great writer! And see how it works for you!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as well as other LG products I have ownedA little noisy on startup, but runs just fine on tasks I have tried: writing to and reading cd, reading dvd. I have not tried writing to a dvd yet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The size of a CD caseThis unit fulfills my expectations completely. Slim, having dimensions of a CD case, requires quite a small footprint. The installation could not have been simpler. Remove it from the shipping carton, plug in the USB cable, insert the installation disk and within minutes I was playing a DVD. The software provides viewing/writing capability and also contains file backup to preserve computer file. I am thrilled with this LG DVD/CD player/writer which I use with Windows 10 on my desktop computer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slow, slow, slowI bought this yesterday and am finding it works very slowly to read a CD with jpeg photos. When I eject the disk, it continues to read the CD for 5 or 10+ minutes before ejecting. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CD/DVD GP65NB60 DriveI bought this for my new computer that had no drive because I thought it wasn't needed, but decided to install some old CD/DVD information, hence, bought it. The instructions were a little vague initially, but after a couple of attempts, I got Win10 to recognize the drive and sound activiated. I am pleased with it now. No other issues after 30 days of use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portable DVD DriveThis drive has an easy setup. Just plug it and windows usually does the rest in a matter of a couple of minutes. Burns discs rather quickly, so far I have not gotten any disc errors using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get it too work.Minimal directions and no hints/suggestions if it doesn't work. Only big disclosures saying it doesn't work on all TVs. Well, I have a brand new smart TV. Why it wouldn't work is beyond me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charmWorks just as needed. Just plugged it in and that was it. Got it for my custom build (W10) and barely notice it sitting on top. Only 'eh' problem is that its a popout tray which has fragility issues over time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insert a blank cd to beginThis worked fine until it did not. Now when I try to burn a cd, it will usually say insert a blank cd. Sometimes the cd will be recognized after opening and closing many times. It usually just spins for a couple minutes and then stops. If the cd ever gets recognized it will spin much faster. I will probably buy another device. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for moneyI bought this a week ago and had already burnt some 10 DVDs with it. It is indeed noise-less and very light-weight and that's where my problem is too.. The product is very prone to damage as the plastic feels flimsy and easily bendable. That is the only con. I love that it requires only one USB port and not two like some other brands. Works well on my LG 3D TV too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Review for GP65NB60I have been somewhat suspicious of the lightweight slim portable DVD burner/player drives that I borrowed to satisfy a short term need, but after reading the reviews of the LG 65NB60 I decided to bite the bullet and buy one for myself. This thing is solid, rugged, quiet and works like a charm. It seems better built than the other units I borrowed, and the speed and performance is much better than I expected. I am MCSE and A+ certified and have been in the business since b4 the first CD read/write drives came installed from the factory. I am very impressed with all aspects of this little drive and will have no problem recommending it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get it to play DVDI bought this product with the idea that I could play a DVD. Inserted a disc after installing correctly, and only the audio would play. Tried another DVD and still could not get it it to play. It's not as simple as plugging in and "deciding what to do with the disc." Have some feelers out to some friends to figure out why I cannot get it to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool!In the world of ever shrinking laptops, they took my DVD drive/burner away!!!! It makes it important to have a nice USB one to use when you need it. This little LG definitely fits the bill. My IT organization uses them, and we just buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed.I bought this a little under 2 months ago, and it worked great for about 2 weeks. I bought it for my acer chromebook so that I could view jpeg files and do my homework for school. I was able to use it for about 2 weeks and then it stopped working. The disk just spins and will no longer read. I starting thinking there was a problem with my chromebook, which I bought at the same time, so I had a friend use it on her Macbook (She has used mine previously, and it worked fine). The drive didn't work on hers either. I am just so annoyed because I made sure that I bought a chromebook and an external drive that were compatible for school, and now I'm back to using the school's outdated computers that are usually broken. The price was reasonable, but not worth 2 weeks of use. I do not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad . . . EXCEPTSo far I've had a couple of issues--one particularly important for me: 1) the write speed seems slower than indicated by X__; 2) if burning a file that requires more than one blank disc to complete . . . it simply re-burns the first part over and over again, asking for an additional disc to be inserted ad infinitum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just as expected.I bought this a couple months ago and it has been working flawlessly, 'cept for a small tiny detail. Yesterday it sent me a message I didn't take too much notice about something concerning to the Power2go software and when I tried to burn a new DVD it changed the burning option from the name of the Optical Drive to Image Recorder DVD 5 or 9 and the PC froze. I had to reset it and change the burning method. I have no complains up to this day except for that one and I have to say it's a really great OD, reliable and fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described.I was having similar issues with connection problems as others have mentioned, but I changed to a better quality usb cable and it works perfect. So if it connects and then ejects continuously try a different cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from slim and fastfor an external Disk Drive it is slim fast and super easy to use, can't beat the price either. It's not the best in the market but it is one of the best in my opinion due to its versatility.
