Product Reviews
LG BH16NS40 Super Multi Blue - BD-RE drive - Serial ATA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for ripping Have used this to backup my bought Blu-ray disc and CDs. With MakeMKV I can rip my Blu-ray discs in about 20 minutes and with a 33 GB output file. The drive is very quiet in operation and seems to work well. I've not actually burned any discs with it yet, but will start backing up my photos at some point, and it's good to know that the M discs should last longer than standard Blu-rays.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustratingly inferior software bundle I bought LG BH16NS Blu ray and DVD burner some months ago. Now that I need to make a Video DVD, I realise that the software provided for burneing (Power producer 5.5.) does not accept mpeg4 format. And it keeps prompting me to buz the 6.0 version. Mpeg4 is a basic format. I bought the burner so I could make video DVDs of my works when required. It is quite frustrating. Would anyone know how to get around this nonsense? LG must provide appropriate softwares with the burner ar very clearly speel out that one has to buy softwares separately. I feel cheated. Will appreciate if LG can provide me the neccesary software to operate it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not write to Windows 8.1/10 64bit I bought this BR for writing DVDs and BRs as well.It's so frustrating that after upgrading to windows 8.1 (from 7) and now 10 I have an expensive reader, cause it can not write under these OSes.Unit needs an urgent firmware update

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am so happy .. I went and bought another one I purchased one of these drives 8 months back for my Windows desktop and since then I have burned over 125 plus BluRay discs for my photography business. Its perfect every single time and no coasters.So when time came to add an external BluRay burner to my iMac I went and bought another one of the LG BluRay burner and paired it with Vantec NexStar DX External USB 3.0 Enclosure. iMac recognized this drive with no issue, works perfectly with PlexDisc 6x Blu-ray every single time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cant download program from LG I downloaded the update for this product and after I did when I opened the program and tried to update it would do nothing. So I uninstalled and reinstalled and it did the same thing. So I guess if there are any updates for this product than I will not be able to download it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered! I installed this in my DELL XPS8700 that had a spare drive bay. Installation of the drive was easy, although I did have a problem with the door on the computer. It wouldn't open to allow access to the drive tray. After a slight adjustment of the drive in the bay, everything works as it should. This drive is FAST! Quiet too! Drivers installed after I booted up and installed the included software. I burned a BluRay disc shortly after I installed the drive and it took it less than 45 minutes to write 22Gb of data.I'd highly recommend this drive to anyone looking to either upgrade or replace an older drive.
