Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and speed for the price Remarkable product, does what it should do; very good [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 30, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 4k Blu Ray I discover that although it can read a bd-xl tl, it can not read 4k blu ray. Maybe a firmware upgrade? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works as Advertised! After purchasing the LG BH10LS30 in 2010, I was thoroughly disappointed with the product. For example, if it felt like it perhaps it would read Blu Rays never wrote them, but at least it worked for DVDs a greater percentage of the time. When it came time to purchase I looked at the competition for comparison products, some of them offered bundled software, unlike this product; however, the reviews scored better for this.Since I already have software that will read Blu Rays, as well as DVDs and separate software that will write the aforementioned, and provided I've had an experience with an LG Television that died on me during repair and LG sent a technician to my house and replaced all of the parts within three days of the call (I think it was supposed to be a week), I purchased this product.So far it works as advertised, although I have only tested watching Blu Rays on well known software (which pleases me since my first LG Blu Ray Burner was dead out of the box). I am attempting to clone a Blu Ray to my HDD for preservation, on my first attempt it was "corrupted" but that is more than likely software related, or copyright protection and not related to this product. Tested a clone of the second product, removed a theory that I had that was on the disc and I have a perfect copy on my HDD -- so it was software, and disc related.Overall, I am pleased that it works as advertised, but, it should be noted that you should already have software to watch the media through this product as this is an OEM product and will be akin to a coffee coaster (unless you download some free products that do a poor job at playing media as intended). Also keep in mind that Windows 10 does not support media player watching. I've rater this product 4 out of 5 stars as LG's competition offers bundled software at competitive or cheaper rates, and it would have persuaded me to look elsewhere if I had not already owned the software necessary for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Drive I purchased this drive to replace my BD10LS30 drive which stopped working. while burning a dual layer DVD. Spent no more than 5 minutes installing it. Works just as good as if not better than the old one which now only works in an external case and not as an internal drive [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] March 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works beautifully in linux! I have been a linux user since 2000, and this blue-ray burner is one of the best pieces of hardware I've gotten in almost all that time.The speed my system achieves when burning is amazing! I usually average ~45MB/second, so filling a 25GB BD takes less than 15 minutes.LG hit the ball out of the park with this burner. I don't know what the trouble is with those saying anything other than great stuff about this burner (other than blame M$!), but for me this burner is fantastic and works out of the box on linux systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great! I've only burned 1 BD and several DVD's but it burns them fast and they are readable. February 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well for the price. Using this drive in a MacPro (2010) on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2. I've only burned a handful of Blu-Rays but they work OK. Burned a ton of DVD's and they are fine as well (and 2 CD's). Ripped a ton of Blu-rays and this drive is fast for that.Would recommend, it's a good drive for OSX. February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Working fine so far Has worked fine since 11-08-2014. Got it for a great price January 14, 2015
