          Comments about LG External USB 2.0 Double-Layer DVD And CD Recorder Drive:

          This driver is very noisy while playing/burning CD or DVD. With Blu Ray the sound is correct. It's provide with Power DVD 9. This program is not compatible with Windows 8.1. If you buy this product, your will have to buy PowerDVD 14 Ultra. Also, the firmware of this driver need update to work correctly on Windows 8.1. Best thing to do, buy a newer model of LG driver!

              I got this baby as a Christmas present to myself. I wanted to watch blu rays on my computer but did not have a player. This player is a great value. It was easy to install and set up with the provided software. Plays most of my blu rays, but would not play The Hobbit. Not sure why. Also plays regular dvds well. I used it to burn a few cds and it did a great job. All in all, a great product for a modest price.

                  I bought this for the lightsribe feature and the Blue Ray player was a bonus. I have had zero issues with the install or functions of this drive. This is the 5th LG drive I have purchased and have never had an issue with any of them.

                              Bought this to upload OS for miniPC. Found it to be quiet, easy to use and solid performer. LG burning tools software included is a pleasant surprise; made burning CDs simple. I haven't used the lightscribe feature yet but intend to. Overall great value.

                                  I had issues with installing, but that was because I was connecting to the PC thru a powered 7-USB hub. Once I plugged directly to the laptop, everything was fine. It's unfortunate two USB connections may be necessary. I haven't tested this unit much so far, but from what I've seen the software is very user friendly. The unit is light, sleek, with minimal footprint. Overall a good product.

                                          I am glad to have found this CD drive. It has a direct drive, no belt like the internal drives. Just when you need the CD burner to burn your favorite music the belt breaks. Not with this one because it has no belt. The ease of installing and operating this device is great. Just plug and play. Lightscribe works and use the flip side to burn with correct CD format. Like my Portable Super Multi-Drive GP08.

                                              I am not a computer geek. I just want my equipment to work and I don't want to have to become a techie to use it. This device plugs in easily, I can burn cd's, read them and it's that easy! Before I owned it, I did not have any idea how often I would use it. A very good investment!
