I bought this from another online retailer back on 7/9/2011 (for $12 less I might add). In short, it exceeded every expectation I had for it. It is the fastest reader I have (and I own 6, including Plextor, LiteOn, etc). It will read discs perfectly that other readers just give error after error trying to read. As a burner, it is certainly at the top of the speed list as well. Just one caveat: This is a great DVD & Blu-Ray READER but will ONLY BURN DVD's (not Blu-Ray's)!

This drive has AACS, an added level of copy protection that makes it inconvenient, unusable in some configurations where it can't get a digital handshake.

The copy software makers have already broken this encryption, so it doesn't stop them from making illegal copies, but it might stop you from being able to play DVD's.

Likely the people who say it doesn't play DVD's are trying to play through VGA or some other analog format or have an older video card that has compatibility issues.

I was under the impression this bulk drive would not include the player s/w but it did! It's definintely faster than my other 1 year dvd drive when I did the windows 7 install twice using the new and old drives.

I has a groove design to the front panel, slightly glossy finish. Different from the regular ones with matt finish and flat surface.

If you're considering this drive to play Blurays on your PC or HTPC, STOP. I picked this drive because it came bundled with bluray player software. However, the included software, PowerDVD 9 is JUNK. It will not play any bluray produced after 2010, even with updates, unless you pay an extra $80 to upgrade to Power DVD 12.

Read reviews on the Power DVD software. This is a continual cycle that the software maker profits from. Every year they come out with a new version and require you to 'upgrade' to keep playing the latest blurays.

Save yourself some time and money and just pay the extra $$ for a stand alone bluray player now. It's the only option until microsoft sorts out the legal issues of playing blurays in media center.

If you are planning on using this drive to "rip" BDs then be prepared to have to reflash the firmware with a custom BIN to turn off the RipLock on the drive. Before I was getting 2.4x rips and now I get 8x+. So far it has been reliable at reading all of my BD discs I have thrown at it. Even a couple that gives my Asus drive fits.

This bulk drive came with the power cables and software mentioned in previous reviews. It's an easy switch with an existing drive, and Vista and Windows 7 64-bit have native drivers for it, and works great with software like AnyDVD HD. Very much recommended if you want to read but not write Blu-ray discs.

This LG BRDP loads BR discs much much faster than any stand alone player I've encountered. It works great with any software player that I've thrown at it. I have no regrets buying the LG brand and feel that I have a great disc reader for the money I paid for it. Since it is my HTPC BD player, I have not tried writing with this device.

My young ones aren't the "most gentle" users of this player (opening tray, inserting discs misaligned and closing tray) and it's still going strong without any signs of wear. It gets used every day playing Elmo, Barbie, and Signing Times discs (don't tell the guys on my softball team that I actually enjoy the Barbie movies).

I've had several years of experience with LG appliances and feel the same quality with this disc player. I recommend this or any LG BRDP.

I just received this and it works fine. Nice, quiet.

Make sure you read all the specs. If you're hoping for 12x reads on BD-ROM (commercial Blu-ray discs) like many of the other BD readers, you will be disappointed to discover that it only does 8x-10x (8x on dual layer) on those.

I haven't tried it as a DVD-writer since I will not be using it for that purpose.

It will make a very good backup for my older 12x (real) Samsung SH-B123L which, while faster, can sometimes struggle on scratched discs. I have one BD that my Samsung consistently fails on about 20% in. This LG reads the entire disc without a hiccup. The LG is a definite keeper!
