Experience: 5 Months
I have this DVD writter since 5 months and it's still running perfectly, it's quiet and fast enought.

I would purchase it again and I recommend it.

none to date
I bought this for a new PC and I like it. This was not my first LG DVD writter and I'm also pleased of the others I had...

I just 'might' have an issue with audio CDs that are not playing well but I really suspect the brand of the CDs... (Memorex)

- lightscribe
- reads and writes practically any disc format (not BD or HDDVD of course)
- adds significant electrical noise to the analog audio channel
- bit slow to get started on disc insertion
I bought this model because of my previous experience with LG optical drives. It does handle any type of disc I throw at it. There were a couple of -R's from a friend which didn't work, but they were unviewable on any computer or DVD player, so I'm putting that down to bad disc/burn rather than a problem with this drive.

The low rating is because of the electrical noise on the analog channel. It's very annoying, particularly when you are watching a DVD with a headset on. Every seek, pause, spin up or down adds a medium pitch whine which is particularly loud during quit scenes. Now, I'm not 100% sure the drive is to blame, but I have never heard this before with any other DVD drive, so that's a strong indicator that it is indeed cuased by this drive. I should note that the electrical noise does not get added to digital outputs, so audio on my speakers is great.

Fast Quiet Reliable name
it's ide(well it can't be perfect)

Fast, Quiet, Price, and Durability

Brought this drive to replace other LG Drive I had, still worked but friend needed Drive so I gave him mine. This drive is solid. Have never had a bad experience with Dvd Writers, This time is no different. And for the price you can not go wrong.

Light scribe is nice, very fast burn times

I decided to update my older LG DVD writer with this DL burner, works very will and a lot faster even in DL mode

- lightscribe
- cheap
- fast
- sound level
Bought this a month ago, and i have to say that it works pretty well. I've burned about 29 discs since i got it and have to say that for the price this thing is awesome. It even came with lightscribe (which i've yet to try). The only thing I dislike about this burner is the sound. Sometimes it's louder then my games, but maybe I just got a faulty one.

Experience: 6 Days
 Verified Owner
Really reliable
none so far
Got this because puts it on their 10 most reliable list, and it does its job real well, highly recommended although it is IDE.

Experience: 7 Days
 Verified Owner
It does what its meant to do perfectly. Also has lightscribe which is a plus. Bought it to match my black case. Would buy again.

Experience: 1 Weeks

- 20X6X16X
- LightScribe
- 2MB cache
Has bought this drive for replacing a old one which wasn't burning properly.
Replacement was easy, and is working fine, the only thing I found a bit low is the cache of the drive, 2MB is a bit low when burning at really high speed.

But still, recommended.
