- Easy install
- Quite
- Software
Nice little unit put it in my new computer, upgraded from an old IDE burner. Runs nice and quite when burning DVDs. Haven’t had a chance to test it with Bluray or HD-DVD yet. The only notable problem is the horrid software that it comes with, upgrade and or finds something else to use with it.

Great Blu-Ray playback, amazing quality, simple setup, bundle includes Power DVD software suite that automatically updates to the very latest firmware version, and the SATA connectors are much less cumbersome than IDE connectors.

Experience: 1 Weeks

-good BD drive with a decent price tag
-bundled software is not satisfactory to say the least
Bought this and installed it in an HTPC. Install was easy, drive is relatively quiet and of pretty good quality. Only problem is the bundled software which you will most likely have to upgrade in order to use the drive at it's full potential.

Firmware updater blows
Great Blu-Ray drive for the price, bought it on sale and it hasn't let me down in the past 4 months of decently heavy use. Problem with the software is that you don't get any. Sure you get the OEM version of PowerDVD that CAN play bluray, but no x264 support, not that VLC would ever come in second.

Experience: 2 Days

works out of the box
unlike the asus drive in my other pc, the included software updates on its own then works. The drive is also a decent price.

Silent, easy installation
No blu-ray
Installation was a breeze, everything worked from the very beginning just fine. Everything but Blu-Ray playback. So far I wasn't able to play many blu-ray disks - actually only one. The included PowerDVD version is just crap. I tried the trials of PowerDVD, WinDVD, VLC Player, ... - without success. 3 stars only because I think it's a software issue, but expected LG to provide a working solution.

Price compared to a standalone player
included software isn't good
Bought so I can play Blu-Ray movies and does a good job of doing that. I use Power DVD 8 Ultra.........

Runs both Blu-ray and HD DVD
Mine doesnt play HDDVD
It's cheap and does the job. Mine is unable to play HDDVD (probobly a firmware issue) but I only purchase BD anyways.

I am using PowerDVD Ultra and it works flawlessly.

Experience: 6 Days

plays both blu-ray and HD-dvd

lousy software
I price matched it to 135 so its not bad but I have to pay for WinDVD 9 plus Blu-Ray because the software that comes with it sucks. Windvd works really well providing smooth upscaling on my 30" LCD.

Experience: 5 Months

works great. easy to install and use
the powerdvd software that comes with it sucks. it only plays in 2 channel stereo. i had to purchase the new ulta to get full DTS surroundsound.
great product. no issues with it. its very silent the only thing is the flashing blue light gets inoying in the dark. and the powerdvd software that comes with it sucks had to buy the new ultra to get the full sound quality..

Comment: While lacking the BD writing capabilities found on the GGW-H20L, the GGC-H20L delivers the same performance and features at a more affordable price.
