Pros
Affordable
Comes with a copy of powerDVD to play blu-ray
Cons
Noisy (Just like all cd drives so it doesn't count really)
Summary
Paired this up with my 27in monitor and the movies are just unbelievable! I noticed more details now, or maybe it's just that I've been watching my blu-ray movies from a distance.

Pros
Fast and Reliable
Cons
None
Summary
I bought this for my HTPC. This is my first Bluray player so I wanted something top of the line. After considering other brands and reading many review this seemed like the right choice. No complaints so far, burns error free discs and plays Bluray well. Makes typical optical drive noises when reading discs. Otherwise its fast and reliable.

Pros
Whats to say, its a disc drive. Nice finish, and I like the blue LED
Cons
None that I can see.
Summary
I bought this for my multimedia PC, as I wanted to be able to play Blu Ray movies on it as well. I don't own a seperate Blu ray player so I thought why not? Seems to function as it should i'm quite pleased with the end result. Plays blu rays just fine. Nice to finally see a movie in HD on my 1080P television!

Pros
Relatively quiet, seems to handle all the media I throw at it, good price to performance value.
Cons
Rip locked like the majority of other drives out there, need to take additional steps to reach its potential.
Summary
Bought this drive since I've pretty much been using LG drives for years and they've always proven to be reliable and decent performers. In this particular case, I bought this drive primarily to back up my personal BD movies. However, after running various tests and checking stats, found that the read speed of this drive is well below the specs when it comes to movies. Haven't tried it on data discs, so can't comment on that. I was getting peak read speeds in the area of 5x (23 MBps), and averaging 3.5x (15 MBps) with BD. After taking some steps (google 'mcse' along with this model number for more info), got the drive to perform at 5.6x (25MBps) average, with a peak of 9.4x (42 MBps), which is pretty much in line with what this drive should have been doing out of the box. Much happier now.

Pros
Does what it does, looks pretty
Cons
none
Summary
This is a great drive and works very well. I got it when it was on sale and it works nicely. Unlike other Blueray drives, this one actually reads all types of Blueray discs without problem.

Pros
Reasonably quiet
Fast
Cons
Trouble reading RAM disks
Summary
I was completely happy with the unit until I tried reading RAM disks. This resulted in system hangs, forced to restart (sometimes returning to the black screen, "safe mode" restart option). On occasion only option was to switch system off at the power supply!! Running Win 7 64-bit on i7 system. Tried same RAM disks in older XP Pro system which also has older LG GSA4040 drive....disks were read perfectly. Phoned LG Canada to enquire whether there was a firmware update  available for newer unit to resolve issue(no), and was told that they do not support this USA model. Phoned LG USA and they stated unit was likely faulty so recommended I RMA the unit. Still awaiting replacement from NCIX, will update  posting when received...

Pros
- Blu-ray!
- Good price (on sale 93 CAD)
Cons
- Had issues with blu-ray playback using the bundled software
Summary
Great product. These seem to be gaining in popularity. Decent price on sale (~90 CAD).

Had problems with the blu-ray playback using the bundled software. The movie would play fine for a minute or two and then I get a BSOD (common nvidia issue apparently; using a gtx 460). Too much advice online. What I did to solve the issue is to go into the nvidia control panel - 3d settings, and turn the settings down to a minimum. Seemed to work for me.

Pros
Quiet, fairly quick and quiet for Blu-Ray
Cons
DVD-Writing isn't as fast, but with really fast ones selling for under $30 these days, it makes sense to have a second drive for DVD writing (and the ability to copy doesn't hurt), and as you probab;y want to extend the lifespan of your BD-ROM drive, being able to use it almost EXCLUSIVELY for Blu-Ray and minimizing the wear on the drive is almost a no-brainer.
Summary
There's not much to say other than this drive is great. I mean, who DOESN'T want Blu-Ray? Picked it up about 2 months ago for $90 on sale (it's only $10 more now) and for Blu-Ray drives to hit sub-$100 prices so quickly is amazing. Everyone should get one.

Now if only BD media would come down in price, it'd be an even better purchase to go with one of those... imagine the archiving potential of these discs. I seem to remember though back when DVD-RW drives were exotic and it took forever to get to what was largely considered the
'sweet spot" of sub-$200. Clearly people want more bang for thir buck though this time around, and the manufacturers are obviously keenly aware because these drives have dropped in price at pretty significant speeds.

It's hard to go wrong with one of these drives though, especially for the price.

Pros
Seems quiet enough and well built. Good price.
Cons
Ripping DVDs is somewhat slower than my other DVD-Writer LG drive.
Summary
It is great to have a Blu-Ray BD-ROM unit on the computer for doing some video type work. This was a great purchase and at a time when finally, BD-ROMs are now pretty inexpensive.

Pros
blu ray for $100
Cons
none
Summary
For $100, you can't really complain much, not that there is anything to complain about anyway.
The drive does get somewhat loud, but what drive doesnt.
