    LG - A Workhorse of a Burner/Player

    This LG burner/player is a workhorse and a great addition to my wife's desktop. With the decline of internal burners, my wife wanted an external solution to help her digitize our CD collection, capture pictures from old DVDs and burn new picture DVDs. Setup was very easy and only requires two USB ports for the cable provided. Once the software provided was loaded using the player, ripping and burning was a breeze. If you are searching for a great external burner/player at a great price, then I certainly recommend this LG and it is currently on sale for $79.99.

    Need to flash in order to get full functionality

    I regularly format shift my content from physical Blurays that I purchase to DRM-Free digital to my own personal Plex server. I have an old chonky, but reliable 4K Bluray drive in a Sata enclosure that I keep in a drawer. It does a perfectly fine job, it's just a pain to find room on my desk and connect. Enter this slim little BluRay drive; I can keep it hooked up and it doesn't take up much room. I used clear 3M VHB to adhere it to the underside of my glass monitor stand, so it takes up no room at all! When you first get it, you'll have to upgrade the firmware, as out-of-the-box, all functions are not supported (including 4k Bluray reading). Once that's done, you'll need to use the two-plugged USB-to-MicroUSB, connected with both plugs, as the power draw exceeds USB 2.0.. Disappointing that in 2023, devices are still sold with MicroUSB, but I digress. Most disks read just fine with the software I use, and it's quiet and adequately fast (about 1 hour to extract a full BluRay movie, DVDs take like 15 minutes). All in all, it meets my needs and doesn't take up a lot of space doing it... now to tackle this pile of disks.

    Good little player

    Good little player, does well with all formats. I couldn’t get the software that came with it to actually play anything. It would start up and then freeze. But after several updates and patches I finally got it. It will work using a single usb c lightening port but you’ll need an adapter. Otherwise it takes two regular usb slots to power it.
