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.
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!
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.
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.
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...

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.
