This unit does everything its info sheet advertised and does it well. It has far more features than other units I viewed in its price range. I would highly recommend you consider it before buying. Walmart shipment exceeded my expectations and its progress was traceable daily.
Just plug it in and you are good to go. It comes with additional software, but you do not need to install it.
Purchased two for a client...very compact and thin...thus far, working fine. : )
I use it mostly to burn backups from computers I am going to reformat and want to save the docs, etc to a DVD disc,
My computer is windows 8.1. Still comparable and work with usb 2.0 and 3.0. It works very good. But little slow.
The body material is not as good as I expected but overally it's a good device specially the attached software is really helpful
The website photo is a picture of the LG GP 40, and not the LG GP50. Consequently, i was surprised today not to have received the LG burner as shown in the picture.
However, the ship to store feature was spectacularly fast.
Overall it does a very good job for the price. Feels a little flimsy and the cord is short, but that seems the standard for cords these days. Good buy.
This LG DVD Writer wasn't bought with the intent on making backups. I bought it for installing operating systems on machines I work with frequently. It is a life saver! I have used it as a write since and have zero issues. It's solid and portable as well as working with older and newer systems. Overall, this portable handy helper makes life a lot easier!
very easy to use
as simple as connecting to the usb port
I bought this unit to work with my little ASUS 2-in-1 that didn't come with a DVD burner. It works great with it, very quick to search a disc and get the results. Using only one cable makes it easy to use with a laptop/tablet that only has one USB connection. As a bonus, it reads all of the old cds/dvds that could not be read on the original drive that created them.
I bought this item for my daughters laptop and it works get.
It quickly and efficiently does the job! I love this addition to my laptop. I would highly recommend this for anyone with a laptop that does not have an optical drive.
This works perfect for when I do repairs on laptops and PCs that the drive doesn't work. It allows me to do updates and software repair till I get the replacement drives. It simply works.
I wanted an external DVD drive for my ultrabook, this was one of the cheapest options with good reviews, so I bought it. It is exactly what you would expect from a DVD drive. It is thin, light, works with both USB2.0 and USB3.0 with Windows 8. At first I though I need drivers for it, because it wouldn't work, but then I realized I was being stupid - I didn't push the USB cord all the way into the port. It sits tight there. After I connected it properly it started working immediately. To some people who complain about the speed - come on, it is a DVD drive after all. Work as fast as any DVD.
Not recognized by Vista. Some problems connecting to win7 computer but able to overcome.
It works very well !!!!!
Does exactly what this type of device is suppose to.
No more! I use it on a Mac and I paid the same price
as a PC user but it's very obvious LG doesn't support
any of the extra features available to PC users.
The buyer doesn't know this till you get it home. Go to LG support for this device for evidence. Mac is not mentioned once.
I can not get mpg4 files to auto play. I can put the same DVD in a desktop and it plays. I've tried everything I know but no success. I can read files on it and manually play some files but no auto play.
This drive worked great on the PC with Windows 7. The TV connectivity is a lie. Device doesn't connect to TV. YES. I plugs in via USB but there are no drivers to operate the device with my LG 60" LED TV. Bought based on the merit that is was TV Connectivity featured.
