Good DVD Performance - UH12NS30

 

I needed to replace my DVD-burner and bought this unit on a whim... thinking that the POTENTIAL Blu-Ray capabilities would be a bonus. I now better understand the complexities of using Blu-Rays --- especially on older PCs such as mine. I was...

Replaces my PC's old wornout DVD-burner and works well for reading and writing. The installation was a simple connect-and-go

As noted in several other reviews, it can be difficult to read Blu-Ray discs. I spent about 30 minutes searching for an easy (and FREE) solution for my old XP-system. I finally gave up and will not attempt to use Blu-Rays

Good Drive for Money

 

Not much to say, drive works very well and is not loud or anything. I really like the LG drives as they seem to just have an overall nice feel when using them.

Good Price ; Works well ; Not to Noise

None

Well, it works, kind of.

 

It 'can' read Blu-Ray DVDs

Every Blu-Ray worth watching has some crazy encryption, so you probably won't find any that you can just slap in your drive and watch. It isn't the hardware's fault, so i can't give it a bad rating. The drive itself works fine and has been for the past...

Died after 4 Months

 

Even though this Drive died after a few months I was very impressed with LG's support, I opened up a case online, they e-mailed me a UPS Label and in about a week I got a replacement.

Easy to install ; Fast ; Read every disc I put in it ; Great Support from LG

Died after a few months of moderate use, doesn't seem to read at consistent speeds

ove this product

 

went into my tower without a hitch. easy as pie to install.works flawlessly

did need extra jumper and power cord to install secondary drive., but I have an HP pavillion Elite tower, so I suppose that couts as an older box

Disappointed

 

None

No issues with this drive for six months and then it quit reading DVDs. Not even heavy usage and the laser quit working. LG drives come highly rated and then I wind up with this dud

Very nice drive

 

Lucent and Goldstar merged back in the day and made a great company. But if you google it you won't even be able to find that. LG's own explanation of there name is now some hippie trash trying to be people/world friendly................ it is the only...

LG is the only brand that does Dual layer DVD and tripple and Quad layer BLU-ray ; And they make some very functional drives that last a very good long time. I have a Dual Layer DVD drive still in use from 2006 no firmware updates needed as of yet

There not free :P

LG UH12NS30

 

It has the potential to play blu-ray discs

While this isn't specific to the drive, it should be noted that you WILL NOT be able to play blu-ray movies right after installing this drive, unlike with a DVD drive. To do so, you will require software to circumvent the blu-ray encryption. Your own...
