The march of Progress.

I have many discs, accumulated over many years. My latest computer has no disc drive. I could get one put in, or I could buy this product or another like it. I've found LG products to be good value, so I bought this. It does what it is supposed to without fuss. Installation? Just plug it in. No worries whatever.

Portable Blu-Ray Writer & DVD Writer

Originally wanted an internal player/writer but I am glad I purchased this one instead. Compact and does everything.

Scratch Happy

I'm pretty happy so far (1 month in) - this was a highly rated unit and it hasn't disappointed. The first DVD played using this drive was a an old favourite of my wife's, that she had been unable to watch due to damage (scratches). No issues, ran like a charm. The set-up was easy, price paid very competitive (especially considering the price of comparative units elsewhere), it's fairly quiet, and is portable (small and light). We're yet to give it a thrashing, but that's what wet days over summer are for...
