I bought this product from Amazon (not the seller currently stated) and had a quick delivery, really well packaged and for a fantastic price considering it's a drive that will do just about anything you need it for.

The drive was really easy to install, with loads of software included.
When spinning at 40x speed it's not event that loud either.

I've burned images using the lightscibe software which is good quality, and have had no problems what-so-ever burning cd's, dvd's, watching films e.t.c.

Buy this drive now you won't be dissapointed.

This is a fantastic product, especially if you don't want to splash out on a dedicated BD player. The added bonus it plays HD-DVDs that are going cheap at the moment. Easy to fit, I have mine in a USB2 Sata enclosure and it's pretty quiet. It spins up reasonably quickly and 16x DVD writing isn't that bad when you consider most DVD discs are only quoted as 16x compatible. The software that comes with it is a little unstable, best to download the latest updates from Cyberlink, as this improves stability and gives you 6ch audio compatibility.

Does what it says on the box. Plays BlueRay discs without a problem and includes the software to do so (PowerDVD). Not tried HD-DVDs but everything else works fine, and it's quiet.

I recently purchased from Amazon an LG GGC-H20L bluray/hd-dvd/dvd writer, having read favourable reviews on this product.

I have to say how glad i made this purchase, at significantly less than retail price i might add. The reviews had been spot on, having seen a recent review since, comparing it to similar products, it came out top with quick seek times for dvd and bluray, and also the added support for hd-dvd discs as well.

I'm not sure but i think lg do a similar drive with bluray writing support, but is obviously a lot more expensive, and for those people happy writing to dvd, support for dual layer discs and lightscribe support will be entirely acceptable.

There is also a version of this drive without the lightscribe functionality, but i don't think you would pay much less for that.

So all in all an excellent purchase, just bear in mind that you need a fairly decent pc to get the best from this product when playing HD discs and software like PowerDVD 7 (which is included in the box) or newer to play discs, although i don't know if free software like VLC or Gomplayer allows you to play bluray or hd-dvd titles.

Highly recommended

It only took about 15 minutes to install the drive (including all the faffing about with taking the case to bits and reclipping cables)(and then 30 minutes to download updates), and I'm impressed with this product.

It comes complete with a range of software tools, enabling you to play disks, burn, archive, print labels and so on - The software provided (Cyberlink) is much better than the WinDVD software I bought for around £25 a year ago.

I've now tried it with both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray disks, and both work perfectly. I haven't yet tried to burn anything onto dvd or cd though - I'm sure it'll be okay...

The main reason for buying the drive was to keep the current game-disk in one drive, and be able to play films using the second (changing them over is more trouble than my wife will believe!). The price of this drive now means I can hoover up cheap HD-DVD films, and invest in the latest Blu-Ray films: The Dark Knight was the main reason to buy this to be honest!

Arrived very fast esay to fit. Impressed that it so quiet and that the tray slides out without a clunk. The Icon on the desktop is easy to use and does what it says. Would have like a bit more info with it.

A very nice bit of kit that was easy to install. It was supplied with the necessary cables, so it was simply a case of fitting it in the computer, attaching the power input cable, attaching the sata cable to the motherboard and away it went. So far I have only tried HD Dvd and standard dvd disks and cds, but it has handled everything very capably. It is also a quiet drive in use. My reason for buying was to have a backup player for my HD Dvd collection and I have not been disappointed. Playback via a Gateway FPD2185W monitor has been crisp and dependable, and I have not yet experienced any issues with the provided software. I have not yet burnt any disks, but I have no doubt that it will meet or exceed the performance of my other LG drives. I feel a certain peace of mind that if my Toshiba HD Dvd player decides to give up the ghost at some point in the future, then I will still be able to enjoy playback via this little beast, while for less than the cost of a standalone Bluray player I can dip my toes into buying from that particular format.
If you are hesitant about buying a combi-drive HD player, then take the plunge! This is a worthwhile upgrade for an excellent price - buy it!
