LG WH16NS40 overview

  • 1Description

The LG Electronics WH16NS40 16x Internal Super Multi Blue Blu-ray Disc Rewriter supports a wide variety of optical media. In addition to writing data to DVD and Blu-ray discs at a speed of 16x, it also supports CD burning, and can write and read large format quad, triple and double layer BD-R discs. This Blu-ray burner also supports the playback of 3D Blu-ray discs when used with optional 3D media, 3D glasses and a 3D display. Built-in 4 MB buffer under-run prevention helps to keep disc writing errors to a minimum.

Multi-Blue Compatibility
LG Super Multi Blue optical drives can read and write four types of disc formats in one convenient package. The four disc types are DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD-RAM and Blu-Ray Disc. This gives you the option of choosing the best media for your tasks.
The BDXL format supports high-capacity Blu-ray discs (up to 128GB write-once discs) for users that need to store a large amount of data.
Serial ATA Technology
Serial ATA is a 1.5 Gb/s replacement for the Parallel ATA physical storage interface used to connect storage devices, such as hard disks, DVD and CD rewriters to the PC motherboard. Serial ATA is scalable, enables design of smaller PCs, and allows future enhancements to the computing platform.
M-DISC Technology
When used with optional M-DISC optical media, M-DISC technology provides a long-term storage solution that retains data much longer than standard media.

    LG WH16NS40 reviews

    WH16NS40 16x Internal Super Multi Blue Blu-ray Disc Rewriter (OEM Version) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm 0 for 2 Bought my first one and noticed a few minutes into watching Blu-Ray movie it started to skip then freeze. tried different movies. Tried same movies on my other BR drive and worked flawlessly. After other tests to no avail I RMA'd it for an exchange cause I have never had any problems with any of my drives and figured it was a one time fail... Got my replacement drive and I first tried burning a movie and after two failures, attempted to watch a BR movie, and right away the movie started skipping. Tried a different movied and same thing. Tried drive in a different computer and still, it failed. Will RMA but no exchange this time (not for the same drive anyway)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Burner/Reader - also works good with M-Disks Bought the WH16NS40 specifically to use for the M-Disk, although it works great on conventional optical disks as well. I've used this LG unit to burn CD's and DVD's. Haven't burned a Blu-ray yet, but it reads them just fine. Burned about 20 M-Disk DVD's and all worked just fine in four other readers that I have. I updated the firmware in the LG burner to the latest version listed on the M-Disk web site. Overall this seems like a great value, especially if it holds up for a while. It's very quiet, I have to look at the green LED to see if it's running.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compatible is not the same as Kind of Compatible Caused long timeouts (observed as periodic hangs) on my PC with Intel DP35DP with RAID. Stuck for 60 seconds at time trying to access the drive or eject the tray. Check for drive firmware updates - firmware on web site is two revisions older than the one on the drive. No support information available describing this problem. Swapped it out with an ASUS DVD drive from another PC which worked fine (so power, data and motherboard are fine). Moved it to another PC and it worked there but it wasn't the one I bought it for. Seems like LG has a problem being fully compatible since other drives don't seem to have this problem. I would advise people to avoid this drive and save the agony. Next time I'll try another brand, I can't get these few hours of my life back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Review 2014 This is the same unit made for retail except it's only the drive, no cables, software or mounting parts. Works very good and is plenty fast. No noise, quiet as a mouse once a BD has started to play.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal and great ease Ordered this on a Wednesday, had it delivered the next day, unboxed it, shut off the PC and opened the case, installed this new unit, and was burning DVDs all in less than 15 minutes. It could not have been easier (save for someone installing it for me.) Great price and it has worked flawlessly. No software issue or hardware handshake problems. LG quality.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No accessories? While I do not have any problem with the unit itself, I was very disappointed that it came without the accessories (software & Mdisk CD/DVD, and sata cable) that are identified on the LG website as being part of the unit. The B&H website did not say that this unit would not come with those accessories, nor did you say that it was also unboxed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of data in less time Backing up digital photos on CD takes a lot of time. Changing from CD to Blu-ray really cut the time down. I was able to put more than 25 CDs on each BD. I look forward to converting to permanent backups with this drives M disc capability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG WH16NS40 Blu-ray disc drive This is 16x blu-ray drive from LG compatible with M-DISC disk. This is OEM version. So, it is barebone drive. No software included but it is plug-n-play with Windows 10. This drive is pretty quiet during operation.
