    LG WP50NB40 reviews

    Slim Portable Blu-ray/DVD Writer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't burn M-Disc DVDs I bought this burner so I could burn M-Disc DVDs and Blu-ray disks. My first disk stopped mid-process with an unknown error. I then successfully burned a DVD, not wanting to waste any of the more expensive M-Disc DVDs. I attempted to burn another M-Disc DVD, with the same lack of success. The software that comes with the burner is confusing (there are about 6 separate programs) and no mention is made of M-Disc capability in the software. The failed burns were accomplished with both Windows and the special software. The burner is of no use to me since I already had a Blu-ray burner that can burn Blu-rays and DVDs. I plan to abandon my efforts to use M-discs. I didn't try to burn any Blu-ray M-discs, as the Blu-ray discs I ordered arrived damaged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bluray writer at its best Good looking, light, easy to hook to your preferred computer. Only thing missing might be a soft case like the one I had with my older dvdrw. It's also compatible with m-disc, bluray 100gb. Highly recommended!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Swiss Army Knife of media drives! I've had this drive for a few months and it has performed flawlessly every time I've used it. I'm pretty sure this drive supports every type of media you throw in it. Highly recommended!
