    LG GP60NS50 reviews

    GP60NS50 8x External DVD Disc Writer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Drive, Reasonable Price, Excellent Service You can get no-name CD/DVD drives for less money on @ but who knows what sort of cheap piece of junk will arrive in the mail? I decided to spend just a few dollars more and go with a name brand I can trust from a seller who stands behind its products and service. As for the drive itself, it's worked flawlessly since I received it a couple of weeks ago. My only gripe is that, by design. the physical eject button does't function for Apple users and a disc must be ejected using my Mac's on-screen eject icon. Not great functionality for a product that's specifically featured as being Mac compatible. Still, all-in-all, I'm very happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, easy to use for the mac. I had no problems hooking up this device to my macbook pro retina to install some software that I had for my previous machine. The price was incredible, and the drive matches my macbook.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works! Worth the money. I gave it 3 stars because it is a basic disc drive. Nothing fancy. No wow factor. The drive worked right out of the box without any problems. I used it's basic feature to read software disc to load onto my computer. My operating system is Windows 10. No problems. No concerns. I bought on the cheap and I have no regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this external optical drive! So far, so good! I've been through so many of these that, obviously, time will tell but so far, I am very, very pleased. I am thrilled with the price. It got here so quickly and I am most happy with this item! I download many books from the classes I am taking as well as tutorials for use in learning web design. I burn A LOT of dvds. I hope this one will give me a good long run! (Others have not.) I don't have any issues with it as of yet. So far, it is fabulous!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great drive at a great price! I have a new macbook, and the new mac's come without disc drives. I needed to buy an external drive that worked with mac, and that wasn't too expensive. I was hesitant about buying this because I didn't think something so inexpensive would be good, but it is fantastic! It's small, it's lightweight, and it works flawlessly. Thank you!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great DVD player for MacBook Air Ordered this from B&H because I wanted a DVD player to use with my MacBook Air. I wanted to be able to watch DVDs from Netflix and the library. I have to say it does feel a little bit fragile, but the drive looks nice and does the job well. I can't speak to its DVD-writing capabilities, but a DVD played right away with no trouble on my laptop running El Capitan, and I would recommend it for sure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very very good I bought this to use with my mac mini. No drivers needed to be installed or updated or whatever, and I was able to use it right out of the box. I use it for rebook CD burning, and also for 4.7GB DVD data backups and have had no errors up to this point. I use higher quality Verbatim and Maxell DVD and CD media and have had very good results using this

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully compatible with Mac I have always bought burners Mac's, but I was struck by the price of this burner LG. It took 70 copies and I have not had any problems. It was fully compatible with iDVD Mac, did not arise any problem. Highly recommended.
