Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Cant read 4k bluray disks

Dave66765 7/28/2018

It cant read 4k bluray disks. It refuses to downgrade firmware. Im returning it. A bluray reader that reads one third of my blurays is pretty worthless.

Works fine but very noisy

sean c 11/4/2017

I have used this on everything from Cds to Blurays and while it doesnt have the fastest sustained transfer rates it is very steady unlike a lot of drives out there. My only real complaint is that it is very noisy when it is seeking almost makes you think it is broken. While it is great for just about any pc I would not put this in your media pc. Its just way to noisy for a dedicated media pc unless you keep the volume maxed. You can hear this drive over the tv when your trying to keep the volume down and not wake the kids.

Yes, I recommend this product

A Great second drive

dracman 9/22/2017

This is my second LG optical disc drive. I have a Super Multi Blue BD Writer WH10LS30 but it doesnt play 3D blu-ray discs. Adding this drive not only gives me 3D playback but it also comes with support for M-Disc so I can archive important data for a longer time. The drive also supports BD-XL. Its very quiet and its a great fit as an add-on to my pc configuration. I highly recommend it.
