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.

Worked for short period now useless

Boo2LGproducts 5/21/2023

This is my 2nd unit and both recorded 4 or 5 bluray discs and now neither records. Ive tried every brand of blank media I could find five different burning programs three different computers and even tried updating firmware. Everytime I try burning a bluray I get an error. The only reason I bought 2nd unit is the limited options from better known manufacturers. I wouldnt suggest this if your looking for reliability or a quality made player/burner especially since its higher price range. My last LG tv was about same poor quality.

Nice little dvd/bluray player

stevewar01 1/23/2023

Nice player for dvds. For Blu ray it needs a software package download from a 3rd party however. Would give it 5 stars if it came with all the needed software

Buyer BEWARE

Old_AL 12/28/2022

Bought this in 2022 but broke within 2 months of purchase. LG wont honor warranty and will not respond to multiple requests. This player was great while it worked. I would not purchase again.

Fast and Compatible

Vegas Vance 12/17/2022

Got this unit to use as external burner for my HP laptop. It works flawlessly and without any issues. It burns all types of media that you could need. It came with software from Cyberlink which I wasnt all that keen on until I used the bundle included. Now it it quick and hassle free to use the included utilitys. It also is MDISC compatible to allow for the authoring of life time archives. Highly recommend this great AIO burner and player unit.

LG External Blu-Ray drive

NotEnthused 10/17/2022

I bought this Blu-Ray drive a few weeks ago and it came with CyberlinkCL software. The CL software doesnt work very well. It played ok with standard DVD. But I found I had issues with standard Blu Ray. It would not play. I figured out why. A software bug forced an important message back to the primary desktop screen. Once I OKd the message it finally worked for Blu-RAy display of the movie. Apparently this CL software has minimal functionality and you must purchase more expensive products to get all you want. CL support is not great. CL said its not their problem its LGs problem. Neither is LGs support that great. LG recommended I download a free package called Leawo. It only plays Blu-Ray and standard DVD. I want to be able to PLAY/READ/WRITE/COPY and CONVERT media. Needless to say I am very disappointed in the software supplied with the unit. You would think that LG/CL would have beta tested their product combo to see if it works properly???? The audio CD player played but not as the tutorial indicated Missing software functions I could not convert to MP3 at all. Disappointed for weeks
