Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 830-997-4507 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

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.

Ok if you dont want it to read CDs.

Works ok on DVD and Blu Ray. Have not been able to install any software from CD. All drive does is spin up and stop and repeat. All firmware is current.

Simple excellence .. still relevant in 2023

JustHarry 1/8/2023

Just updated my desktop to brand new HP running Windows 11 Home. Love the new HP but it came without an optical drive and maybe Im old fashioned but I still want one to load software/drivers and play dvds and music. This LG drive installed and operates flawlessly .. and the bundled software is excellent. Dont hesitate with this one easy buying decision winner

Nice product with easy setup and a nice suite of software. Initially it wouldnt play a Blu-Ray disk but after updating the software it played perfectly. The drive is also very quiet compared to others Ive used.
