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.

Unable to play a DVD without downloading..

Phantomduckie 11/13/2022

You have to get extra software just to watch a DVD. It comes with a trail version of the software which just downloaded icons. We then contacted the help desk and was informed that they would have to send us a link to get the actual software. What is the point of that? If your product is so crappy that you cant even include the correct software to make it play a DVD then what the point.

Light sturdy quiet works great

skaizun 9/11/2022

Surprisingly light and sturdy this LG external CD/DVD reader/writer was just what I needed when I had to transfer files from my old computer to my new one the latter of which does not have an optical drive as is the case with most computers these days. Even though it comes with a disc pre-loaded with a few programs I had no trouble using the device without it attaches via a standard type A USB cable. I have read and written text files images and videos both of my own creation and from previous discs and have checked the written ones on another computer and CD/DVD player with no issues. It is surprisingly quiet and I appreciate the LED indicator flashing as it processes when I watch a movie using it I turn the unit so the LED is away from me to avoid the distraction. FWIW I selected it for two reasons: It was half-off during a sales period and because of the LG brand which I have happily used with numerous products over the years. When not in use I unplug it and store it in its original box.

Does not work on macOS DO NOT buy for a Mac

MS456 8/20/2022

I bought this hoping to use it with a 2020 Intel Macbook Air. If I plug it in through a USB to USB-C adapter it clicks and the green light turns on and off forever. It is not recognized by the system at all. Pressing the eject button does not open the tray. Both LG and Apple seem completely uninterested providing ways to fix this problem. This may be Apples fault but if LG sells this claiming compatibility they are just as much to blame.

Great DVD player at a reasonable price

Sydney57 7/31/2022

I am teaching a film class this summer and needed a DVD Player to use on my LG Laptop. I am a big fan of LG their products never disappoint. I did my research and picked the DVD player up. The picture and sound are clear and it was not that expensive. LG is a reliable company with electronic products and my DVD player is the newest member of my LG family

Worthless iteme

B93idso 5/29/2022

I bought this with my new desktop. It has been a month and I STILL dont know how to use it. I tried calling LG service. and was on hold for 30 minutes Burning up my phone minutes I must note Whos paying for THAT??? I tried the website but it said there was No support info available for SP80NB80 products. There is a disc with it but no instructions about how to operate anything after you put the disc in. It said it was taking me to the CLOUD. wherever that is and I never got another response out of the thing after that point. It just sat there and did nothing.

Portable DVD Writer - New Experience

JDNE 5/9/2022

I am used to have the DVD R/W device mounted in my desktop so this was a little different for me. I still have tried out all of the different apps that it came with. I tested the playback but have not tested the Media Suite applications. I have never had any problems with LG equipment so I am looking forward to getting to know this new one.

CatThomas 3/31/2022

It is slim and lightweight. I can carry it in my purse when I work on others computers. It doesnt need an extra power cord which makes it more portable. However it would not install Windows 7 because a driver was missing.

Great if you need it

rdold 3/10/2022

I bought this DVD peripheral when replacing my older desktop as I still want the flexibility to use physical media. This works for me and I have not noticed any real shortcomings due to the slower relative connectivity speed especially given the cost of similar devices with faster connections. One thing I did notice was excessive spinning noise on the first two discs I ripped but the drive soon quieted down and has since been unnoticeable when in use. I would definitely recommend and would buy it again.

Worked for a time

Mike1968 11/16/2021

It worked for some time without issues. Now the drive grinds for a bit and then stop. Windows 10 will no longer recognize it as a drive. I guess that it is my loss. I dont recall when or where I bought it and assume that LG would not replace it under warranty at this point. I will start looking for a new drive from a different manufacturer.

Now that built-ins are no longer offered...

AndrewCF 8/31/2021

Those of us with large CD collections who like to make mix tape CD-Roms that we can play in our cars who dont have sophisticated phones will want to consider an inexpensive but efficient player/writer like this. Dependability remains to be seen but the unit is simple to install and works well. The manual could be improved but the value of this unit is clear.
