LG Electronics Slim Portable 8x USB 2.0 External DVD+/-RW Drive - Black



Time and again, MacBooks have proven themselves to be very useful laptop computers for everyday use. But, like everything else, the MacBook has a weakness: it can’t do anything with a CD or DVD. So what do you if you need to access data on a CD or DVD or create copies of files to similar media? No, you don’t sit and cry. You get the LG Slim Portable DVD Writer.

It might sound complicated, but rest assured that the LG External DVD Drive is easy to use. This external DVD drive can be connected to your MacBook through USB connection and has M-Disc support. Now you can plug this external drive into your MacBook and burn or even play your DVD and CD collection from a few years ago.

Effectively use the LG GP50NB40 DVD writer whenever you need to burn data to an optical disk. It allows users to copy data onto a disk in less time compared to other disk drives with its 8x DVD-Max writing speeds. And once you’re done burning the disk, you get superior data protection from M-DISC support. M-DISC makes use of a patent rock-like recording surface instead of the organic dye to etch your data on a disc. This means your data won’t get worn out of the disc; instead it will have the capacity to last for many years.

Ever notice how noisy some disc readers are? You won’t get that with the LG Slim Portable DVD Writer. Its Silent Play technology automatically controls disc read speed to provide users optimal noise reduction.

The best part about the LG External DVD Drive is not that it’s not exclusive to the MacBook. It also works perfectly with computers that have a Windows 8 operating system. So you can share it with your pals or work on your Mac and Windows computers without having to get more than one DVD writers.

Order the LG Slim Portable DVD Writer from MacMall today and experience fast CD burning and media playback whenever you need it. Also available, LG Electronics Super Multi-Portable 8x USB 2.0 External DVD+/-RW Drive/Writer - Silver.

A REAL VALUE!

2015-01-27
By Mike D. 
The drive on my IMAC was jammed when my Granddaughter mistakenly slipped a S Card into it by error. Rather then lug my 27'' IMAC into a shop and lose it for days I bought this unit for the few times I ever need a DVD drive. I was really surprised at how easy it hooks up and how well it works and the software is really very very good. It also allows me to both play and burn CDS which the IMAC won't do. Since the nearest IMAC service is over an hour away and they have a huge back up this cheapie solution has really worked out very well so far.

Substandard Product

2015-01-12
By Phil 
I was disappointed with the quality of this product. It seemed to me to be of rather flimsy design and not engineered for user simplicity and control. It doesn't have a button for exjecting a disk and requires that you use the emergency ejection pinhole to release the tray. I was unable to get it to work with my iMac.

LG portable DVD drive

2015-01-06
By Tom 
Had to buy this when I upgraded to a new MacBook that doesn't have a CD drive (like many new laptops). Needed to load older software that I had on CD. Plugged this in to the Mac USB, booted right up and worked without issue. Great price, seems like a sturdy unit.

Scratchy?

2014-12-16
By ep 
It works great! Connects to my Mac Mini super easily and perfectly. However, it is much louder than I thought it was going to be. It makes sort of a scratchy noise, but it easy to ignore. Haven't tried burning anything on it, but I bought it to read DVDs and CDs and not to actually burn anything. For the price I paid for it (Black Friday at $22) it's fantastic. Don't know that I would be as happy if I paid full price for it--but it is a solid alternative to Apple's drive.
