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 and 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.

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

It works well

Submitted by 1725topp - 5/5/2018

I purchased this about six months ago and Ive been able to burn Blu-ray and DVDs equally in under an hour for most movies that I have created on my computer. One I have created the movie on my computer burning it to a Blu-ray or DVD is easy with my LG M-Disc burner.

Great Blu-ray Drive

Submitted by MelowYelow - 3/3/2018

Great optical drive It has high quality it looks good and runs quietly. Plug-n-play installation was easy on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. The read and write speeds are great for casual users and super users. I havent used the included CyberLink Media Suite 10 yet.
