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.

Jonah27 4/12/2021

I bought this product about a couple months ago and it worked fine up until today. It stopped working out of nowhere and I had to use the emergency release button to get out the disc that was stuck in there. Would not recommend this product.

Fantastic DVD Writer

TomTrojan 4/10/2021

I had been looking for a quality DVD writer for a long time. Since we are an LG appliance family I decided to give the GP55EX70 a try and I am not disappointed. The overall quality of the DVD writer is outstanding. Its slim size and very easy use puts it at the top of DVD writers. I strongly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an electronic product that goes way beyond expectations. Another outstanding product from LG

Drivers no longer available for this device

Driverless 4/5/2020

I purchased this device from Best Buy then purchased a new laptop and was looking for the drivers online lost the CD. This model does not have any drivers available on the LG website. I cant get my laptop to recognize the device. I guess Im going to have to buy a new one. Will have to look for one that is NOT an LG product. Too bad. Ive got multiple other LG products and swear by all of them.. This one is the exception to the rule. Worked great till I had to change computers.
