We all know LG, and many of our members
have fallen in love with their LG DVD/BD burners. Here at MyCE we have a long
history of reviewing top of the line burners, and we are very happy to review
the latest Blu-Ray burner from LG.

This time we take a closer look on the
external USB2, self powered 6x Blu-Ray burner. The BP40NS20 is capable of
reading and burning CD-Rs at a max speed of 24x, and can also read and burn
DVDs at a max speed of 8x. The BP40NS20 is able to playback 3D movies with the
necessary equipment and it will also burn BDXL triple layer media at a max
speed of 4x.

The drive is also supports burning of
Millenniata’s MDISCs and I would like to thank Millenniata for providing me the
LG BP40NS20 for this review. More info on the MDISC technology and a list of LG
capable drives can be found on Millenniata’s website.

Drive front

The front of the LG
BP40NS20 has only the BDXL logo, an activity led, the eject button, and the
emergency eject hole. There’s a very simple and clean look to the front of the
drive.
