I spent many years in Berchtesgaden in southern Germany.

windows 7 home premium 64 bit

I wouldnt recommend LG GGW H20L drive, that is if your using windows Home Premium 64 bit.

DVDs and CDs are fine. Blu Ray playback results in BSOD, not sure if its a Cyberlink / PowerDVD 7 issue or the actual drive. Thinking of using a trialware program to test if its software that causes this issue.
It was faultless under windows Vista 64bit, and for that O/S the drive comes highly recommended, but the drive has been superseeded with the LG BH10LS30, and possibly not the above issues. Would also suggest check if the drive works, and is certified for windows 7. Cheers.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

I entirely agree with byngo.

Having recently acquired a Liteon iHBS 112 BD writer (see it here) - my long cherished dream buy - I now feel its just a waste.

A BD Reader coupled with esata/USB 3/Firewire external HDD (read Seagate GoFlex Ultraportable external HDD with interchangeable adapter/cable) is the way to go.

I keep the BD ISOs on the harddrive and mount them to my Arcsoft TMT3 player using mikinho's Mount Image.

One can do all this and just an external BD Reader optical drive is more than sufficient. I already have a Sony-Optiarc USB external BD reader/DVD writer and another Plextor PX-B120U - see it here - is on its way. My desktops and media center PCs have esata ports. My desktop is also USB3 capable now with a PCIe USB3 card plugged in.

IMO, one should only go in for these upgrades instead of a BD burner for their PC.

windows 7 home premium 64 bit

Well for anyone interested Arcsoft totalmedia 3 plays Blu ray, without issues on the LG GGW H20L.
Unfortunately cant get Cyberlinks software supplied with burner to work without BSOD, and it looks like they're no plans at this stage to update much for that drive.

The arcsoft software, trial, dosent have sound at the beginning of play however. During the movie it is flawless, might have something to do with it being a trial version perhaps.
