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.

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.

Became a brick in 4 uses

Joch 10/22/2019

Bought on July 22 2019 used about 4 times Now it wont power on at all. Tried replacing cords and using a different computer. Nothing will turn it on. Item also has no customer service repair request information. Closest thing is the LG SP80NB80.AVAR10B which literally looks the same. Model #: GP55EX70 which cannot be found by sight SVC: EX70 S/N: B9DUBL5088288 Rom Ver: PF00 Nothing I do will make it turn on and the only thing I can think of is to open it up and try to repair it that way.

Okay but limited support

GeorgeHF 7/15/2018

Very compact as shown and requires no external power beyond what it gets through USB. Worked fine for a few months after I got it but after it died I couldnt get any support from LG. Replaced it with a larger heavier model GE24 that is also faster but requires an extra connection for power.
