Summary: The drive work quite well but the driver software has a stability issue. I have had to reload it three times. It loads OK but for unknown reasons, just stops working. None of my other device drivers do that. So I seem to have to re-load the driver.
Summary: Very nice product! Using in my computer to run Blu-Rays on my TV. Works well, software installed works pretty good, just needs a little fine tuning to get it to work right, but software is good. Have been using this drive for about 1 month now, and still flawless playback. I am very pleased with this drive!
Summary: I installed this thing just recently in my computer and it is running like a dream. It is ultra quiet, extremely fast, and comes with a whole bunch of useful programs. I have my own little blu-ray theater now.
Summary: windows 8 had no problem detecting it and it works fine with my dvd's. Tried one blue ray and it could not read it, even after I installed the specific drivers coming with the product. I was immediately directed to a window where they want to sell me rev 13 of the software for $50. So far I don't get more value than if I had bought a $20 dvd player.
