Summary: A blu ray drive for the PC with the added conveniece of software to play blu rays on your pc. as there arent't many free softwares for playing blu ray disks on a computer strange as it may seem. No damage and well packaged must congradulate for the quick turn around.
Summary: Nice looking front, sata interface. Great quality on lightscribe and great software package to run a few burning duties. Works well with regular CDRs and DVDRs. Bought cheap Verbatim 2X BD-RE disk, the drive took three hours to write 22Gig of files. Only real reason the drive lost a point was that on loading an operating system, no matter what I tried, I couldn't boot from this drive thus I think it is not a bootable drive, no matter what I set in the bios.
Good at the price, but slower writing BD-REs than expected

Summary: There wasn't much competition at this price point but, having read a number of reviews, it seemed that this drive would be a good choice - and so far it has been, despite writing BD-REs slower than expected. I bought it mainly for backup and archiving purposes, but with the intention of watching Blu-ray films too.
