Summary: bought this, on recommendation from someone i'm comfortable new what he was talking aboutm to replace a dying optiarc dvd burner - love it, much quieter than the oem ODD, and definitely faster than a speeding bullet in terms of access time. Have burnt a dozen or so DVD movies and 3-4 blu-rays, no issues.
Summary: I purchased this and it would not fit either of the two Toshiba laptops nor my Dell laptop and I was told I had to pay the return shipping even though the description makes it appear it is an universal drive.
Summary: I purchased this blu-ray player for use in a home theater PC. I've been using it now for 2 months without a problem. At the time that I purchased it, I could not find many well rated, cost-effective, slim blu-ray drives. Pros: * The blu-ray player installed easily to the SATA port on my motherboard. * Windows 8 immediately recognized the drive and I was able to watch movies without any additional configuration. * The drive is fairly quiet.
Summary: I had been wanting a Blu-Ray player for my notebook. Little did I know I would find one that is also a full writer in the same price range. Easy installation and everything worked on the first try.
works fine but could have had a few more screw holes ...

Summary: works fine but could have had a few more screw holes (at least one more) to secure to a small case easier instead of just to a laptop. A bit difficult not to overtighten the one fixing screw but worked in the end.
Summary: Take entertainment to the next level with 3D using the (new Power BD-DVD 3D Software bundle). With 2D to 3D converting feature, you can bring new dimensions to all your videos This product description is totally miss leading I Purchase this player on the idea that it would be bundled with the software it so boldly mentions on the amazon site.
