  • Summary: Wanted to play blurays in the HTPC. This was the cheapest drive I could find. Ridiculous that bluray drives are so expensive, but not much I can do about that. It works, came with some software that plays blurays. The software is junk and rather bloaty, but you kind of need it to play the blurays, and once you're running you don't really notice the bloat. I have no reason to get this particular model again if something cheaper or with better software comes along.
  • Pros: Cheap Bluray reader
  • Cons: Packaged software for playing blurays is bloaty

  • Summary: Affordable Blu-ray reader with DVD writer combo, easy to install, worked right away. Got up to 25MB/s read speed, seek time not so bad. Reasonably quiet. I'm enjoying watching Blu-rays with this drive.
  • Pros: Affordable Blu-ray reader
  • Cons: None so far

A waste of money

  • Summary: I bought this for a new HTPC build. It's worth pointing out that mine didn't come with any bundled software so I had to update the firmware manually. PowerDVD isn't great anyway so it wasn't that much of a problem. It does not recognise most Blu-Rays even though I use AnyDVD HD which has worked perfectly for my other builds. DO NOT but this if you are wanting to use it as a blu-ray player, there are much better alternatives out there.

I would not recommend for Windows 7 users.

Not a happy shaver, Amazon

  • Summary: This worked as a player, nice and quiet but the proprietary software it forces upon you (power DVD) is a unfriendly mess that you cannot disable auto play features on for your other media, disabling all other audio playback on my windows 7 until it was shut down and the other programs were reset.

  • Summary: Pretty good Blu-ray, good appearance too, works just fine. The software included is not enough to run all Blu-ray disks, so, if you want to get a Blu-ray drive is better to check a good software too for all kind of Blu-ray, Blu-ray+Software get over 100,-€, without software you can use it but not for movies.
