Summary: Really like front panel hidden eject button. gives it a much cleaner line. Like blue led as it matches case lighting. Fast install. Windows 7 and 8.1 loads drivers and is ready to go. Make sure you have SATA power cable and SATA data cable as this is a bare drive. Plays DVDS and BLU RAYS perfectly. Writes all media except BLU RAYS. Don't think you can do much better at this price.
Summary: No software out of the box - you have to buy EXPENSIVE blu-ray software to watch them! Think twice before buying this one! If the price is great, there's something screwy going on in the shadows! Always count your fingers VERY carefully after you shook hands with Tigerdirect!
