Summary: For the most part the hardware worked OK. The software that comes with it is Cyberlink BD solutions. After installing it, I found it has only limitied options. If you want to create home movies on Blue ray you are all set. If you want to back up some files - think again. The software provided will not burn a Data Disk. This means that you can not copy files from your hard drive onto the blueray disc for back-up.
