Might have been a nice little player...if not for the seller :/
26 September 2013
Summary: Hmmm where to start? I don't normally leave reviews but I was so unimpressed with the service from all-in-one-logistics I felt I had to. First of all the packaging was a load of rubbish, just a cardboard box with a bit of cardboard paper shoved inside, nothing to stop the player from banging about. This player came with no cables and no software, and when I contacted the seller they were not very helpful.
Summary: I brought this and it works for dvd's and cd's. I followed all the instructions and tried to gather information on my own about how the drivers work but none of them work. Can someone help me? If not then buy it as a dvd/cd player and NOT a blu ray player.
Summary: I bought this LiteOn as a cheap way to watch Blu-ray on my computer. It arrives in a plain cardboard box with a software disc, but no screws, no leads and no instruction manual. After I installed the drive, which was quick and easy to do, I then had to install the Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 software to play Blu-ray discs. Once the software was installed and updated I was able to watch Blu-ray discs on my computer.
Summary: I managed to read a blu-ray disk a couple of times, then it refused to read any more. Still read DVDs and CDs. I sent it back and got refunded without fuss. Although I only needed a reader, alternative readers were a lot more expensive so I ended up getting a burner "LG BH16NS40.AUAR10B 16x SATA Internal BDRW Retail Kit" for £65. That was is reasonably priced and pretty fast too.
Summary: Oh dear. One point I missed when I ordered this. Its only a reader. It doesn't burn any thing. Now, maybe that should have been obvious to me. But I was expecting it to be able to burn CDs and DVDs. I know. It only mentions the word "read" and doesn't say "burn" anywhere. But considering as a basic dvd burner is fifteen quid and this is over fifty I was really expecting it burn the cheap stuff. Oh bother, Oh well. Better spend another £15 and buy a dvd burner instead.
Summary: I'm sure it'll do what it says it can do, but it only came with a SATA data cable. There is no means to power this drive with what's provided. My motherboard has no SATA power cord so I've had to order a SATA power cable and am waiting for that to be delivered to see if it works.
