  • Summary: It works great as a blu-ray movie player with the software it includes.
  • Pros: Plays Blu-ray movie disks and it comes with PowerDVD8 which allows you to play Blu-ray.
  • Cons: It does not write to disks, neither Blu-ray nor DVD nor CD.

Good reader, ideal for media server

  • Summary: I bought this to put into my HP MicroServer which I am using for an iTunes server as I wanted to import some existing Blu-Rays into my collection and play/stream others. It installed very easily and I didn't suffer from any of the firmware issues others are having. I am running Windows Home Server 2011. Remember to purchase a SATA power/data cable if your motherboard supports it and has a spare slot to take advantage of greater transfer speeds.

Hardware is good but be aware of a couple of things

Mitch, Amazon

  • Summary: Great for playing back Blu Rays, but disappointed it did not write DVD's and the software included, although ok, does not support 3D (I have a 3D gaming monitor) and you have to pay extra for that, quite a bit extra. You could use a 3D external player, using HDMI. Overall it is ok, but I had to fork out for a new DVD writer as my old one packed up, so although good value, it is a luxury that perhaps I'm not going to fully utilize that often.

Pretty good!!!.

  • Summary: I purchased this to view Blu-Ray/Blu-Ray 3D's in my PC and I'm totally satisfied!!!. The only reason I didn't put five stars is that it lacks DVD/CD recording capability (but for the price is totally fair) and the overall construction quality is quite low!!!. If you want an alternative to a dedicated Blu-Ray player buy this!!!.

player is fine, but beware of the bundled software with Windows 8

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: The hardware works absolutely fine; booted off it with no problems for installation of Windows. However, the bundled OEM version "Cyberlink PowerDVD 10" software refuses to play Blu-Ray discs on WIndows 8. It's a bug that's been known for a year, and CyberLink aren't intending to fix it on that verison ever, only on their newer paid versions. They'll give you the option of paying 35 quid of upgrading to a paid version, obviously.

Absolute bargain

  • Summary: Blu-ray playback only but the bundled Cyberlink DVD 10 sells for £23 so do the maths and this is excellent value. Knocked a star of because there appears to be no fix to play Blu-ray through HDMI via my receiver, had to install direct to the TV despite setting the receiver to throughput.

Good Drive

Mr. N. Haslam "Nick Haslam", Amazon

  • Summary: It's a good Blueray drive, and certainly plays disks well (the ones I've tried anyway). My only issue is that it doesn't write disks, but that is more my issue with reading the product description, than an issue with the product!
