**UPDATE IT**

Ian M., Newegg
14 February 2013
  • Summary: To all the people who are complaining about it being choppy or laggy when trying to play their movies, update the firmware. Mine did the same thing, but after a little research, other people were experiencing the same thing and later directed to their site where an update was available.
  • Pros: Easy to use and cheap
  • Cons: Needed a firmware update before it was fully functional

  • Summary: It lasted about two years, almost to the day and then just stopped working. I'm probably just going to buy another one since they are so cheap. Its hard to justify twice as much for a player when you have to go to such software hassle to just use the thing.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: You'll have to figure out your own software, makes it a bit of a hassle to watch blu-rays. Try VLC or XBMC.

Good deal

  • Pros: Got on the cheap a few years ago during black Friday sale.
  • Cons: Had a skipping issue, would happen every few minutes, tested with multiple playback software. However I managed to find a firmware flash on the web (version WL0D) which resolved the issue. Mine came with WL0B. Unfortunately the manufacturers website did not have this for download. Writing this fo...

Works Mostly

  • Summary: I didn't pay close enough attention and didn't realize that it doesn't burn any type of disc. I thought since it says Blu-Ray Disc reader, that it didn't burn Blu-Rays, but it means any thing... My Fault
  • Pros: Plays Blu-Rays, DVDs and CDs. Blu-rays look awesome on my 27" monitor. :)
  • Cons: Doesn't Burn ANY type of disc

  • Pros: Plugged it in, worked great. What else is there to say? Even comes with a silver faceplate just in case you don't have a black case and want it to match.
  • Cons: So far, none. It's nothing terribly special either, though.

May give some hassle on Win7 but works

Kyle W., Newegg
5 June 2011
  • Summary: This is not a DVD-RAM drive as another commenter suggested; DVD-RAM burns DVDs. This is a Blu-Ray DVD-ROM, i.e. reads Blu-Ray/DVD/CD.
  • Pros: It's pretty cheap and fast, and comes with swappable faceplates if you care about that.
  • Cons: I have Windows 7 x64 and it was kind of a pain getting this thing to be recognized. It would show up in Explorer etc. for the first few minutes, then randomly disappear. After searching the internet for hours and trying all kinds of solutions, I eventually moved it to a different SATA port and it...
